Best answer would be to buy a service manual, for my part is is way back beyond my knowledge and expertise.

SOURCE: 2007 harley davidson xl sportster 883 speedometer

If you're lucky it might be the speed sensor located in the gearbox casing. This is a hall effect device and is magnetic and so can pick up metal fragments from the inside of the gearbox. I have a 2001 Sportster and the Sensor is located on the top of the gearbox casing, just below the starter. I'd expect it to be in a similar position on a later bike such as yours, but I can't be sure. Once you've located it, take it out (can be a bit fiddly) and make sure that its clear of any debris. If not the sensor, you're probably going to need to substitute in a working speedo. Be careful because a pre-2004 speedo is electronic, but is not compatible with 2007 bike. Best of luck!

Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net. I'll send you a JPEG file, like a pircture, of the way the cams install. This forum limits me to a file size of 450Kb and that's too small. That's why I have people contact me directly. Please remind me of what you need.

The link below is a GREAT place to answer this (and other) questions about your Sportie.
http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/showthread.php?t=563945

But you might have better luck (and a better time) at:

http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/1600762/INSTANT+DOWNLOAD+Harley+Davidson+XL+/+XLH+883+1100+1200+Sportster+Service+Repair+Manual+WIRING+DIAGRAMS+TROUBLESHOOTING+ENGINE+OVERHAUL+1986+2003

I know it's a long link, but just highlight it, copy it and paste it into your browser. It's worth it.

I've owned, built, worked on, raced, did endurance trials, plus on Sporties from 883 to 100 to 1200, so let me know if this helped.

1993 harley davidson sportster 883 will not move.


I would check my Clutch before going any further. Sounds to me like it is not engaging or possibly have you checked the rear chain?
