Orange engine light comes on bike backfires speedo returns to 0

If the engine check light is coming on after it has backfired and then the speedo drops, then it most likely your ignition switch, replace with an after market one as the hd contacts are not up to the job. if your speedo still fails after that then check the wirering from then speedo sensor located behind the startermotor and goes up behind the oil tank to a connector under the seat before going to the ecu use a multimeter to test the three cables for continuty. that should point you inthe right direction.

03 sportster cuts out while crusing off and on

My '04 XL1200C had a grounding problem that was causing this symptom. Check both ends of your battery cables; I had to move my grounding cable to an alternate location that was less susceptible to the vibration of normal cruising.

96 xl883 speedo problem

Several possibilities. Your speed sensor may have picked up some metal from the trans. Remove it and wipe off the chips. Bad speedometer or intermittent bad connection or broken wire to the speedo.
