Hi Ritterfamily, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.

SOURCE: where is the oil drain plug/bolt on a 2002 harley

Lay underneath the bike on the left side, and look towards the front of the bike, there will be a tube that runs from the back left side of the motor, to the right straight into the side of the frame with a hoseclamp on the end of it. to make sure you have the right rubber line, IT IS THE ONLY LINE WITH A HOSECLAMP ON THE ENTIRE BIKE. loosen the hoseclamp, and then pull the line off the frame (There is a stud welded on the frame, and this hose slides over it, and then the hoseclamp seals it off) This is your drain tube. Make sure the motor is warmed up *(of course) BEFORE you change the oil, let it drain until it's empty. MAKE SURE YOU STAND THE BIKE STRAIGHT UP, OFF THE KICKSTAND FOR ABOUT 15 SECONDS TO MAKE SURE IT ALL DRAINS OUT. Then put it back on the stud, and tighten the hose clamp. Loosen the filter on the front of the motor (it's a spin on car-type) Then replace it, make sure you put a thin film on the gasket of the NEW filter before replacing. It is normal to get oil on the front of the motor, it is unavoidable. it will hold 3 qts with filter.

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!
