Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic
The problem with your Roadglide seems to be an earthing problem. Any weird electrical fault, jumping meters and non-working gauges/lights is an earthing problem.
Firstly, did the Harley garage fit the correct speed sensor for your bike? Check that first. Did you keep the old one to check?
Next up, disconnect the battery then check the earth strap from the back of the speedo unit. Undo the bolt, clean up the terminal with a wire brush. Do the same for both battery lead ends. Put petroleum jelly on the ends of the leads to stop this happening again. It stops the ends from 'furring' up, this is calcium deposits from it reacting in oxygen and reduces the flow of electricity.
Refit all of the wiring, start her up and take her for a test ride. Have the lights, radio on and do some 3rd gear pulls from low revs. This will put a drain on the system, but it will also show that the problem has gone.
Hope this helps you and your bike regains its appeal for you. Please vote for me, if you find this useful. Thanks very much :)
