Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

I bought a 1992 1200 Sportster and it didnt have a speedometer cable. It has a wide glide front in with a drag specialties mechanical speedo. I went to the Harley shop and bought a new cable but cant figure out where the lower end connects. Where does the lower end of speedo cable connect? Thank You.

The is should be a speed drive unit on the axle that has a tab that sticks into a slot on the wheel. The lower end of the speedo cable screws into this unit.

Good Luck

2002 Dyna FXDP turn signals will not turn off. Stay on after activating. Bad TSM?


Is it when you changed the speedometer that the problem began??? This is helpful information. ALWAYS give all relevant and recent bike information and history.


The self cancelling feature uses numerous inputs from speedo to the TSM/TSSM.


If the problem began with the new speedo installation contact Drag Specialties and ask for help and instructions with their speedo etc.

If the problem did not start with the new speedo installation post a comment with more information and can go from there.

2002 FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide: Was riding last night and the speedometer stopped working as I was riding. Would like to know is this the speedometer that needs replaced or is it the speedometer speed sensor?...


ON THE SPEEDO PROBLEM, JUST CHECK THE SENSOR FIRST, WHICH WILL BE ON THE REAR AXLE, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN.
THE GUY THAT WENT TO THE DEALER SHOULD JUST WRITE-OFF THOSE CREEPS. GO TO A LOCAL SCOOTER MECH. YOU DON'T NEED THOSE $100.00 AN HR. ******** WORKING ON YOUR BIKE, BESIDES HALF OF THEM ARE RIGHT OUT OF SCHOOL AND DON'T KNOW **** FROM SHINOLA.

Speedometer is sticking. I have a 95 wide glide. what can I do?


Replace the speedometer. If the speedo is sticking showing you're moving at 60 mph or so when you're actually sitting still, the movement in the speedo is bad. There are places that can "rebuild" speedometers but they aren't practical for your purpose. These place specialize in restoring older speedometers and are very expensive. You can simply purchase a replacement speedo for less than these people would want to repair yours.

Good Luck

My speedo on my 1998 fxdwg quit working where should i start tracking the problem is this common problem


If it's a mechanical cable driven unit, take the cable off the backside of the speedo. Raise the front wheel off the ground and spin it. See if the cable is turning. If so, the speedo head is bad

If it's an electronic unit, the sensor is at the rear of the transmission on the right side. Remove the bolt that holds it in and carefully work the sensor out of it hole. Wipe the sensor off looking for a small piece of metal stuck to it. Reinstall sensor and ride bike. If that doesn't do it, either the sensor is bad or the speedo head is bad.

My speedometer quit working. The sensor is clean.


The easiest way is to take the speedo cable off and inspect it. If the speedo has a cable, it's a mechanical speedo. Unscrew the cable at the either the speedo or the speedo drive mechanism. Pull the inner core out and examine it for damage or wear. the ends of the cable are sort of square as compared to the rest of the cable that is round. Make sure the cable is not broke or the square ends are rounded off. If the cable looks good, lubricate it with wheel bearing grease and reinstall the inner cable back into it's outer sleeve. If the cable is good and working as it should, that leaves nothing else but the speedo.

I have a used 03 gsxr600 n the speedometer dont work?


Is it electronic or is it mechanical?

I dont know which it is but suspect it is mechanical. Id check for a broken core in the cable.

You can tell almost immediately by looking at the back of the speedo. Is there a thing you can unscrew there? If there is, unscrew it and you can tell if it is mechanical or electric.

Maybe not what you were looking for exactly but I hope it will lead you in the driection you should go.

The speedometer n my 1999 Sportster 1200 has stopped registering. How do I fix it?


This depends on whether it is an electronic speedo or a mechanical speedo.
The electric speedo has a sensor near the rear of the engine. Sometimes a very small piece of metal will get stuck on the end of the sensor and the speedo will stop working. Remove the bolt holding the sensor into the engine case and carefully pull the sensor out. Wipe it off and reinstall it. If the speedo still does not work, it's probably something in the speedo itself.

On a mechanical speedo, a cable from the front wheel drives the speedo. The cable or the speedo drive unit may be bad. To check the cable and drive, lift the bike off the ground, disconnect the cable from the rear of the speedo. Turn the front wheel and see if the cable is turning. If it is, it's probably alright. I'd still pull the cable out of it's housing and lubricate it with some grease. If the cable is turning, the cable and drive unit is alright. The speedo may be broken.
