Speedometers do go bad, however, you should check the speedo sensor first. The speedo sensor should be located on the top right hand side of the tranmission. remove the sensor from the transmission, clean and reinstall. You should also be able to bring up the trouble codes on this speedometer which will help to diagnose the problem. If it turns out that the speedometer itself is bad, you will most likely have to go to the dealer to purchase a replacement.

    Flht models have speedo cable all the way to 2000. So it would be a cable or drive on the front wheel.

could be the VSS - vehicle speed sensor .
Speedometer and Odometer
The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a gear driven permanent magnet generator. The vehicle transaxle houses the VSS. The VSS generates a sine wave output with a frequency proportional to the vehicle speed.
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) converts the CKT 389 signal to an output that switches to ground at a frequency of 4000 pulses per mile. The CKT 389 signal drives the speedometer and the odometer. Various other vehicle components use the CKT 389 signal. Refer to Engine Controls.

Speedometer quit working on Honad 1997 accord - mileage or trip not working either - is there a fuse to check

In all probability the speedometer wire has become unhooked at the transmission / transaxle end. It is just a sensor held down with 3 bolts, and the wire plugs into it. If not the case, either the wire broke somewhere along the line, or in worst case, it became unhooked at the speedometer end, (almost impossible).

You must have a sensor out somewhere. This sensor must be the same one controlling your speedometer and also helping your tranny shift properly.
