Hi, Wilson4527 the vast majority of speedometer issues is caused by the speed sensor and or the wiring. On Sportsters the sensor is located on top of the engine case behind the rear cylinder, on big twins it's located on the right side of the transmission case between the starter end cap and the transmission top cover. Remove the bolt/screw that secures the sensor and lift the sensor out of the case. Inspect it for damage and contamination, if there appears to be no damage wipe the end of the sensor clean and reinstall, you can go for a short quick test ride to see if the speedo is working. If the issue still exists grab your test light and unplug the harness connector from the sensor, check for power (red wire) and ground (black wire) continuity coming from the speedo, there is also the connector that plugs into the speedometer, also look for corroded, broken or loose pin/sockets. If everything checks out OK then replace the speed sensor.

Good luck and have a nice day. Thread 2004 Firebolt speed sensor location

SOURCE: Occasional abnormal Engine banging and clicking!

Hmm, not much to go on...I don't know that engine well, but suggest a loose primary chain may give these symptoms...clicking when it hits the screw bosses at idle and some backlash when slowing down to lights. A long shot could be poor oil supply to your hydraulic tappets causing the clicking and banging as they go metal-to metal. Check oil pump and increase idle speed to 1100-1200rpm to get some oil pumping. Good Luck

SOURCE: How oil goes in the primary for 03 Buell firebolt

Stand the bike upright (use a swingarm stand or lean against a wall), then poor one quart of oil (I recommend Harley Formula+) into either of the windows on the primary cover. The oil should be just covering the bottom of the gear visible in the larger window.

Speedometer and mileage are not turning but rpms gauge works..can it be the cable or did previous owner just unplug something to stop the mileage rollover?


There is no cable on your bike - your speed sensor went bad - it is located in the engine case just behind the front belt pulley.
