Hi Jayyates651, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap. 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. Please visit the website below for morinformation and good luck.

SOURCE: Electrical Problem

It sounds like your ingition switch has failed. This is fairly common if you have a key fop that flaps in the wind. Pretty eash to switch them out. A HD switch is about $60.00 I got an after market that was $20.00.

Start tracing the wires and look for a loose one. Sportsters are known for the negative cables vibrating loose.

2006 sportster speedo has no power, does not light up, work, nothing. have voltage to connector in back of speedo.


Hi Tim, 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.

Speedometer and odometer has stoped working


Check on your transmission. The speedometer cable probably is bad or fell out.

Left turn signal an speedometer


There was a recall on the speedometers about 2004.
Some were defective and just quit working. H-D replaced them for free. Not sure about your year/model, but I would contact a dealer or area service rep to see if it falls under the guidelines.
