I have a 2001 HD Sportster 1200. I bought this bike 2 weeks ago. The previous owner did some up grades (9.5" pullback risers, straight drag handlebar, etc). After all this work, he didn't want to put the stock speedo back on. Idon't blame him. I bought a new mini speedo from J+P cycles. The new speedo has 2 sets of wires coming out of the back of it(red,black and green) and I can only find one plug under the seat not plugged into anything. The wires one the plug are red, black and white. So, I'm not quite sure how to wire the ******!

Either you have a dead short in your wireing or your battery is not charging fully. Use a volt meter your battery will have 12 volts start the bike and it should read 13 plus then take it up to 2000 rpm above idle anyway it should read 14 plus. If you dont have these numbers then you have a stator or regulator problem or both. You may be geting a slight charge when running but not enough to keep the battery peaked out.
The cable will attatch to the back of the speedo, and attatch at the front wheel. You should have a speedo spacer installed on the left side of the rim ( between the tire and the front left fork leg ) . It screws into the spacer. then there is a little locking set screw to hold the cable from unscrewing itself.
It's quite a process to remove a starter on a sportster. I changed one for my friend on his 03 sportster. You have to take alot of stuff off to get to the bolts that hold it on. Can I suggest getting a service manual for the bike. Trust me it's worth its weight in gold. I've done alot of work on my sportster and my friends sportster and would never attempt anything without the book. As far as the starter, From what I remember, I had to remove the exhaust pipes then the primary cover, and I'm sure there were more parts, but you need to know what gaskets you will need to replace. Good Luck. And go get the book. I got mine at Barnes and Noble. and my friend got his at the Harley dealer. Have fun.
Turns out the crank sensor needed to be replaced again (second time in 8 weeks or so!). In the last week Harley has sent out a "improved" crank sensor that does not have the issues of the original. Therefore if you replace it once you shouldn't have to do it again and again. Bike runs great now. We will see - though - my local service manager promises it will stay that way.
Disconnect the battery positive cable and yank straight up on it. If it seperates in two see a dealer. This was a recall so it will be repaired for free - no time limit, you don't have to be the original owner. If not, check the wire from the starter solenoid to the ignition switch. Also check the heavy ground cable from the battery to the frame, and the 10mm battery connections.
