Speed Sensor

Q: After jump starting my wife 2011 Sportster The speed o or odometer do not work anymore but bike does run fine. Any suggestions?

A: May have a bad speed sensor. Locate your speed sensor. Remove it from the case and try cleaning it. Check the sensor’s harness and plugged connection. Check your speedo head for stored diagnostic trouble codes.

      What ever you do don’t jump your Bike with a Car or Truck.It will fry the Stator right there. Make sure the vertical is turned off if you do.

      I had a similar problem with my 2008 Electra Glide Standard. It ended up being a bad run/kill switch.

    how do you remove a speedo from a 1986 fxrs sport. speedo is pegged when going over 20mph. cable and drive are not broken. I think it’s in the speedo itself.
