SOURCE: speedo stopped working and an amber light came on check eng lamp

You don't say what year your bike is, but I know a lot of guys with newer sporsters 06 and up have had similar complaints. The problem usually goes away once every thing drys out. You might want to try putting a little dialitic grease on the fuses and buses.

SOURCE: bike wont go into gear, just had a new clutch put

With bike not running, rock the bike backwards and forwards and shift through all the gears. If it shifts all the way to fifth gear and back down, then the problem is not in the transmission. If you can't shift the transmission into any gear with the bike not running, just rocking it backwards and forwards, then you've got a problem with the transmission or the shift lever mechanism.

If it does shift but you still can't get it into gear something is strange. I've seen a clutch that the plates were locked together from sitting up, but it still would shift into gear. Of course, when it did shift into first gear, the bike would lurch forward and kill the engine. In this case, we had to disassemble the clutch pack and free the plates up. If you've had a new clutch put in the bike, it could simply need an adjustment. But, usually a new clutch will have a tendency to wear in and start to slip rather than drag. When a clutch causes the bike to lurch when put into gear or become difficult to find neutral with the engine running, it's dragging. I'd check the entire clutch adjustment to start with.

Slide the rubber boot on the clutch cable up, break the lock nut loose and turn the adjuster to make the cable as short as possible. Take the derby cover off the primary to gain access to the clutch release adjuster bolt. Break the large locknut loose, adjust the center bolt inward until you feel resistance. Back the screw back out and back in until you feel resistance again several times. You want to just take the slack out of the adjustment, not start to open the clutch up. Once you've turned the bolt in and feel the resistance, back the bolt back out 1/2 to 1 complete turn. Hold the bolt in this position and lock the lock nut again. Now, adjust the clutch cable back out until you get a freeplay of about an 1/8 inch at the lever. The clutch should be adjusted well enough to release at this point. If it doesn't, the clutch plates are probably stuck.

If the clutch plates are stuck, rock the bike back and forth and shift the bike into fourth or fifth gear. Now, while holding the clutch lever in, push the bike backwards and forwards far enough to "bump" the clutch. This may break the bond between the plates and free it up. If not, you'll have to disassemble the clutch in order to free it up. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 2005 Ultra Classic ,Speedo Cuts Out Which In Turn

I believe the turn sigs, speedo and cruise are all controlled in part at least by a module under the fairing. It may need replacement or it could just be a loose wire. Sounds more like a loose wire plug or bundle, if intermittent.

The park lights stays on after swtching off the bike and drains the battery, 2007 cvo ultra classic


Try pulling the lighting 15 amp fuse (not the headlamp 15 amp fuse) and see what happens. I take it the headlights are working properly. If the other lights go off when you pull the lighting fuse a short to power is indicated and your diagnosis will be narrowed but you will still have a process to go through to trace this problem down.

Speedometer stoped working and turn signals won't


Your turn signals will not shut off automatically if the speedometer is not working. As for why the speedo is not working, I'm afraid I can't help you with that as I know nothing about them but I'd check the speedometer sending unit in the transmission first. It's supposed to generate a pulse for the speedometer. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer work on and some Evolution powered bikes. I do not work on the digital electronics nor fuel injected bikes. I'm sorry I can't help you more.

Good Luck

2000 Roadking my speedo works when it wants,and when my speedo doesn't work,my self canceling turn signals don't self cancel. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


The problem is with the speedo. The speedo has a "lean switch" that works in conjunction with the turn signal canceller. If the bike does not detect a "lean", the TSC will not cancel the turn signals Resolve the speedo problem and the turn signal problem will go away. As for what's causing the speedo problem, I have no idea other than maybe a loose connection. I've read a LOT of problems with the speedo not working on this forum but since I don't work the bikes built in 2000 and later, I'm afraid I have no experience with the problem and therefore cannot offer any advice.

Good Luck
Steve

I have a 1990 flt tour glide classic and its not charging correctly, the gauge is under 12 volts unless you rev the engine and the speedo reads too slow and when you stop it gradually goes to 10mph, its...


Let's start by taking the battery out and taking it to an automotive part store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. They'll usually do this for no charge. If the battery test good, put it back in the bike and make sure it's charged up fully.

Now, connect a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to the battery. Red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. Put the meter function knob on DC Volts, 20 volt or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should be reading 14.5-14.8 volts across the battery. If not, check the output of your alternator.

Unplug the regulator down at the cases just to the left side of your oil filter. Look down into the connector and you'll see two pins. Put your meter's function knob in AC Volts, 50 volt range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch one lead of your meter (either lead) to one pin and the other lead to the other pin. You should be reading thirty volts or more.

If not, you probably need to replace the stator in your alternator, If you read 30 volts or more, replace your regulator.

Now, as to whether or not this will correct your speedo problem, I have absolutely no idea.

Good Luck

I have a ultra classic and the speedo, tach, horn


Hi Pstika, 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 it still doesn"t fix your problem try replacing your ignition relay. Good luck and have nice day.
