Question about Motorcycles
When I put on the throttle on my 2001 Fatboy hd my speedometer drops to 0 @
Hi, David and the usual suspects are:
1. Contaminated or faulty speed sensor.
2. Faulty turn signal module.
3. Corroded, broken or loose connector pins/sockets in the wire harness between the speedometer and the ECM or TSSM and the sensor.
4. The speedometer unit has failed.
5. Speedometer instrument fuse has blown.

check your brain bro. I mean your bikes brain. Its right under your ****. hmm. anyhoo the connections get funky and those after market pipes you had to have make it vibrate and then the connections don't connect. quit throwing parts at it and look at what you got. throttle input equals erratic behaviour. vibrations shouldn't affect the components you changed but they will wreak havoc on the connections inbetween

Two questions: Is your odometer working? If not then it's probably a broken gear by the stepper motor that Emissionwiz mentioned. Is your ABS and/or TRACS light on intermittently or constantly. If so that is a common sign your ABS control module has gone or is going bad. This usually happens before the speedometer starts acting up. Either one of these will start intermittently and finally end up with the speedometer not functioning at all, and both are pretty common failures with this model.

If you try to ride the bike or rev the engine up while it's cold, this is normal. Most engines will do this because the mixture is lean for a cold engine. When you start the engine, allow the engine to warm until it goes into the slower idle speed.
