SOURCE: how do i change speed sensor on my harley 1200

I am pretty certain the engine on your bike is the same as is on my Buell Cyclone M2.
The sensor is located at the top of the gearbox, (off side) and is fixed with a single bolt. Remove the bolt and lift the sensor out.
When you replace it, leave some slack in the cable to avoid the cable breaking again. It is plugged in to the main loom, just follow the wire.
Hope this helps and ride safe.

SOURCE: Where are the two ends

Well, I'm not sure I understand this question but I'll try. The speed sensor itself is mounted on the right side of the transmission case, just below the starter motor. The other end is connected to the speedometer on the backside. Just follow the wires up to the speedo and take the plate of the backside of the speedo.

Good Luck
Steve

Where is the speed sensor on a 2001 fatboy


Hi Anonymous, 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.
