Check for the speed sensor above the gear box Remove the allen screw on the speed sensor and clean the speed sensor with a rag, as there surely filing on it... Hope this help.

    I have a 2005 xl1200c doing the same thing and I have checked connections, fuses, put in a new speed sensor and now am at a lost. Every body says speed sensor but noone has an actual fix when its not the sensor. the code read "P0501" and its like i'm not getting power to the speed sensor.

How can i tell if i have a sportster hugger or just a sportster 883?


The difference between the 883 and the hugger were very small. the hugger came stock with buck horn handlebars and a shorter suspension. the differences are still noticeable today between a standard 883 and and 883 low.
1992:
  • Hugger model made even lower
  • Standardized hand controls
  • Production Information:
  • XLH 883 $4,499
  • XLH 883 'Hugger' $5,075
  • XLH 883 'Sportster Deluxe' $5,559
  • XLH 1,200 $6,400
also check your vin number if you have and 883 it should read 1hd4cam........ or for a hugger 1hd4cem....

I would check my Clutch before going any further. Sounds to me like it is not engaging or possibly have you checked the rear chain?

95 sporster speedometer


The timing of the plug change is probly chance Your speedo is a cable run from your front axle spacer between fork tube and Bering a spark plug or a wire could only put out the speedo light not affect the speed sensors caus there isn't one one a 95 sporty I only know cause I took off every thing on my chopper but headlamp tail lamp and starter switch and I had to make a custom spacer to take the place of my speed sensor slash Bering after I ditched my dash years ago on my 93 evo sporty
