speedo problems

So before I left for college three weeks ago I was out riding and whatnot having a great time and everything was working how it was supposed to. I park it in the garage and drive my car to college. Fast forward three weeks to saturday. My dad and I are getting ready to change the oil in the bike since it was about that time and we are going to take it to our shop (my parents buildings they use to run the landscaping business out of). I give my dad some money to stop by O'Reilly's and I hop on my bike to go to our shop. I get on and the speedo and the odometer aren't working. Somehow over the course of sitting in the garage not being touched for three weeks something got ****ed up. I called the harley shop and he just wanted me to bring it in as opposed to telling me what it coud possibly be. The other small shops around town are harley/custom only places and didn't know **** about it. So I check the fuses and they are all good. I pushed all of the connectors together to make sure one hadn't come loose. I am completely confused as to what could have happened.

Is your speedo electronic, or cable drive? if its cable driven off the front wheel, check to see if your cable is connected. otherwise, look for fuses that may be blown or loose connections.

It is all electronic. With the odo, it shows the mileage and will switch from trip to total, just not count up.

well, my thought then, is figure out where the speedo pickup is, and look there too. it may just be a dirty connection or loose wire.

Maybe OSP can give some insight on the buells. The odo don't work most likely due to the speedo no working.

maybe you can check the speedo pick up... probably on the tranny.
