Customer Question

My 1998 Sportster 1200 has a speedometer with a digital odometer. The odometer reading suddenly disappeared from the unit and I can't figure out why. I had very low mileage for a 98 and it would really be a big selling feature for the bike.

push the button on the speedo. that should toggle the mileage reading between total and trip.

if not, and based on what you posted, your display has failed.

if you replace the speedo, HD will NOT set the new unit to the mileage on the old one and will report to the DMV you have changed the speedo and the mileage is not correct.
