Expert:  Steve replied 29 days ago.

remove the dash and check the connections on the back of the speedo.

- you may have a loose connection. (at the speedo OR the ignition switch)

- you may have broken or pinched wires on the power (W/O) or ground (BK).

- you may have wiring issues in the harness.

- you may have an intermittent problem inside the speedo itself. you can remove the speedo and take it into a HD dealership for a bench test.

let me know if you need more help.
