Speedo works intermittently

My speedometer works most of the time, but not always. Sometimes it seems to show my speed at about 1/2 of what it actually is and sometimes it doesn't work at all. The odometer is fine and works all the time.
My low fuel light also stays on 100% of the time and my fuel guage doesn't work at all. Does anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong?

Don't really know but some Liners have reported this and the cable connectors for the instruments were loose or dirty.

You migh talso try disconnecting the battery for a minute to reset the processor.

Speedometer Issues

I have had the same issues with my 2001 Midnight Star for a couple of years. I am going to check and clean my connections as soon as tonight. I will let you know if I have any success. I have ignored the problem but I now know this is an issue quite a few bikes have experienced. I thought it was just a fluke and I was the only one. Thank god for roadstar forums to help us out.
