Speedometer bouncing up and down

2002 V-Star 1100 custom speedometer started bouncing down to 0 and back up, then the odometer cut out and back on. Looked at some threads on the subject which suggested fuses, bad ground or wires worn and shorting out. In my case, the battery connection screws had come loose over time, making a sporadic bad connection. Tightening screws solved the problem.
