Angry Ironhorse speedo

Hello everyone, newb here...love the site, looking forward to the info/help here...anyways been doin alot of readin on the ironhorse speedo issues and thought i would get some opinions first before spending the money..
Had the 07 classic chopper for two weeks, rode it once..seen the speedo was acting up, giving eratic readings from 3 to 17 to four etc....tested the sensor...i believe is bad what do you guys think..speedos go out like this? the number on the sensor crosses to a harley sensor with a differant plug...should be able to swap it over pretty easy..AND since this is acting up i would assume the milage is inaccurate as well? (not sure if i want to here this) 45?? miles...thanks for the help

Yes they just use a Hd snsor. Most just have 3 wires and you can change the plug to match yours. Miles really dont hurt these bikes as long as they are well maintained

If you still have the original Roadmax tranny on the bike, I have an original speedo sensor that you might be interested in. I used the connector for a new sensor that I had to get for the Ultima trans that I just put in the bike so, you'd have to do a little soldering.

Had to. It was trashed. Shift forks and dogs were all scored. It would pop half way out of first when you let out the clutch. The Roadmax trannys were Korean Baker knock offs. Unfortunately, they're out of business and most parts are proprietary and not available. I replaced it with an Ultima RSD 6 speed. Not a super quality transmission but, I couldn't afford the 32-hundred needed for a Baker. Maybe down the road some day. Meanwhile, the Ultima is working fine.
