    Hi there,
    I have a 2000 road king and the speedometer, odometer and turn signal canceler all went out at the same time. What do I need to look at? The turn signals do work but they don't cancell. WHen I start the bike, I can see the speedometer needle move a little bit.

    That's an electronic pickup problem. (VSS) Vehicle speed sensor.:s Very common, it handles all the chores that you mention in your post that went out. Cleaning the pickup is temporary, replacing it is the way to go at about $50 for the part. Easy installation.

    Thanks Glider...that sounds like it exactly. I've gone about 2 years with no steedometer so I figure I should fix it at some point.

    The choice of a good synthetic gear lube in the transmission really does minimize this problem to almost non existent.

    Spectro platinum or redline shockproof heavy are both good gear lubes.
