    Have 05 sportster custom, speedometer does not work at all. No lights, nothing. There is power and ground but cannot get anything to work. Bike only has 200 miles, and wanted to know if anyone has ever run into anything similar? Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like it could be the sensor pickup on the transmission but with no lights, it does sound like a bad speedo.

    Take a look at this post and see what you can find on the pickup.There's even a test proceedure posted in the link.
