picked up the bike from dlr after 24km service

speedo dies on the highway in stop & go traffic, bike stalls after downshifting at the end of the off ramp.

all on the way home.

started the hardest it ever has on the second attempt, speedo never came back but was 5 mins from home at that point.

if you bounce the throttle with the clutch pulled in as you decel after some gears, the bike has 'coughed' once in a while, but today it just went dead as the revs fell.

any ideas? apparently the wrenches i pay for may not have a clue...

Transmission speed sensor, you described the exact symptoms.

I agree. Just fixed my buddy's softail. Speed sensor guaranteed. It's located on the right side of the bike near the starter.

@gree:

Mine did the same thing in Florida. You can take the thing out and clean it, for a quick fix, sometimes. You might as well plan on replacing it, it's not that hard to do...
