My speedo light still goes on and off since having the VR changed so I need to take it back in and get that looked at.
bbwilli, Did you ever get the problem fixed and if yes, what was the problem as I am having the exact problem and the dealer has no idea.

I know you didn't ask me. But when I had that problem where my speedometer wasn't working and all might light was off. They replaced the bcm. My bcm had a hair line crack on the backside from rattle around loose. After they fix it I had 2 years trouble free until I traded in my slim. They replaced the bcm and bracket that holds it in place.

Exclamation Mine Too...

I'm having this problem right now, when driving in 6th gear at 65 mph, it stays on steady red until I drop the speed down then it goes off.

Mine has only 225 original miles on it, (2016 Fat Bob).

WTF is going on with this issue for Harley?

Red light going on and off means it is throwing codes - more than likely.

Most likely you are having a bulb failure, either headlight or tail/brake light.
