SOURCE: Front end wobble

First thing to do is check front and rear tyre pressures. Next check for un-even wear of front tyre. Then check steering head bearings for correct tightness. Also check for bent front brake disks as one side bent can cause this. Check for worn wheel bearings also. Check engine mount rubbers as these can cause floating on bends if worn of loose. Basically check all chassis related items fully.

SOURCE: adjusting rear tire

is it rubbing all the time when you spin the wheel or is it as if the wheel is buckled? or could it be bearings in your wheel. (any side to side movement in it) if not then gotta be tire not seated correctly, you will see this though if you examine it along the rim on both sides, OR the shop put a tire on that was too wide, with either of these tire problems i suggest you go back to the shop that installed it, to re seat it you will have to remove the wheel and deflate tire fully, break the bead seal against the rim. then re-inflate carefully to seal it against the rim, give it a few bounses to help saeting correctly.

If you can get the front wheel off of the ground, spin the wheel and check the tire for the wobble, check the axle for looseness, and the rim to see if it is bent.

Can a bad front shock on a harley road king cause a vibration

Not really it can make the front end bounce up and down after going over a bumpy bit of road but a worn wheel bearing can make it vibrate or a badly seated tyre.

My husband was killed 3 weeks ago in a motorcycle accident. They are still working on the details of the accident report but say they have a skid of 100' and estimate his spead to be between 42 and 46...

I question how something with ABS leaves a skid mark? The brakes need to lock to skid. So I don't know if I would trust that data on the 07.

But investigators are supposed to know how to determin these things. That does not mean they don't make mistakes though.
Somthing you might look into, Was there two skid marks or one? Just rear brakes will easily leave a skid mark more than front brakes. So unless the brakes are a linked system, like some motorcycles have, then the rider is proportioning the front and rear bias. With more braking in the front you would need to be doing a higher speed for a longer skid. All the weight transfer will go towards the front and help the tire to grip well. More braking in the rear and there is less weight so less traction.

Was there two skid marks and of equal length? Typicaly the front tire is narrower than the rear so if there are two marks it should be easy to tell which was the front and which was the rear. Just one mark, was it front or rear?

Then you run into other variables. The condition of the tires. The traction of the tires (cold tires dont have as good traction as hot tires). The width or contact patch of the tires.

May try to drill the investigator and find out all the factors that he or she went by.

Squeaking front brakes, The pad thickness is good. How can I resolve this issue?

Had same pronlem w/2000 Road King. Noise would go away when front brakes gently applied. Remove front calipers, remove pads and clean throughly to remove any dirt, sand, road grime or rocks. Road test to see if problem goes away. If not, jack it up enought to get front tire off the floor. Rotate fron tire. Should rotate smoothly w/no hard spots. If it does not you have a piston sticking in one caliper. Dual discs if front? Don't know which side is dragging? Start cold, go for a 10-15 minute ride not using front brake and feel each rotor comparing diff in temperature. Careful they can be darned hot. Anyway the warmest one is probably sticking. H-D has a repack kit w/special lube for the pistons. Lotsa Luck.

What does it mean: FLHRS/FLHRSI Road King®

Alphabet Soup is what it means! F = Big Twin Frame, L=The 16" front tire and 41 or 39 mm forks, H = performance package(back in the day at least), R = Is for the Road King Model, S = Sport model Road King, I = Fuel Injected. Now quick note HD also likes to mix things up a bit to keep everyone on their toes, thus the Quest for Logic in Alphabet Soup.

Two things, first what are the tyre pressures for a 2001 Road King FLHRC and The fuel pump is whistling, high pitched, can an additive to the petrol fix this.

Ok, for "one-up riding", tire pressure is 30 psi in both tires. For "two-up riding", increase the rear pressure to 36 psi.

If the fuel pump is whistling, I doubt seriously if any gasoline additive is going to help but I don't guess it would hurt to try it.

Good Luck!

I have a 2005 road king with wire wheels. I just noticed a slight wobble in front tire. very much like when a tire tracks on pavement grooves. is this a road problem or tire/spoke problem?

If you can get the front wheel off of the ground, spin the wheel and check the tire for the wobble, check the axle for looseness, and the rim to see if it is bent.
