Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king

1 Answer

I hear a small rattle sound when i ride my 2007 harley softail.

It sounds like a ''chain'' is in the gas tank ?!

Like a small ''necklace'' is vibrating inside. the dealer is ''fed-up'' and cannot find the problem (or even imitate it)

Is there any diagram for this area ( or the whole bike,) available which i can study ?

thanks !.....it's a softail '07

Dont know if you can find that info on line, but for about $60.00 you can get a service manual for your model at the dealer.

Its worth it and will save you a ton of $$$$$ over the years

2006 softail deuce fxstdi bike starts good stays on for a minute then turns off. sounds good when its on then chokes off


This issue could be a bad fuel line at the fuel pump. To check, open the gas cap and listen inside the tank while the ignition key is on to see if you can 1. hear the fuel pump running, 2. hear if the pump is spraying fuel inside the tank. You should hear the pump start up and then pump up to pressure and shut off. If it keeps running, the fuel line inside that tank is probably broken or disconnected. Also, be sure that the hose attatched to the tank,(on the outside, that goes to the injector body), is securly attatched to the tank.

Ocassionally rattling on start up and durring throttle release


It sounds to me like the primary chain may be rattling. When you start the bike, the engine is cold and the chain is at it's loosest. As you ride, it tightens up as the engine cases heat up and expand. But, when you let off on the throttle, the slack in the chain goes to the top run. This causes the chain to "lift" off the small engine sprocket. If it is loose enough, it will hit the top of the inner primary housing on the inside. Check the tension of the primary chain. It should be 3/4" to 7/8" when the engine is cold.

I'm sorry that this is about the best I can do since I'm not in a position to hear the noise for myself. It's a "best guess" check this situation. I ride a 1994 FXDWG and I love it. Just turned over 30K, no major repairs.

Good Luck
Steve

Pretty hard to offer suggestion with so little info.

If chain drive could be chains too loose.

Check oil level.

Get M/C shop to check......alot of good money at stake there.

At cruising speeds above 50 mph on my 92 harley, i hear a rattling sound in the engine, like a hot air corn popper where the kerrnels are bouncing off the side walls of the popper.


Sounds like detonation ( aka engine knock ), Switch to premium gas. If the knocking continues after the first tank of premium then go to the dealer and ask for spark plugs one heat range colder than the stock plug for your bike. This should fix the problem.
I hope you can rate this solution as a 'FixYa'.
