    I am having the same problem with my 1998 Heritage softail. It does it first thing when cold but is getting worse. It only does it when the bike is in motion & not when idling or reving up in neutral. This morning, I think I noticed that when I squeeze the clutch lever, it stops. I am going to double check this tonight on my way home. What does everyone think ? Any ideas ?

I had a similar situation with a Harley once that turned out to be a broken front motor mount.

I do not work on many Harleys, but I was told that it was a fairly common problem with that model.

Maybe that will help, maybe it wont.

Can sombody please help I have a strange sound in my 2007 r1 motor if bike is cold the sound is not there if you floored it the sound is gone but as soon you slacking down the sound is gone as long as


Describe the sound; a low clunk, higher pitched tap. Does it increase with engine rpm? Noise that is present on deceleration is often in your valve train, cam chains particularly. Noises that getter louder as the bike gets hotter can mean the type and viscosity of the oil is too "thin". Write back some more symptoms. Good luck, it's an awesome bike

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

2007 FLHTCU Transmission Noisy 5th gear


Wow, valves and other related engine noises don't care what gear you are in, they still make the noise. However your motor may be "lugging" in 5th gear which can cause a symptom of an engine related issue.
You may have an issue with the actual gearbox its self.
There is a primary drive chain that may be worn which will cause excessive noise in top gear because it is putting the greatest load on the engine. This is what connects the engine to the transmission. I think there is a tensioner for your model that will allow you to adjust the free play in the primary drive chain. If not I strongly recommend replacement because this will cause major damage if it breaks.
