There is a loud metallic rattle/clacking noise coming from my exhaust after the bikes engine is hot, basically after riding for 15-30 mins when I crack the throttle at a complete stop in gear or in...


Sounds like the baffle is loose inside the muffler and when it heats up and expands you get movement. I would remove muffler when its cool and try to shake it and inspect it closer. May need a new muffler.

2005 HD Ultra vibration at idle


Hi Vernon, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck

I replaced the front brake pads on my 1999 fatboy i tightened both caliper bolts but when i ride i can hear a slight rattling sound coming from the caliper. please help. ...


Did the original pads have anti rattle springs attached to them? If they did, you should have transferred them onto the new pads. The rattling isn't dangerous by any means, but it can be annoying.

Shake from left to right at high speeds.


Check for steering head bearing problems. But most likely you have a cruiser that is not supposed to be driven at high speeds and this is normal. Sport bikes use a steering dampner to solve that problem.

Check the engine mounts to the frame. these are isolated by rubber and you may have broken one gettin' on it at the light.

Steering shakes very bad,from 55mph down to 20mph. slowing down


Yes the leak is causing uneven pressure on the front of the bike! The pressure in the left fork is greater then the right fork and will cause shaking of the front end!
Replacing seals and oil to the right fork will fix the shaking!
Hope this helps!

Engine vibration at 1800-rpm and up 1340 evo 1994 dyna.


Hi .... This may sound daft but have you recently changed or had the exhaust off ? Have a look at the silencer/muffler rear mounts, difficult to explain but they should be in a 'neutral' position, not fully pushed in. Maybe the vibes are coming straight along the pipes from the engine and through the footpegs.
Let me know how you get on.

07 Buell 12Ss shaking


not just a vibration but more of a shake at 1500 to 1700 rpm. Is this just life with a Buell or should it be checked out?These bikes are known to shake alot at idle. Check if your tires properly balanced.,,
