    I'm not going to post this as a solution, cause vibration can be cause by so much, Id really have to see the bike...some things to check.

    Crack in the frame, loose engine mount, out of tune, drive train is out of alignment....or almost any internal engine problem

Excessive vibration on my Dyna


17 years is a long time for engine rubbers on a v twin. But if the vibration is only in the handlebars, you might want to fit some heavier handlebar end weights. They are there to absorb vibration(they act as dampers.) But, if the vibration is in the engine, it may be worth checking the ignition timing. On a Big V the ignition only needs to be out by a small amount to set up a noticeable vibration.

I have a 2003 HD Heritage EFI (12k miles)... I have noticed when the engine is idling it sounds fine. When I am at highway speed (65MPH & 5th gear) I have noticed a loud intermitent clatter. at low...


Sounds like valve clatter, a common issue. We chased the same noise, with HD installing new push rods, adjustable rods and then they said it is a Harley. Not a real answer. This noise ruines the ride as it grabs your mind and focuses you on the noise.We tried different rod extensions within the lifter adjustment range, same deal. We chased for about 1 1/2 years, trying to not void warranty.

The only long term solution was to go to aftermarket (velvet touch) lifters and lifter blocks. Now we NEVER hear the issue.

My 2009 Dyna Super Glide Custom motorcycle has had an unusual amount of vibration overall when under way while accelerating or deaccelerating through 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears. It seems to me to be either...


You can check for a loose or broken motor mount but you need to consider how the rubber mounts work. The mounts absorb high frequency vibrations. Low frequency vibrations will be felt throughout the machine.

On most Dyna's, the bike vibrates when idling. When accelerating though the gears (and decelerating back down) if the engine rpm's gets below about 2000 rpm's, you'll feel the vibration. Once above this level, the bike smooths out due to the change in frequency of the vibrations. I have owned a '94 FXDWG since new and this is my experience with the bike.

However, if the vibration is very bad, you may need to have it looked at by a technician. You'll have to determine that for yourself.

When pushing down on the gas in 3rd 4th and 5th gear has a small


Valves need adjusting and/or oil in the engine

With such limited information i can almost put my thumb on it being the valves - they are compressed using special tools, aka - leave it to the pros and save yourself a headache!

(In 1rst and 2nd the engine rpm is low, in 4th and 5th it is much higher making the knock more noticeable)

Oil leak at inner primary


Most inner primary leaks come from the alternator o-ring the best thing to do is put on a new one and put clear silicone on the primary and the engine case.

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.

Vibration at 2900 RPM


I have the same problem with my Roadking except it wasnt dropped. I did a full alignment of rear tire to engine, aligned the rear tire to front tire, aligned the engine and replaced the front motor mount. Nobody seems to have an answer, that I've talked to anyway. If you find a cure let me know, If I find one I'll let you know.
