SOURCE: my 2006 Harley road king shakes alot when standing

Shaking and vibration is normal for most Harleys, it's caused by the angle of the twins, it's normal for mostly all Harley motorcycles.

SOURCE: will 1996 road king pipes fit a 1993 ulta classic

no they wont due to the diffrence in the end of the pipe. 95 and earlier have a flanged end where 96 and later do not have that flange. if you cut the flange off then they will fit.

SOURCE: 2005 FLHRS - FLHRSI Road King Custom: did the 05 road king classic come with or could be...

You could have the dealership install the 103 CI kit if you like but no it didnt come from the factory with that engine in it already, only the CVO bikes such as the FLHRSE and FLHRSEI came with the 103 CI motor installed from the factory.

No it won't hurt anything as long as your pipes are long enough. If they're way too short, you'll burn your exhaust valves up. As long as the pipes reach at least the front of the rear wheel, you should be fine running it straight piped. It'll make her sound good too. You'll be pleased with the sound change

SOURCE: 2009 triumph rocket 3 classic

not sure here as never changed them i just fit a set of pipes from motor auto factor then remove them for the annual inspection which i would advise you to do but you have to be carefull here as the police will pull you up and do a roadside check if the bike sounds too noisy then they will impound the bike till a fine is paid and then it can only be released to a authorised dealer for repair ,but this is spain plus the tow truck charges on top of the fine .I bought two pipes for my 1981 kawasaki 750 for 100 euros each and welded them on but the pipes were italian made and came with a certificate of homoglonation to present when i take the bike for its annual inspection ,and from what i remember they were welded on the other end as well as i had to cut a bit off so they fitted the wider down pipe of my bike.You have to be so carefull nowdays in any country as they are politically correct and noise polution is something a local traffic cop can make his quota of nicks up to keep the boss happy .

Gas gauge popped out of tank. does not want to stay in very well. how is it held in tank? 2005 road king

this cap should press in straight down, if it isn't staying the "hooks" may not be properly set-up
NEVER twist it as this will cause damage to the wiring to your gas gauge

I changed the mufflers on my 2006 Road King from stock to Rush mufflers with 2" baffles. I notice that I now have tranny fluid coming from the over flow hose. Difference in back pressure?

The exhaust back pressure won't affect the transmission oil or pressure.
I think it needs investigating and maybe there will be a simple answer.

I have an 05 HD Road King. It just started to to spit a small amount of oil from around the air filter area. Could a dirty air filter be the cause. Thanks, Jim

No, your engine crankcase ventilation is routed into the air filter. This is required by the EPA so as to route any oil smoke generated inside the engine is run through the engine and burned. Although there are oil baffles in the ventilation system, some oil does accumilate in the air filter. Periiodic cleaning is required. It should not be an excessive amount such as oil pouring out of your filter after a short ride.

I am very pleased with my modifications on my Road King Classic, and to tell you the truth, I have "invested" the months, almost the years, in order to get perfect combination (from my point of view). So, here is my recommendation: 1. Stock pipes 2. Wild Pig Pipes/mufflers/slip ons (1 3/4" baffles - not too loud, 2" baffles - quite loud) 3. Screamin' Eagle Stage One Kit (read as: more air) 4. DFO (Digital Fuel Optimizer) to adjust everything, to "help" all new parts to work in harmony. Adjustment will be done via producer's web site, in co-operation with very kind people from Dobeck Performance Forum. Also, I have to emphasize that I did everything taking into account affordable prices. Hope this helps.
