SOURCE: bad vibrating when braking or accelerating on a 96 fxdwg

Check the front brake pads and discs. The pads for any stones in them and the discs for any warping.

2002 Vstar 1100 is bottoming out with passenger


Replace the spring with a heavier duty should do the job.
Have you tried adjustments in the spring load to stiffen it up.
The rear shock on your Yamaha V-Star 1100 motorcycle assures that the rear wheel is always in contact with the ground and makes your ride much more comfortable by absorbing road vibration and shock while you ride.

But your shock needs to be adjusted for different riding styles, so depending on whether you ride fast or cruise slowly and how quickly you take turns, you may want to adjust the shock to get the most out of your ride.

1

Remove the passenger seat by loosening and removing the rear passenger seat mounting bolt with a socket wrench.
With the passenger seat removed, you should see two larger rider's seat mounting bolts.
Remove these bolts and pull the rider's seat off of the bike to expose the internals of the motorcycle. 2

Detach the quick-release clips of the ignitor unit found just beneath the seat using a screwdriver. Pull the ignitor unit up and to the right of the bike to move it out of your way.

Remove the mudguard quick-release clips in the same fashion, then pull the mudguard out of the bike to expose the rear shock adjuster. 3

Look for the small numbers on the rear shock adjuster.
On most 2002 V-Stars you should see the numbers 1 to 9 printed on the shock adjuster.

These numbers give you an idea of the current setting of the shock.
The higher the number, the stiffer the adjustment. 4

Loosen the shock by turning the shock adjuster counterclockwise to a smaller number using a spanner wrench.

This makes the shock softer and more forgiving when riding over bumps and uneven pavement, but will feel slower in turns and accelerations.

Tighten the shock by turning it clockwise to a higher number.
This makes the shock stiffer, increasing road response in turns and giving you a better feel of road conditions at the expense of comfort. 5

Replace the mudguard, ignitor unit, rider's seat and mounting bolts, and the passenger seat and mounting bolts.

Take your bike for a ride to feel the difference a turn of the shock adjuster makes.

I replaced front motor mount on my 97 wideglide it vibrates worse now. it feels like electricity going through your feet when riding it. anyone got any solutions for this problem


Make sure it is not upside down and the correct H-D NOT AFTERMARKET mount, make sure it is installed properly as per the service manual and that the bolts are the correct ones and properly torqued. You may have to go through the alignment procedure and loosen all mounting fasteners and then retighten all etc.. Follow the service manual procedures to a t and you should be okay.

I have a bad vibration on my 94 fxdlonly6 when i am slowing down or at a certain rpm but it is totally fine at a steadypace or when accelerating


Ok, the Dyna series bikes have rubber mounted engines but the mounts have a tendency to only absorb the higher frequency vibrations. When the engine is idling or running at RPM's lower than about 2000, you can feel the engine vibrations. I have a 1994 FXDWG and it does the same thing. This is normal for all engines with rubber motor mounts. However, since the bike has quite a number of years on it, it would be a good idea to check the mounts and the stabilizers to see if they might need replacement.

Good Luck

2005 dyna wide glide...fuel injected...have engine vibration during acceleration...bike is smooth free wheeling at 70 mph...vibration returns with engine speed...need help


I'd check the motor mounts. The front mount is easy to get to but the rear isn't quite so easy. I'd check the front mount and the top engine stabilzer.

I assume that you've owned this bike long enough to know how it should feel. The Dyna series has rubber engine mounts. They do a very good job of dampening engine vibration once the engine gets up in it's rpm range. When the engine is idling, the vibrations can be felt then. When accelerating, you can feel some vibration but it should be bad.

Check your engine mounts and your primary chain adjustment. If it's something to do with the fuel system, I'm afraid that a dealer is going to have to check that for you. Good Luck!

My Motorcycle fell over!


Chances are the forks are just a bit out of alignment from the fall. Put the bike on the center stand with the front wheel pointing perfectly straight ahead. Are the handlebars looking like they are turning a bit to the left or right? If so, just go to the front of the bike and straddle the front wheel while facing the rear of the bike. Hold the wheel firmly with your legs and firmly twist the bars back to a straight position. Re-check the alignment and re-adjust as needed. Now go ride and check it out.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Fxdwg wobbles at 75+mph


I was reading about a fix for this in IronWorks magazine just recently. I thinking January or February issue. If I remember right I think they actually said it is a kit with a stabilizer. I'll see if I can find the right one and follow up. they post the past issues on their website but I think you have to subscribe to the magazine to access the website. I love the magazine!! I have gotten lots of ideas and helpful information for my old shovelhead.

Floor boards on Wide Glide


I have floorboards on my 02 WG - both rider and passenger. The passenger boards are HD. The rider boards are these: (about half way down the page - Adjustable Floorboard Kit - part number is CS190505) http://www.cas4.com/Forward-Controls...oorboards.html Easy install - remove the footpeg, bolt the floorboards in place. I'll see if I can find some good pics of my bike with the floorboards installed.

Dyna Wide Glide Rear Tire


i called a place ( hogpro.com) about wheels for my 07 fxdwg and talked to the guy there. he said a 180 will fit with no problems and a 200 will fit in the swingarm and fender, you just have to center the wheel and deal with the turn signal brackets etc. Does anyone know where i can get a set of rear struts that are just plain with no recess for the turn signals that will bolt on to the stock bike? I am gonna try the 200/55-18 this winter on a 18x 5.5" wheel.
