I know a lot of guys switch to the metzler and the michlens and the do get longer wear, but you give up some handling.

Check your lower and upper control arm ball joints as well as the tie rod ends. Also make sure your wheel lugs are tight. Also make sure front hubs are in the free position when operating on the street. If the Jeep has a straight axel, check the king pin bushings at the steering knuckles.

2007 Harley Road King - Front end feels like I'm riding on grooved pavement. Already tried changing the front tire. That didn't help. Any other suggestions?


depends on the road surface, and even the under laying base material, you can try adjusting the air pressure to see if that helps, I got a different tread than my original dunlop tire came with on mine and it helped but very little and not worth the price of buying a new tire

Squeaking front brakes, The pad thickness is good. How can I resolve this issue?


Had same pronlem w/2000 Road King. Noise would go away when front brakes gently applied. Remove front calipers, remove pads and clean throughly to remove any dirt, sand, road grime or rocks. Road test to see if problem goes away. If not, jack it up enought to get front tire off the floor. Rotate fron tire. Should rotate smoothly w/no hard spots. If it does not you have a piston sticking in one caliper. Dual discs if front? Don't know which side is dragging? Start cold, go for a 10-15 minute ride not using front brake and feel each rotor comparing diff in temperature. Careful they can be darned hot. Anyway the warmest one is probably sticking. H-D has a repack kit w/special lube for the pistons. Lotsa Luck.

Two things, first what are the tyre pressures for a 2001 Road King FLHRC and The fuel pump is whistling, high pitched, can an additive to the petrol fix this.


Ok, for "one-up riding", tire pressure is 30 psi in both tires. For "two-up riding", increase the rear pressure to 36 psi.

If the fuel pump is whistling, I doubt seriously if any gasoline additive is going to help but I don't guess it would hurt to try it.

Good Luck!

Tire Replacement


ME880 is the Metzler you're looking for. It comes in black, and wide white wall. I have it for my back tire. Haven't worn out my front enough to get a match on the front yet, but I'm working on it! They are a huge improvement over the dunlops
