Adjust the clutch. If this doesn't work, you will need to take it to a dealer to get it looked at.

Harleys are known for their shaking but when they get really bad I usually start looking for broken motor mounts. I suspect you either have a lose one or broken. The rubber wears out and then they get obnoxious.

SOURCE: valve noise 2006 road king
Hello redevil67...This is normal for the HD engine, it going to have valve train, top end noise at some point, some as early as 2000 miles. If you take it to the dealer they will try to sell you on worn tappets...key word here SELL..I've seen this many times, dealer replaces componets, 2000 miles later the noise returns.
These are hydraulic valves and as you probably know they operate at zero lash. Personaly, i feel that the problem is that the cams are not hardened properly or machined incorrectly.. When the leading edge of the cam lobes wear to a strange profile it tends to snap the lifter up in the lifter bore. This causes the rest of the valve train to rattle. You hear the noise on top but the culprit makin it, is the cams..Many chose to go with an aftermarket cam, such as an andrews...Another suggestion, is to switch oils. Don't know what you are useing now, but i'm not a fan of dino oil. As the temperature builds the more an oil is stressed. Lucas full synthetic 20w-50 or Mobil1 15w-50 are both excellent for anti-wear and long term protection.
I hope this helps, please rate me a fixya and good luck with your bike.

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.

Start with the simpliest and most likely things first. Check the spark plug wires and make sure they're on tight. If that's not it check where they plug into the coil and loose wires on the coil. How long has it been since you had new spark plugs? May be time for a new set. Check and clean or replace the air filter element. Check the vent in the fuel cap. Loosen the cap a bit and ride the bike. If the skipping stops, tighten the cap back down and see if the skip comes back. If it does, replace the cap.
If you don't find anything here, since your bike is fuel injected, you'll probably have to take it back to the dealer.
