2005 lowrider vibration problem numb hands.
Harley shop tells me its a dyna and they vibrate. vibration started at about 3000 klms and now at 5000 klms its absolutly pathetic (numb hand numb feet. To the point now its not worth even going for a short ride,.
Harley service said the checked motor mounts and compression test and all is good.
looks to me like the front mount moves about 1/4 inch

Any input would be great!!!

Bring it over let me ride her for a few years and I'll fixit for a small fee.  That front mount may be worn enough to cause this. May be a timing thing, or a vacuume leak at one head, get some wd 40 and spray on the manifold when she is running, rev it up and spray it, if you have some leak this will make it show up. Then clean her up, get that junk off my engine before you bring it over.

My 2005 electra glide shaking like crazy , when I am driving I can feel my foot vibrating, is this normal or not


First, you must determine whether the vibration is being caused by the engne or something else. When you feel the vibration, pull the clutch in and allow the engine to slow down. Does the vibration go away? If not, this tells you that the vibration is in the chassis somewhere. If it does, it's likely to be something to do with the driveline.

Now, a word of information. A Harley-Davidson is a 45° degree V-Twin engine. As such, the engine cannot be perfectly balanced. A vertical twin or a horizonal twin can be balanced perfectly but the Harley engine is as far as possible from either of these two conditions. This is one reason why Harley engines shake. The Softail series of motorcycles use the "B" engine which is a counter balanced engine to get away from the vibration. In most cases, Harley does a pretty fair job of getting their engines balanced close enough to be rideable. There are some products out there made to help the vibration problem.

Problem is vibration at 2500 rpm to 3000 rpm its so bad its not worth riding. Harley dealer tells me it a Dyna and thats what they do..... they just test drive it and tell me that " " they also bend down...


The last guy that wrote in here with the vibration problem was told his crank is shot!!! These are fairly new bikes, how do you get a bad crank shaft?? Somebody is screwing up. I was thinking that his cam timing was out of whack so it would miss and cause vibration like a funny car. But he didn't believe that one. Anyway, check it out. You might have to get a new bottom and swap your jugs and heads over to the new engine. Or just part out the old one and get a whole new engine. Hope this helps.

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!
