Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
If the bike has developed this vibration AFTER fitting the new exhaust, then check all fitting instructions as it has to be related to the fitting. The same applies to the Power Commander. I would however first remove the Power Commander and check for the problem. If problem disappears, then Power Commander is probably tuned incorrectly. As I really need to feel this 'vibration' to draw a conclusion, it may be sound related, as noise is vibration. Remember, if fault has occurred after fitting the exhaust, then the fault is related to the fitting.

Your motor mounts may need re-aligned. Loosen all the mount bolts...ALL OF THEM...start the bike, let it idle for 5 seconds, shut off, then torque mounts to specs. Don't rev it!
Loosen the front lower mount first. If there is a noticeable gap between the frame and mount, shim it with washers. This has solved many vibration problems on the rubber mount bikes. Somewhere on the 'net, there is a posting on how to do it with pictures. Been several years since I saw it, so try Google.

Hi Steve, the engine and transmission are rubber mounted and when the bike was brand new they all shake and vibrate a little at an idle but smooth out off idle. Yor bike is 8 years old and you could have a broken front mount or problems with the upper mount. Good luck

The only thing spinning and vibrating at idle is the crankshaft, gear box , clutch and flywheel
if the power commander is electronic there may be a fault in it
best place for these faults is a dealer shop as they are aware of these sorts of problems
