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.

    Check the fairing mounts inside the fairing as these break fairly regularly and can vibrate when exhaust is changed to louder type.

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

2003 harley davidson full dresser back fires or pops sound on the left side pipe when i let go the the gas handle at around 2000rpms it all started when i had new cams put in


Popping sound at the exhaust is usually due to a very lean setting which causes unburnt fuel to burn late in the exhaust pipe and happens when you are going at a high rpm with a closed throttle making it even leaner. My bike had the same problem and most Harleys are factory tuned lean which is very bad as the engine runs hot. After putting free flow Rhinehart pipes like i did, it became worst so i installed the Vance & Hines fuelpak and now my bike runs so silent and cooler. A great difference from before.

2006 FLH GIVE IN GAS EFI ENGINE LIGHT COME ON LET OFF AND IT GOES OUT


have you added any after market parts?
new exhaust or high flow filters new to have your system remapped even if they tell you it isn't needed.
I recommend getting a fuel pak from vance and hines or something similar so you can do it yourself. Much cheaper in the long run

Bike has 70,000 miles with power commander true duals and high flow air filter. The bike will not idle and will die if its under 1100 rpms. Runs good as long as throttle is turned.


With the power commander on it you will need to hook up a laptop with the program for your bike and what mods it has and set the throttle posistion from idel to wide open throttle.

My 2006 Harley road king shakes alot when standing


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.
