Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDX Dyna Super Glide Sport

1 Answer

My 2009 Dyna Super Glide Custom motorcycle has had an unusual amount of vibration overall when under way while accelerating or deaccelerating through 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears. It seems to me to be either engine or transmission related.

You can check for a loose or broken motor mount but you need to consider how the rubber mounts work. The mounts absorb high frequency vibrations. Low frequency vibrations will be felt throughout the machine.

On most Dyna's, the bike vibrates when idling. When accelerating though the gears (and decelerating back down) if the engine rpm's gets below about 2000 rpm's, you'll feel the vibration. Once above this level, the bike smooths out due to the change in frequency of the vibrations. I have owned a '94 FXDWG since new and this is my experience with the bike.

However, if the vibration is very bad, you may need to have it looked at by a technician. You'll have to determine that for yourself.
