Your Sportster 2003, Is not rubber mounted.. It's frame mounted.. Meaning You will feel the higher revs through the bars and pegs, That's why Harley changed there mounting.

The 45° V-Twin engine is impossible to balance perfectly. For this reason, Harley has started building their Sportsters with rubber mounted engines. If you model is one of the newer rubber mounted versions and it vibrates this bad, the only thing that I can suggest to for you to inspect the engine mounts. Don't forget to take a look at any top engine mounts as well.

Good Luck

Hi Jerry, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck and have nice day.

2005 xl1200 custom. neutral light is not coming on

Either the light is blown or the neutral switch is bad. The neutral switch is near the front belt pulley beneath the cover. Take the wire off and ground it with the ignition switch on. The light should light up. If not, it's probably the light blown. If it does, the switch is bad.

Good luck

Turn signal on harley sposter tunr on by thamself

I'd look for a short in the handlebar switch housing or behind the headlight on the side that the signal is coming on. Check the turn signal switch.
