Hi Anonymous, you could have broken motor mount, or in extremely rare cases your flywheels could have shifted, your pinion shaft runout would be tell tale sign. Good luck

SINCE THERE HAS BEEN REPAIRS MADE; CHECK IF ALL ENGINE TO FRAME CONNECTIONS ARE TIGHT.
ALSO, WHEN THE BIKE IS ON ITS CENTER STAND; GRAB THE LOWER END OF THE FORK, PULL AND PUSH TO SEE IF THE TRIANGLE BEARINGS ARE TIGHT.

2004 ultraclassic while driveing the volt meter goes from 14 down to 10and then backe up, does this most of the time while driveing, while stop at idle it stays at 14 lights dont dim or anything. whats...


Could be a number of things. Check the stator plug connection, the battery connections and the connections at the back of the volt meter. My guess is that something is loose and not making a connection while riding because of the vibration from the bike when riding. Also check the ground wire from the voltage regulator.

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.

Help my 2004 eletric glide flht has a huge vibration problem and I have changed all motoe mounts already, any other suggestions?


your crank may be out of balance. it could be the rod bearings as well. if you have had any major engine work done, you may have fly-wheel issues. the vibration is probably starting in the motor and is being transferred to the motor mounts. Also make sure you have the the bushings properly installed on the mounts which is what is used to aleviate vibration transfer from the motor to the frame.

To much vibration handle bars/ furring


First I would check the brackets that hold the fairing on the bike. These brackets are known to break! ( Mine 2004 Glide 4 times ) .This is a major cause of vibration on the front of bikes like ours. If this is not the case I would check ballance of the front tire
