Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

I HAVE A NEW 2011 HERITAGE SOFTTAIL AND WISH TO ADJUST THE REAR SHOCK BUT CANNOT LOCATE THE ADJUSTER


The adjusters are on the shocks that are underneath the bike. There are two adjustments. One is a nut on the shock stem that adjusts the height of the bike and the other is end plate of the shock with the holes in it. This adjusts the preload of the shocks. You need a special tool to adjust the preload.

Good Luck

theres a special tool to adjust the shock, but you can change em out with a couple of open end box wrenches. I would jack up the bike and support the rear wheel then do the shocks one at a time

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
  9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.
