You might try stiffening the rear shocks just a bit. If they're set too soft, they will start to compress and rebound while in the turn. When you're leaning into a turn this compression and rebound translates into what I call a "hobby horse" wobble in that the bike feels like it is not only going side to side but up and down at the same time. Also, with the wide spacing of the front forks, a fork brace would help tremendously. Check your tire pressure as well. Also, check your engine alignment in the frame. It's best to let a dealer or someone who is familiar with the procedure do this. I hope this helps your problem.

Good Luck

05 fxdwg back fire when I let off the throttle

Bike fire through the pipes at deceleration is usually caused by a leak or leaks in the exhaust system, usually at a muffler joint, etc., sometimes at the exhaust port itself. To fix, locate the suspected joint and tighten the associated clamp. If this does not cure the issue, you may have an over fueling issue. Is the bike fuel injected?

Is the fuel pump suppose to make a noise while driving

It'll make a noise but it shouldn't be loud enough for you to hear it while riding unless you have ears like a cat. Ask a buddy to let you ride his fuel injected bike and see if you can hear his pump.

Good Luck
