Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic
If your bike's suspension is bottoming out, it'll feel just like it did when you rode off the curb on your bicycle when you were young. Instead of the suspension absorbing the shock, you'd get a bone jarring slam when the suspension runs out of it's travel. In this case, you need to put more air pressure in your suspension system on your Ultra. If it is not an air suspension, adjust the rear shocks to a tighter preload and put a heavier weight oil put in the front forks.
Check the tension of the drive belt by having someone measure the deflection of the belt when ten pounds of force is applied to the middle of the lower belt run with you sitting on the bike. It should be about a 1/2" or so. Some bikes are different and since I don't have an owner's manual for all of them, I'd suggest calling the service department of your local dealer. They should be able to tell you the setting. They also sell a special tool for applying the ten pounds of force to the belt. It's not expensive either.
