Question about Harley Davidson 2007 Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide

1 Answer

I just purchased a 2007 Street Glide (traded a Heritage Softail) and it seems to vibrate excessively at idle. Perhaps I'm just not accustomed to it yet. Your thoughts?

The touring models are going to vibrate or more so shake at and idle more than your softail.the one major difference in your twin cam "B" engine and twin cam 96" A engine is that the softail is counter balanced in the crank case and is also a solid mount engine. straight engine to frame.these two counter balancer's are chain driven off of the crank. the street glide has three rubber mounts on it, one being in the front where the wish bone or down tubes turn inder the bike and two in cleave blocks that are alighned by small pins to be located in the correct position the swing arm also uses these in mounting the swing arm. so you will notice at around 75 mph to 80 mph you may get a "rider known death wobble" (just slow down) there are after market braces in all ranges of price to solve that problem. the more expensive the better it will last and work.

High speed wobble

Speed wobbles can be caused by incorrectly adjusted steering head bearings. If the wobble comes in at the same speed on a straight road then look at wheel balancing as it may be a wheel hop you are feeling and not a wobble. Speed wobbles is when bike starts moving left to right to left and so on. Balance problems is when an up/down vibration is felt and always at the same speed. Another problem can be that the fairing support brackets inside the fairing have broken. This is a common fault on Harleys and there is an updated part when replacing them. I repair them by Tig welding and beefing up the area where they crack. If the fairing seems to be vibrating excessively at idle and you can move it then check this for sure.

Battery is charged, Starter Whines and is turning but bike won't fire off, 2009 Street Glide

is your engine turning over, if it is, pull your spark plugs and clean them. this happens on my 98 Heritage Softail Classic. It sounds funny but from long warm ups with choke pulled they get carbon build up and this keeps the plug from firing. If your motor is not turning over then you Bendix gear is out on your starter.

How to slow fast idle in heritage softail

Sorry but you have to take it to a dealer or someone with a box that can adjust the idle speed. Your fuel injected bike is just like your car, there isn't much can as an owner can do to them anymore. It's been headed that way since 1999. The days of fixing your own motorcycle are slipping away quickly. That's why I'm keeping my old bikes. I can still work on them.

Good Luck
