Harley Davidson Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi, I ride a 1984 shovelhead flh. My riding style seems to be like yours. A couple of things that I did on my bike to help with vibration were to install the polyurethane riser busings and use some cushioned grips. These solid mount shovels will have some vibes. If your engine is well balanced and you use loctite on your fasteners it should help cut down on the vibes. Also make sure that your steering head bearings and swingarm bearings are good because they can have an adverse affect on handling. I know that others who are more knowledgeable will also make some great suggestions. I have been hanging around and looking at these posts for a while and just decided to join. Also i think that if you stay with the rear chain setup you will have more and less expensive final gear ratio options to play with. My bike runs the 32 tooth front pulley and a 70 tooth rear belt setup and could use a little taller top end at 75 but it works for me with little vibration. Reducing the rpm's at higher speeds will certainly make your ride more comfortable.Good luck on your project.

It's the low oil pressure warning lamp. It's suppose to come on at every start up. It will stay on for a couple seconds after the engine starts. This is normal.

So just got my 2012 tri glide from the shop. Had the whole charging system replaced! What are the chances that now have no reverse! Any connection? There is a click, no movement and you can still hear it when in first for a min.

It is fuel injected and electronically controlled. Start with STP fuel system cleaner. Then work through electronic metering and timing. https://bikez.com/motorcycles/harley-davidson_xl1200c_sportster_custom_2007.php Some help here https://www.google.com/search?q=2007+harley-davidson+sportster+1200+vibration .. ..

Hi, Timothy for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can not find the best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

The first thing I would do is replace the spark plugs again. You can foul a plug and it will cause you more problems than you can ever imagine. I see you have done all the logical things that I would recommend but I did not see you have replaced the plugs after the 200 miles. You would be surprised at how many times a $2.00 part can cause fits beyond belief.

0.9mm and possibly about 3.5-4.0L w/ filter change

Sounds like it is operating as it should now. Maybe it was a software update. Why would you want to risk starting it in gear?

Could be blown fuse, could be bad connection. Take a look.

We have a Harley Davidson Expert named Gregg Mahin. I have spent 15 minutes looking for posts by him, but he and all his tens of thousands of answers seem to have vanished. He includes his www.6ya.com address (paid service) and also his personal email address. This may help you with the codes. Both codes are related to the Electronic Fuel Injection.

Yes, this is acceptable. I prefer to set the front tire at 30 and the rear tire at 36 when riding single. It's a matter of ride quality preference. As long as the tires are inflated enough to prevent excessive flexing of the side walls, you are safe. By lowering the air pressure, you get a bit better traction as your tire's "foot print" is a bit larger but it doesn't handle quite as quickly either.

Good Luck
