Bad engine vibration at idle
Hi guys! A buddy of mine sold his hand built bike because he wanted to get something more comfortable for his wife. He wanted a street glide, but found a really great deal on a road glide, and after he went to the dealer and drove both, he decided he would "live" with the road glide, which he liked better all around! He got a GREAT deal on a 2007 Road Glide with about 22k on it, and it has the 96ci motor. He loves the way it rides, and even wifey commented on how much more comfortable it was than the last scooter.
Except one thing. She noticed, and I did too, that the engine shakes really bad at idle. We went to a local bike night and I saw an 07 road and street glide. Both bikes had kitten smooth motors at idle. I was thinking I would order new motor mounts and do the job for him for his birthday as a surprise, but after reading around on the forums, I'm seeing that some people say the motor is an "A" motor, which means it vibrates more at stock. It doesn't seem right to me, but I'm not familiar with Harley's so I can't really say from experience.
Anyway, I hope someone can shed some light on it. I know it's not a bit deal because the bike pulls hard, and so hard that I would be flabbergasted to find out something was actually really wrong with it.
Thanks in advance! I'll probably be joining the Harley club myself in a year or two. For now I'll also have to "live" with a Yamaha Warrior.
