What kind of noise? How does it sounds like? Might it be due to the knobby tires or it's something that could be caused by mechanical parts?Has anyone else noticed their PanAm getting a progressive louder noise the more it is leaned on curves , and even louder when it's loaded heavy? Thank's
I am afraid I never experienced anything like that and I never heard of anybody else reporting such an issue before (but I might be wrong).It sounds like a loud sewing machine noise that is louder with bike leaned on curves. I have the on/off tires Harley puts on. Fluids are good in motor and chain is adjusted, guides, and lubed and wheel straight. The screaming eagle street cannon w/o db killer got exhaust sounding great , but this noise is still loud coming from center of bike. Maybe I'm gonna have to get used to it. C
Thank's, I hope it's not valve noise since it's self adjusting valves and I only have 1500 miles on it so far, but it was a thought in my head. My first thought was chain chatter, but but did a full adjustment/inspection/lube. I'll inspect brake and wheel next time it's on center stand.I will say, I own a V-Rod and the overhead valve train makes a similar noise. Almost diesel-like clacking. Could just be valve noise bouncing back to you. Other ideas may be axle/wheel bearing, brake part misalignment, or maybe the spoked wheels if you have them.
Hi @MAO, if you post in Italian, just a few we'll be able to reply back to your questions.Chiedo a tutti voi se per caso avete notato una rumorosità troppo alta nel cambio di marcia.
La mia ritengo faccia un po' troppo rumore sia in innesto che in scalata della marcia. Grazie
Unfortunately, this is it when you meet with unprofessional people... Think positive, you live in the States, you can move to another place and get assistance from others.The moment you realize you bought the wrong Harley from the wrong Harley dealer.
After my friends riding my '22 PanAm with1800 miles on it, and riding beside me and a motorcycle mechanic all saying it has a mechanical roar at 65mph in 6th gear and worse leaned on curves. Harley Davidson dealership I bought it from just called and said 4 of us test drove it and we hear nothing, we documented the roar so if it tears up it's covered under warranty...
Solution; buy earplugs.. what the
