    Hi Boys first post so please be gentle, I have an 06 Lowrider and the clutch lever pulsates, it happens when I take up the slack on the lever and I can actually see the lever moving in and out, spoke to the dealer and they said there is nothing wrong with it but it doesnt do it on my mates 06 Lowrider.

    What do you reckon, something going wrong with the clutch housing ??

    Cheers

    Mainey, Dealer sounds full of shit. Is there any issue with the braking- soft feel, brakes lock on to quick, or are the brakes fine and they just pulsate?

    karlrockdrain the brakes are fine, I'm more concerned with the clutch and why the lever moves in and out whilst it is idling.

    Yeah i wouldn't accept the dealers answer either Mainey, even if it WAS the brakes :)

    Mind you, my gearbox sounds like its full of loose nuts and bolts and they insist there's nothing wrong with that either !

    Maybe get a second opinion if you can mate, but i wouldn't be happy with that.

    Hey Mainey

    My clutch lever pulsates at idle... as far as I know there are no ill effects from it on my bike ('08 Super Glide - done 9000+kms on it). The clutch appears to work fine and so does everything except the rider... few loose nuts there!!

    If you get anything from the dealer to say that it's a problem, would ya give me a yell please??

    Stay upright!!

    Hi Mainey88.

    Before I wrote off my 06 Dyna Superglide custom it did the same,  I could put my fingers around the clutch lever and notify me of the pulsating clutch lever while in gear and riding, usually it was worse in warmer weather and in 4th gear was very noticeable, I pulled the box down and nothing was wrong except the clutch thrust bearing adjuster moved, I was told by a mate when I showed him that it was common because of the way the new box was designed, anyhow I rode that bike for over 70,000 klms and  had no failures.

    Just ride and dont worry

    Hi rocket,

    My new 2008 Bike sounded the same in the gearbox as yours, If you dont like the  it do as I did with great success.

    I went to Bursons and purchased a container of ALL SYNTHETIC REDLINE HEAVY SHOCKPROOF GEAR OIL, It is expensive but your gearbox will become silky smooth as butter and less noise (almost noiseless) for a US 1 Gallon container it is valued at $142.00 Australian but I managed to buy it for $120.00 that is enough oil for 4 changes 3.785 ltrs 

    Go get some it works great.
