Found the same thing when I first got the Road King but I must have gotten used to it because until your post I hadn't given it another thought. I found cruise useful on bumpy roads when I first go the bike but hardly use it any more unless on a long haul.
TBW has been faultless for me on several bikes. Definitely not notchy or jerky. Sounds to me like you grip is pushed too far in. There should be some end float. Loosen the grip clamps and move the grip outwards 1 or 2 mm. You should be able to twist the throttle with just 2 fingers and it will snap back.
Congrats, change the handle bars as the stockers are crap. Stage 2 torque cam and corresponding tune/pipes work wonders.
Good luck and enjoy
Im with you JR, used to have a 1200 sporty custom....I have only had the ultra for 3 weeks now but how good is it....Im very impressed. Only stage 1 at the moment but may go to 114 soon....cheers First post.....
thanks OzDan, doesn't really add much though apart from having the dealers check for it - guess HD have no idea hey. I did read in the US forum some guys in Germany were changing the clutch pushrod and a couple of other parts to earlier CVO versions and optimistic, will follow that and see what happens. I'll try and add the link of part numbers later.
ps touch wood, mine hasn't transferred any yet.
I think it adds a great deal. It adds that finally the Motor Co have admitted there is an issue, and if owners in warranty who do experience the problem notify their dealers, they will be in line for a warranty fix once the solution is established. Prior to this notice being issued, dealers would just say they havent heard any reports of this happening/ it’s impossible/ or that there is no service reports concerning the issue.
My bike is currently uneffected but there are reports of bikes stating to transfer at higher mileage’s - one bloke had it start at 15,000 miles.....
Yeah I’d seen the German fix posts. But the service report lists bikes with these parts fitted standard so I doubt it’s a fix myself.
It’s official - Technical Alert #TA0022
That is one smooth looking ride, glad you got that throttle sorted and can now enjoy the ride.
What did you do with the 14's, I was thinking of trying them on the road king not so much for height but to lay them back a little so I'm not reaching for them as much.
Thanks China, I was under the impression that the risers and clamps were still 1".No matter
