Got the call today from the new shop that my FXDFs vibration problem has been fixed, the list of things that the other shop had messed up was long, I'll do another post on the specifics but, the main problem was that when reassembling my bike the "bad" shop reinstalled the pin on the kick stand backwards and it was touching the motor, thus creating the vibration.
I am quite pissed at that shop for letting such a simple thing cause me 3 months and several $$ worth of frustration as well as irritated with myself for not finding it.
All is well though, the new shop discovered a litany of other things the "bad" shop messed up, so I'm glad I was pushed to the point of taking the bike somewhere else, the new shop even replaced the front tire for FREE because of the other shops had the forks misaligned making the tire wear odd. Can't beat that. They may be 70miles away but, I'll be doing all my Harley business there now. And my own maintenance. (the new shop will even help me if come across something that stumps me when doing my own wrenching.)
