This is my third street glide in 14 months,from same dealer. The deals on bikes was amazing. First real dealings with service. I hope Monday they have some good news and there isn't much wrong.

Wondered about that myself.

I do all the maintenance on my bike, I'll more than likely do any repairs once it's out of warranty. That's one of the things that makes it MY bike, not just something I bought.

Me and Gf at the time bought an 2008. Of course we broke up,sold it and I bought a 2009 was looking at a 2012. Found this great bike,loaded with chrome and all I wanted. Bought it instead of 2012. There was a title issue,dealer bought bike back after 5 weeks. They bent over to get me onto the 2013 I have now. Been kinda a mess but have a new bike,first year for midnight pearl. Love bike great deal.dealership really worked to make it happen.

Dealer service manager called today. They have checked over entire bike. Disassembled forks,found nothing found. He told me I may just have to live with the noise. He stated noise wasn't as noticeable with the air spoiler removed from lower triple tree. I have no idea what to do. I don't feel a 2013 Harley with 1300 miles should have a noise in front end when you go over bumps. It's as if something is loose,dealership just doesn't know what. Gonna ask if I take to another dealer will it be covered since my dealer lowered forks.

Take it to another dealership or a trusted indy for another opinion.

With service manual in hand I will do all my own servicing on my bike. Been around to long and wrenched on everything I've owned to know better than to trust dealership techs.....

Talked to dealer today noise better,still not gone. Was going to try a new wheel on bike. I just fell a new bike shouldn't have a noise in it. I will do all I can on my own,but it's new and they should fix it.

Sounds like a bunch of hackers to me.
