Bike: 2011 Fxdc dyna super glide.

When riding, and accelerating, any gear.. Any speed, my engine seems as smooth as I could ever hope for. No hesitation at all..

HOWEVER
If I'm stopped in neutral, or pull the clutch in and do the same revving , simulating quick acceleration, then it sounds like the engine chokes out. It's just not the same sound/ power as when bike is in gear.

It happens regardless if motor is hot/ cold, but it's consistent & repeatable.

I've tried some seafoam which doesn't seem to impact my concern.

Does it sound normal? When riding it's fine... Just when its neutral , or clutch in. At those times it sounds like a wimp, not a Harley

Any comments are appreciated .

What mods have you done? Exhaust still stock? Air cleaner? More info needed.

Maybe install competition baffles. Which V & H pipes?
