I just picked up a 2000 FXDWG with 6100miles on it and it runs great except for something I thought (could still be) is a vibration. But, then I started worrying that it might be the cam bearing.
Here's what happens, when decelerating I get a slight vibration/rattle from the front of the bike. It also happens at low rpm, high load. I don't have a tach, but by the sound it seems to happen around 2500-3000 rpms. When decelerating, if I pull in the clutch and the rpms drop (while it's making the noise), the noise goes away. I know what some of the symptoms of the bearing issue were, but I was wondering if the bad bearing noise would happen all the time, meaning all rpms, or would it be only within a certain rpm range?

Anyone with experience, please help me out.

Also, if I change the cams, does that automatically take care of the problem? Or are there other parts that were involved in the whole bad bearing thing.

generally because the bearings are changed with the cams but lifters oil pump and oil bag should also be inspected cleaned or replaced as ness
