Since it's a new bike and obviously you haven't had it long, take it to the dealer!

They must know you are new, but beyond that, you paid a pretty penny for that scooter. It's under warranty & if you think something's not right, make them check it out.

Ride safe ...:cool:

Big clunk

Hutch,

As I ride my V, I am comparing much of the experience with my Road King. The V's clunk is very similar to the tranny clunk on my evo (R.K.). The V's tranny is also very similar in feel to the new ones with the 88B twin cams. I rented a Deuce a while back and it is almost identical to the V.

For what it's worth..........CJ
