Does anyone know if a too-tight primary chain, or a too-tight rear drive belt will cause excessive vibration transfer to the bike?

Primary chain - doubt it; drivebelt - maybe but still doubtful. What do you call "excessive"? At what speed/RPMs is the vibration present? At idle all Dynas shake quite a bit.

MAJ. Thx for the reply.. Vibes are at 3k rpm and up to 5k. Been on other Dynas ('01 Wide Glide) incredibly smoother.. Mine is a '00 Low Rider.

Yes they will.

Also check the engine links even if you have to take off the tank, as well as the front engine mount. Check it not only for tightness but take it out and make sure it is not in any way cracked or separated.

Pipes can also cause all sorts of vibrations.

Hippo, thx for the reply, have any experience with "Velva Ride" top engine links? How about Hayden M6 primary tensioners? Pipes look good, not grounding out anywhere. Have'nt looked at front mount yet, have gone through mount centering task. Bike has just 10k miles..

All these things are gimmicks for people too lazy to find the real problem.
