    I have a 08 Night Train, great bike all around, but I am hearing a kinda loose sounding knock somewhere in the forks, where they mount to the bike. It doesn't do that all the time, it just seems to knock when I when I roll over some bumps in the road. Does anyone know what that could be? is it normal or could something really be loose and a safety hazzard. It is 2 months old and I'm concerned about it. So if anyone has experienced that on say any softtail I'm open hears on what it could be. Thanks.

    Cool, I just have a hard time believing something is loose already on a new bike, but maybe. I've grabbed the forks and shook pushed and pulled, but don't hear it unless I'm on the road. I guess I'll have them ride it and hopefully they hear it and get rid of it. Thank You

    It should still be under warranty. Let us know if that's the problem!!

    Very common on new bikes. I had to do my steering head adjustment at 400 miles, it was knocking pretty badly.
