    So when the bike is at idle inthe driveway and or at a stop it seems to have a rattle up front. When I grab a fist of front brake it stops. Is it the pads that are rattling? All caliper bolts are tight as (EDIT)

    Any ideas?


    any help appreciated thanks,:D

    Could be a lot of things from the front end, have some one stand next to the bike while you squeeze the brake and look for any thing rattling or out of place

    On my 2008 Glide I had a similar rattle. I found to be right floor board. Bolts appeared to be tight but was able to turn a little more. Noise gone.

    If you have floating rotors it could be the bushing are worn and the rotor is rattling on the carrier
