    I stopped by a friends house today and he wanted to ride my Road Glide. I hopped on his 09 Ultra and there we went. I had barely pulled out of his driveway when I started hearing something loose, a metallic sound. Pulled over when I could and got to looking and his rear pulley was broke. The inner rim was totally broken off the pulley, the belt had tracked inward about 3/4" and the pulley rim had beat the heck out of his wheel rim.

    Oh yeah, I did turn his stereo off before we left. He said he never heard anything.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Called the shop and they haven't heard of this either. We will see what they say Saturday when we take it in.

    I've been to two world fairs and 3 goat ropings and I ain't never seen anything like that.:D:D

    I'll take my camera over there Saturday when we put it on the trailer. I'll post them Saturday night.

    That is exactly what is going on. Made a weird sound rolling on the rim. :D

    Here are the pictures. Note the rim. It got it pretty bad. The service writer saw his trailer hitch and said if the MOCO knew about that the warranty would be void. Me being me I said I had one on my bike also and would he please show me where it will void the warranty. Well, Dan's bike is being fixed under warranty.:D

    Oh yeah, he said the problem was the trailer caused the bike to make too much torque. Dan and I looked at each other and laughed. They will blow smoke if you let them!:D:D

    Redfish Joe to the rescue!Imagine what would have happened if you didnt jump on that bike and recognize the severity of the problem.

    If that thing locked up on him at speed?????

    Id say he's buying the brews for a while.

    Yep he's good for them!

    Really I most likely would not have heard anything unless I turned his stereo off. Riding a different bike I don't like distractions. Good thing I did!!
