    Every time I fill up my tank, I get some really strange noises from the gas tank area for a few minutes. Sort of a swishing or grinding sound. What's up with that? It goes away after a while and everything is fine.

    Possibly a fuel pump problem or something associated with the lines or filter. Have the dealer take a look at it.

    I would take it back to the dealer before you run into some real problems down the road.

    That I will! Dude, so far this 09 Glide isn't looking so good for quality!
    Paint popped off the starter housing.
    The noisy fill up thing.
    Entirely all exhaust out the left side only.
    I dunno.....

    Just emailed the dealer. So far my feelings on this thing aren't great! Too many issues for a bike with 375 miles on it. Rides great but....

    If you feel your dealer isnt doing their best to remedy your problems contact H-D customer service (corporate) and get a case number started.
    414-343-4056. They do not reieve e-mail at this time.This way the company has documentation on your problems as well.
