I am on my 3rd Road King, since 2008 and I have had problems with all 3. My resent bike is a 2017 road king.
when I start the bike cold, from sitting for several days, the rps go up very high and the bike sounds like it is going to come apart. After a minute or two it will idle down, but there is still a rattling noise coming from the engine. The dealer says some bike make this noise . when ridding the faster you go the louder the noise gets.
I have had 15 new Harleys over the years, but the ones I have had since 2008 have all had problems.
I am not happy at all with Harleys. I no longer feel they are worth what you have to pay for them.
