All of the accidents that have been posted on the internet have been a LOW SPEED rear end wobble. It has also just came out it might be a Bosch Sensor that is also involved. Soooo I'm thinkin it has something to do with a rider adjustable suspension. But I don't know for sure.

Be Safe

THE DAWG

Do you have any links?  I have not had much luck finding anything on this.  I've seen two low speed rear end wobbles reports.  I know the road glide has all been low speed.  To the best of my knowledge there are no sensors on the rear suspension.  I have adjusted compression, rebound and pre load on mine a few times trying to get it how I like it.  There are no wires that I see coming off either shock.

There would be sensors for  Cornering Enhanced Anti-lock Brake System (C-ABS), Cornering Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking (C-ELB), Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS), and Cornering Drag-Torque Slip Control System (C-DSCS).  These are all standard on the 2023 CVO's, and were optional on the 22 and 23 touring line.  Not sure if they were optional for 21.   Earlier in this thread I was wondering if one of these systems could be responsible.  I can see where a failed sensor or one acting improperly could cause an issue.

Good hypothesis, sort of like an improperly set MCAS unit on an airplane caused them to crash.

Yes I do.  Some one now makes a harness to by pass that.

I stopped by my dealer today and asked about this issue. The answer I got was :

“It is nothing to worry about, they all do that”

That is day one training for Harley service writers.  It's their answer for everything.
