 After a test ride the issue is gone. There's no more abnormal vibration only the smooth running of the ride  :orange:  :2vrolijk_21:

Thanks for reaching out Mark  :2vrolijk_21:

 Wear on the sliding cam,  spring flattening out

Hi Mark,
 I've got it sorted out mate.
The problem was , i was getting a thumping feeling vibration that i couldn't seem to figure out what was the issue causing it.
While i was riding i decided the thumping feeling felt like it was in relation to the firing of the motor. What i was feeling was the pulsing of the sliding cam of the compensator.
I opened up the primary and removed the compensator.  I found the first spring that backs the sliding cam had completely collapsed (flattened out) allowing the cam to pulsate each time the motor fired.

I got a heavier duty spring from Fueling Part. It's  has a 18° degree  bevel and 0.072" thickness  compare to the SE first spring of an 8° degree bevel and 0.068" thickness

Here's some photos of the fault

Pull the bulb and check for power if its led check output from circuit board. Did you check the power and ground to the circuit board?

@pauly_2 and @sikbird - appreciate the quick responses ! 

I assume by the "brake light switch" you mean the activation switch from the brake pedal?  Presumably, if this was bad, then the 2 side bullets with the Custom Dynamics Run/Brake/Turn LEDs would also not activate on brake light?   Those do indeed activate correctly - which are plugged in to the same circuit board as the rear taillight assembly. 

I did pull things apart and clean them as much as I could.  Was dismayed to find it appears not possible to easily disassemble the actual taillight assembly !!  I'll double check to make sure the pins and connectors are all clean.

Please keep the input coming !!  Thank you!

Like Sikbird suggested, your brake light switch (down near the exhaust) suffers a lot of heat and is often the culprit. Another thing to check, is road debris getting on the circuit board in the tail light assembly. I once had an intermittent brake light problem, where it would work sometimes, but not often. I racked my brain trying to find the issue and was about to cut into the wiring loom, when I thought I’d disassemble the tail light assembly first. When I did, there was a tiny piece of gravel bridging two pins going to the brake light. I removed that, cleaned the circuit board and reassembled… solved!

Check your switch down by the frame near the rear (hydraulic line in and two wires attached) I had to replace one on my Night Train so they do go bad occasionally.  You’ll need to re-bleed your brake so it would be a good time to go ahead and replace the fluid.

Hey all - I have an '08 FXSTSSE2 (Softail Springer).  The rear center brake light is no longer working, the running light does.  Long ago I installed the Custom Dynamics Run/Brake/Turn LEDs in the rear bullet housing; and these are showing Brake/Run/Turn lights correctly, and are also plugged in to the circuit board.

I suspect either the rear circuit board or the LED light assembly itself has gone bust.  The circuit board is $28.  The entire rear taillight assembly is $250 ... so ... obviously ... I'm hopeful it's just the circuit board.

But - I'm not certain how to troubleshoot this successfully to determine if it's the circuit board or the taillight assembly.  Any guidance or pointers would be greatly appreciated.  I do have a decent volt meter, despite the fact that I don't know a huge amount about actually using it ...

Much appreciated if someone has some tips or tricks to diagnose which of the two might be the culprit.

Thank you,

P.S. Attached is the assembly view of what I'm referring to.  Item 14 (taillight) and 19 (circuit board) are the two I believe that are in question.
  • 14    68349-07D* TAILLAMP ASSEMBLY, W/ REF # 27, 30*    247.99
  • 19    68830-99A CIRCUIT BOARD    27.49

40 plus year rider of HD's, new member on this forum from the UP of Michigan!  Hoping to find a 2022 Road Glide CVO Envious Green Fade. I had a deposit down on one last year, but the bike never made it to the dealership, hoping to find one with low miles.  My last 4 bikes have all be CVO's, and have nothing but quality times and rides on them.  Sold my 2012 street glide CVO, in anticipation of receiving the new CVO last year, my mistake!

Does anyone know how many of this color were made for 2022? I’m new to this forum. Thank you for any help
