"Marbles" in my 2006 1200 Custom
« on: June 22, 2015, 07:04:54 AM »
Riding this weekend, toward the end, a sound started coming from the front cylinder of my 2006 Sportster 1200 Custom. I sounds like a marble is rolling around in there. Not all the time, but about 50%.... Tried to figure out if it was during acceleration or what, but couldn't pin point it....
11,000 miles.....Screaming Eagle Air filter rejetted carbs and V & S straights.

Any help would be REALY appreciated....

Are you sure you're not hearing "pinging"?
Simple first, use a higher grade fuel and see if the noise stops.
Report back after test.

There should be a punishment for someone asking a question, getting advice and not replying. It's just RUDE !!!

Pinging sounds like what you explain.
Did you try a higher grade of fuel?

I agree. And the "punishment", for me, would be to not answer any future inquiries.  Unless he has a good reason.  Like he died.
