    Have you timed the bike with a strobe?
    I would check for a double image. Firing can be way off form one side to the other if the Dyna is not adjusted properly.

    Yes, of course it won't spin if it's on the ground. You can kneel or sit behind the bike, push up on the rack with one hand and spin with the other. If it rattles, I would suspect a worn U-joint.

    U-joints do go bad. What happens when you spin the rear wheel with the bike on the center stand? Hear any noises? What about when pushing it around the garage?

    I actually have an R60/6 but I don't think the forks are any different (I could be wrong) but she seems happiest with 7.5W.

    May be time for a new flasher relay. There is an inexpensive option at your local NAPA if you're cheap like me. : )

    You may also want to check your turn signal grounds (all the brown wires).
