Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 883C Sportster Custom
By "loud" I assume you are talking about the "clunk" when you engage a lower (or higher) gear. Does the bike try to creep forward when you are in gear with the clutch disengaged? If it does, then you need to adjust the clutch cable. If you have one of those bogus braided cables, then the adjustment is something you much watch very closely. Forgive me, but if you are shifting down at to high a speed, you are going to hear some loud clunks as the gears are turning at very different speeds. The trans on your bike is a very well designed item and noise when shifting most likely does not mean problems.

My 2004 Sporty shift pedal is "notchy" especially when cold (allow 20-30 sec. of idle after starting) to allow time for oil to wet the shift forks and gear assemblies before shifting into first driving off. Also when down shifting, I usually do NOT use engine/trans gear braking on the street to save wear and tear on the clutch and running gear...brake pads are a lot easier (and cheaper) to replace over the long haul
