Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLSTC - FLSTCI Heritage Classic
If I let off the Throttle there's a lag then a clunk almost sounds like metal on metal. Compensator is fine, nut is tight. Just had Cams and Cam chain tensioners replaced. any suggestions?
Possible the drive sprocket(behind inner primary) is coming loose. You can see it from behind, sighting along the drive belt. Stick a long screwdriver between the sprocket and primary and twist it to see if the sprocket moves. Another possibility is the large ball bearing the main drive gear rides in. This requires complete transmission disassembly, but on a harley is not as expensive as it sounds. This problem sometimes produces a loud whistle or wine when decellerating.

Hi Mike, Is the sound internal? or could it possibly be the engine mounting? maybe the bonding on the rubber mount has deteriorated causing a thud through its mount/bolts.
Just a thought.
