Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Engine smokes (blue) when hot. Clunking noise comes from engine when throttled (like it is in too high of gear).

Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry but I loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Have a nice day.

You either need to lube the cables, or adjust them. You adjust the throttle to have a 16th to an 8th inch of freeplay with the bars like youre riding straight. You adjust the snap back with the bars fully to the right. As far as the motor shutting off , you need to use the enrichner ( they call it a choke) until it will idle on its own without rapping the throttle. Also , your idle may be set too low on the carb. The adjustment is made at the idle speed screw , right behind the air cleaner.
