How do you adjust the valves on a


If you have the stock pushrods, you can't!

I think it was sometimes during the EVO engines (which pre-date your Twin-Cam engine), Harley switched to NON-ADJUSTABLE push rods.

What is e most common cause to an engine knock on a 02 Harley davidson road king with 50000 miles bike still runs great no check engine lights are on and knock follows the rpm level


I'm sorry, but I don't know a lot about the Twin Cam engines but they are not that much different from the Evolution engines. One of the weak points in any Harley engine is the rollers on the ends of the tappets. The small needle bearing goes bad and it starts to knock. It will eventually lock up and ruin the camshaft that it's riding on. In your case there are two cams and it will ruin the one it's on. With 50K on the engine, that would be my guess as the I've seen the bottom ends of Evo engines still tight after 70K miles. I could also be one of the chain tensioners in the cam chest but usually people describe that noise as a whining type noise. If you still have the original pushrods in your engine, you will have to remove the rocker box covers to get the tappet blocks out.

Good luck
Steve

Whinning noise comming from around oil pump when the engine is reved up in neutral


There's a lot of stuff in the cam chest in the Twin Cam that wasn't in the old Evo and earlier engines. When is the last time you had the cam chain tensioners inspected? These pieces wear out over time. The Evo's and Shovels didn't have these pieces to wear. Also, you've got two chains in there, these could be making the noise. Also a LOT of bearing in there and any one or more could be making the noise. Now, I think Harley extend the warranty on everything in the cam chest out to 50,000 miles but you'll need to confirm that with them. Call Harley's customer service dept and have your bike frame VIN number handy.

Good Luck

Your transmission has a straight cut 5th gear and not a helical cut 5th gear.

Road King Motorcycle clutch


Theres 2 clutch adjustments you can do - one is on the cable, under the boot, the other is at the clutch hub, under the derby cover in the primary. That should take care of the whine and your problem finding neutral. If you get some teflon spray and shoot it generously down the inside of your cable, you are gonna be surprized at how easy it'll pull
