Question about 2007 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Can hear engine "clunk when at idle with clutch pulled. Goes away when shift to neutral.
Might very well have warped plates. I assume you tried to adjust the clutch. If you did and it didn't help, it looks like you'll be opening it up and seeing what's what.

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.

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

To charge the battery you can connect to the positive terminal on the battery or the large lug on the starter, then connect the ground to any clean bolt on the frame as the battery negitive goes to chassis

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.
