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.

SOURCE: Loud Downshift

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

SOURCE: noise in trans or in primary chain

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.

How much to replace clutch on 2007 harley davidson sportster 883 xl


You can get a replacement clutch for about $146 that is a complete replacement of your clutch plates. It has the extra plates to replace that poor designed spring plate that comes standard on your Sporty
-or- you can buy, for about $190 that same clutch plate kit AND includes the clutch spring tool with it. Here is a link, if you are interested in seeing. Still should have the manual to take the case and clutch apart and put back together though. The kit works great! I have replaced several of them for my friends and never had a problem. Here is the link to where you can get them, but feel free to do some shopping around if you like. The link is just where I have found them at a reasonable price and the spring tool is one of the easiest to access the spring retaining ring too. Anyway, here is the link I use to order mine and my friends replacement kits.

You put the spring plate on first (after putting on all the clutch disks) with it being held in the compressed state. Then you insert the snap ring into the grooves in the center of the clutch. Then you can re leave the pressure of the compressed spring plate. The snap ring is used to keep the spring plate under pressure at all times in normal operation.

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:

3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to

While in drive, hear clunking and grinding from front differential and axles chatter and hardly spin, drivers side chatters,passenger side spins, put in park, then back in drive and then passenger side...


It sounds like your limited slip differential is in need of a fluid change.
The clutch packs in the axle require a special friction modifier,about 4 ounces added to the axle lube,which fixes the chattering issue.
I'd suggest someone drop the axle diff cover and check or change the
fluid,to see if there are any big metal pcs. in there. If there is no damage,drain the diff fluid and add the friction modifier,only if a SLD..

Note: Only add the friction modifier,if you have a limited slip differential.
Since I can't physically see your vehicle,make sure a mechanic does
it right.

2007 yz450f has a low rumble when clutch is out all the way


The bearing for the clutch outer drum may be worn. The adjustment on the handlebars is to set lever free play(about 1/2 inch) before the cable becomes tight and operates the clutch release inside. Make sure the outer drum cover is tight--check with the clutch lever to make sure the plate releases the disks and plates.

My sporty 883 2007 don't start when pushed the start button, it has all lights good. I have to pull the clutch lever and starts inmediatly. What can i do?


Evidently, Harley has added a safety switch to the clutch lever. The starter will not activate until the clutch lever is pulled in. Since I don't have a schematic for a bike this late, I can't tell for certain but that would be my guess. The owner's manual should tell you this.

My transmission/clutch


The tranny on these are bullet proof. So, this is most likely going to be the clutch. I say most likely, because I thought my clutch had gone out here recently on my Softtail, but when I got the clutch assembly off, it turned out to be the front drive belt pulley. They're aluminum, and spun the splines out., so keep this in mind if the clutch is good. Since this is an 883 that makes it easier to inspect the clutch. You'll need to pull the primary cover, check the clutch cable mechanism inside the cover, and check the friction plates on the clutch. You should be able to see if the frictions have any pad left, and the cable mechanism will be easy to tell if there's anything wrong with it. Use new primary fluid, and get a new primary gasket, do not reuse the old, especially the gasket. Although it may look good, even the smallest separation in the gasket will cause a leak. Good luck, and let me know how it turns out.
