Hi Al,
I know you are looking for feedback and I hope I can help.
I have a FLHR Road King Harley Davidson and believe me It clunked real bad when I bought it (7,000 miles), I checked the clutch primary chain, well within tolerance, also Clutch plates too.
I know your engine is wet sump and the gearbox uses the same oil as the engine?
I changed my gearbox oil and also double checked level as the amount that came out wasn't enough?
Since then pure smooth cold & Hot, so maybe the wrong viscosity oil? Nice & Thick cold but when thinned due to warm up and at operating temp not coating the gears so bulk rings failing slightly?
There you go one to look at?

Why does my bike take so long to reach a normal operating temperture? It will keep cutting out until at least 4 miles is reached.


only 4 miles????? thats not bad realy,,after all its darn cold air out there!!,you never start it and let it run up for a fuw minuets before you drive away then? a cold engine will have maximum engine were done to it if driven cold! have you checked the thermostat out? if its stuck open the engine will take longer to warm up,,,but 4 miles???? thats nothing my BMW takes forever to warm up,,,the fan has only ever started up once in 3 years of riding it??? i was sat in a jam up for 30 minuets first with the engine ticking over!!! dont worry it will warm up quicker when the wether warms up

Noisey injectors


im not entirely sure on injectors but i do know that engines need time to warm as the internal parts are made slightly smaller than they shud be to allow for heat expansion so when you start in a cold morning this could just be the case

Pulsar's smoothness changes after few kms


ok so its a brand new bike.. though the engine comes with proper boring nowdays but still you shold maintain low speeds  initially as  they are bits which take time to settle. did you ever meet an accident?? this may be a handling problem too..,may be the bike is disbalanced. get it checked in the service centre only.. Hope it works..:))

Transmission won't change into overdrive when cold


Thats normal, when it warms up it will shift. If no there is a problem. It does that to warm up the engine faster.
