Check behind the sprocket casing it could be just muck and grease causing it.

A drawn out squirmy noise in the head only when you rev


Is there a chain drive to overhead cams? If so, maybe the tensioner, chain or gears are bad.

I have a 2003 Harley road king Police bike. I have 10000 miles on it. I am erperiencing a chinging sound when downshifting. I suspect the tension on the small chain inside the transmission. Is there a way...


I'm sorry but there is no chain in a Harley transmission. The only chains on your bike is in the cam chest of the engine. They drive the two camshafts that operate the valves.

Now, most of the time when riders complain about a "chirping" noise when they shift gears, it's because the final drive belt is too loose. It will make a noise every time you shift a gear, up or down. Check the tension on your rear belt and see if that helps.

Good Luck
Steve

I have value train niose in the front head 2002 low rider is this normal


Depends. You will get some valve noise as the bike gets older, however, this noise is only noticable at Idle. If you are getting a loud enough noise at crouse speed to the point of being annoying then the chances are you have a lifter that is starting to collapse. This is upper end noise only. If you are getting a lower end noise and have at least 30,000 miles on the bike. Chances are the valve drive chain tensioners are going. This is a known problem with twin cam engines. I have two twin cams and had to replace the tensioners on both. My advice to you if this is the problem is to go to Gear Drive cams. I did it without any regrets. I have a quicker power response and was able to increase my rev. limit speed by almost 200 rpms. The down side according to some is a wining noise. I don't get any noise I can hear over my Python 3 pipes. In my opinion the benefits out weigh the noise. Without having the bike in front of me this is the best I can suggest.

Ticking noise in 6th mainly on deceleration


Check your chain and sprockets, sometimes the chain wears the sprocket out, "curving" the teeth so it hooks the chain. You probably have the ticking in lower gears as well, but it only hooks the chain at speed - and in 6th the engine revs are lower, the engine is quieter, so you hear the chain easier.

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.
