Replace the broken part in the oil assembly, if metal debrys got inside the oil pump, then the oil pump had probably been damaged.
I suggest replacing the pump.

Give us more details if you need additional help.

Thanks.

Hi, I would like to answer your question better but I do not know exactly what you are asking. If the cylinder was bored to go bigger and a hone was used and they didn't get it exactly right there are going to be a lot of metal shavings in the crank case. You said did, "they" break, I don't know which "they" you are referring to. If you are seeing big pieces of metal it could be pieces of the rings. I don't think the oil pump would be in pieces. The unfortunate thing is that you will have to tear the motor down and check everything if you have big pieces of metal in the crankcase. Good Luck to you!

2003 harley 1200 custom sportster with 50 miles strats up fine with choke pulled out. once engine is warm and choke is pushed in 50% bike stalls out. have repalaced gas, spark plugs and just took apart...


A 2003 model with only 50 miles?? Wow....well,since youve already taken the carb apart and cleaned it,did you hook up the vaccum line for the VOES switch on the intake manifold? If so,..when you get the bike running,..spray some brake clean around the intake where it bolts to the heads.If the idle picks up,or starts to sputter,..youve got leaking intake gaskets. Which is a good possibility on a bike that old with that few miles on it.The choke essentailly adds more fuel to the motor,and by what your saying,the bike is obviously running lean. Also,...im ASSUMING that you have fresh gas in it,and the petcock is turned on.

If this bike was well maintained then there should be no major problems. The goldwing is well known as a reliable long lasting bike when properly looked after.

The sator went out. When I did the oil change I found metal shavings on the oil drain plug. I rode for about 200 mile and looked at the drain plug again there was a few more metal shvings on the plug....


More than likely, the metal shavings have come from the primary chain and the sprocket teeth on the compensator sprocket and the outer clutch hub. Also, you have a starter ring gear and the starter drive gear. Finding metal shavings in the primary is not unusual.

Good Luck

Stuck in first


You got it, bent shift fork. I think the manufacturers make them weak just to keep dealer service
departments in business. This is a pretty major repair.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!
