Sounds like they did not re tighten Compensating sprocket, and may have come loose.. They need to go back inside and have a look.

Harley davidson whining coming from primary area

What year is the bike. Is the primary chain adjusted properly? Is there an adequate amount of oil in the primary? Check that the clutch to mainshaft nut is not loose. If none of those you could have a defective clutch hub bearing. You could also have a defective transmission input/mainshaft bearing or a main output shaft/drive sprocket bearing. Listen with a stethoscope to try to narrow down where the sound is coming from.

My 2004 Heritage Softail Classic has devoloped a 'whirring' noise from the engine area. most noticeable at idle and low speeds. I am assuming it is from the counterbalance system in the 88B motor. Any...

I haven't had any problems with the balancing system. If the noise is coming from the left side, check the primary chain adjustment/adjuster. If it's coming from the right side, check the cam shoes. The shoes went bad in my '04 Fatboy and whined like it had gear drive cams. Good luck!

There is a whining noise from the primary side of engine by the generator is there a bearing on the out side near the cover?

No, the whining noise come from the primary chain as it spinning over the clutch and the sprocket motor.Perhaps the adjustment is too tight,this will cause the noise.Do you check the chain tight through the inspection cover on the primary .You need a 1/2 to 5/8 in free play.
