Hmm, not much to go on...I don't know that engine well, but suggest a loose primary chain may give these symptoms...clicking when it hits the screw bosses at idle and some backlash when slowing down to lights. A long shot could be poor oil supply to your hydraulic tappets causing the clicking and banging as they go metal-to metal. Check oil pump and increase idle speed to 1100-1200rpm to get some oil pumping. Good Luck

How oil goes in the primary for 03 Buell firebolt xb9r


Stand the bike upright (use a swingarm stand or lean against a wall), then poor one quart of oil (I recommend Harley Formula+) into either of the windows on the primary cover. The oil should be just covering the bottom of the gear visible in the larger window.

You have to TUNE THE ECM FOR YOUR MODS. Just bolting on parts is a GREAT WAY TO MAKE YOUR ENGINE GO LEAN AND BLOW UP! It needs that additional fuel to make the power you want.
