    o k, was going to remove the cover for primary drive chain to check the tension but the mechanic arrived and suggested that it may be a broken primary chain from engine to gearbox so took it to the shop and discovered that to be the case=broken primary chain.

Its your fuel pump if you can't hear it. And its inside your tank. Not a hard fix if you have a book that tells you how to remove it. Alot of procedures to follow to get it right. And yes it does work off a relay.

This is not normal under no circumstance should your drive belt rub!! If you didn't take it to a dealer do so, if you did see the service manager or owner!

Take the spark plugs out of the engine and see if the engine turns over then. If it does but the engine will not turn over with the plugs in it, have the battery checked. Never assume a battery is good because it's not very old.

If the engine will not turn over with the spark plugs out, it sounds like may have serious problems. In this case, I'd consult a professional mechanic.

You can repost if you find out more information for us to work from. Good Luck

What are the symtoms of a bad starter clutch


There is a bendix gear in the starter which is pushed out to the flywheel when the starter button is pushed. If you hear the starter spinning but the starter is not turning the engine over, the bendix gear is stuck. Rebuild the starter. If you do not hear the starter spinning, you have a wiring problem.

My 2006 road king Harley won't start after riding over a curb


You didn't describe the "click"

A series of rapid clicks means a low battery, or a bad (usually ground) connection, like if you crunched/abraded a wire along the lower frame when you drive over a curb.

A single, loud click indicates its a bad starter relay, about a $12 part:

Leaking oil from primary cover, I road my bike to work is it safe to ride it home . I checked the engine oil it's still full . and how hard is it to change this cover?


All old harleys leaked oil, so its no big deal. First try tightening all bolts to primary cover, they should be allen head, so you will need a allen wrench of correct size. To change gasket you will first need to remove floorboard to primary bolts, then all the allen bolts. Put a pan under to catch oil. scrape old gasket off and install new gasket with a small bit of rtv to hold it in place. Put everything back together.
