Not much of a diagram as the chain merely runs around the compensator, over a chain adjustment device and around the clutch basket sprocket and back to the compensator.

SOURCE: Jota primary chain

is anyone able to confirm this as it looks a little fragile. You sometimes find 2 single chains on Laverda twins and triples. I never heard that Laverda used them instead of the triple chain to cope with any problems. The version I've heard is that the triple chain has not been available for some years. Therefore the 2 single chains were used. Though I never heard of the 2 single chains crashing i personally prefer the triple version. ,,

SOURCE: My primary chain /clutch cover has no o ring, but

The flat gasket is the new "replacement" gasket for the O-ring. But, to tell the truth, I run both the O-ring and the flat gasket. Never a leak. Good Luck, Steve

SOURCE: disassemble the clutch so I can install new primary chain

Isn't there a big nut in the middle of the clutch pack? Also I am not sure, it might be a left-handed one, check the threads first.

SOURCE: primary chain hitting case on

The primary chain adjustment has nothing to do with the clutch. Take the small upper inspection cover off the primary cover and use your finger to check the primary chain tension. It should have 3/8 to 1/2 inch up and down movement in the top run of the chain when the engine is cold. To adjust, loosen the lock nut on the primary chain adjuster on the bottom of the primary case. Turn the screw upward to tighten the chain, downward to loosen. Once set, tighten the locknut.

To adjust the clutch, loosen the clutch cable adjuster as much as you can. Remove the derby cover from the primary cover. Remove the spring and the locknut. Turn the adjuster screw counterclockwise as far as it will go. Turn it back in 1/4 turn and replace the lock nut and the spring. Replace derby cover. Adjust the clutch cable so that you have about a 1/8 inch play at the hand lever.

Good Luck
Steve

Hi, George 2 & 3 do not apply and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch controls improperly adjusted.

3. Primary chain badly misaligned.
4. Clutch discs warped.
5. Insufficient clutch spring tension.

How to replace the starter on a 2002 harley


Pretty entailed job. Not like a car.
You will need to remove the primary and possibly the clutch basket/ starter ring gear to access an internal fastener holding the starter to the inside of the inner primary.
Will probably need a primary cover gasket and a quart of synthetic (klotz 80-90) primary chain case lube.
While you're in there you should probably check & adjust primary chain tension and the Delrin shoe the chain rides on.
Completely drain the old primary lube, don't mix old with new, the thing only takes 18-22 ozs (so okay, maybe you need 1.3 qts).
Consider the different kW starters available and get the one that best suits your needs (is the motor built? high use? etc...) Terry components makes great components with WARRANTIES!!
Gasket $20-$25, klotz fluid $16-$20.
Starter drive clutch $35 to $100+.
Starter $380- $490 and up
Also jack-shaft assemblies, ring-gears, etc...$50, $80, $$$$$
Finally; if you have a large displacement or built motor you should have compression releases. Use them religiously.

Install stator


In order to install a stator on a Harley. You have to disconnect the battery and remove the outer primary. Then you have to remove the primary chain assembly, the clutch and the compensator nut and ramps to get to the rotor. Once you remove the rotor you'll see the stator. Compensator nut is 150 ft/lb. The clutch is 45 ft/lbs. The comp nut is standard thread while the clutch basket nut is left handed threads.

How do i remove the clutch basket on a 1988 fxrs


Now, if you wish to remove the clutch as a unit, disconnect the battery. Drain the primary case. Remove the primary cover. Take the compensator sprocket nut off. Take the nut off the primary chain adjuster. Now, take the snap right out of the clutch release plate and remove the plate. You'll have to take the nut off the mainshaft that holds the clutch assembly on. It has LEFT HANDED THREADS. Then you need a puller to get the clutch assembly off the tapered shaft, Custom Chrome 20269, $30 and a "locking bar" to keep the engine from turning while you torque the nuts, Custom Chrome 20825,$26. You can then disassemble the clutch and you'll need a press to press the inner clutch hub out of the outer clutch hub.

Then compensator sprocket nut torques to 150-165 foot pounds and the clutch mainshaft nut torques to 60-80 foot pounds LEFT HANDED. Put one line of Loctite 271 red in each nut. You will need a torque wrench that will torque in the reverse direction. All torque wrenches won't do that.

Good Luck

Can not get clutch chain off i need to pull out the tranny 3rd gear is slipping its a 77 sportster


I assume you're talking about the primary chain. To get the primary chain off, you must remove the compensator sprocket from the engine shaft and disassemble the clutch, which takes a special tool to compress the clutch spings, and remove the outer clutch basket. The outer clutch basket is held on by a large nut on the inside that has left-handed threads on it. Once you have all that off, you can remove the four "trapdoor" bolts and pry the transmission out.

Good Luck

How to replace primary chain on a 1999 softail custom


This will be quite an involved process, just to let you know. If you have a motorcycle lift or can borrow one it makes things so much easier.
The first thing to do is drain all the oil out of your primary. Next remove the bolts from the primary, noting which ones went where as there are short and long bolts. Next under neath the primary is the adjustment for the chain tensioner. Loosen the jam nut, then unscrew the adjuster. Remove the primary cover gently, you may have to tap on it with a rubber hammer to get it loose. While removing be careful not to pull the 2 pins out of the inner primary, the are for alignment. Now you need to remove all the gasket material from the primary and the inner primary. Remove the retaining clip off you clutch hub. This is the one right where your clutch adjustment is. Once removed just pull your adjuster nut and adjuster threaded shaft out. Okay here is the fun part, in order to remove the chain you must remove both the front sproket and the rear clutch basket, etc. But before you can do this you must lock the chain from moving, Harley makes a tool for this or if you are very careful and I do mean very careful, you can take a large screwdriver and wrap it in an old T-shirt, place the wrapped screwdriver between the chain and top of the clutch sprocket. You must always lock the top of the chain NEVER the bottom. Okay the nut on your clutch assembly is reverse threaded, so while the chain is locked you turn the nut clockwise to loosen. Once lossened go to the front sprocket and repeat process, this nut is standard thread, and on tightly. Loosen this nut, then go to your chain tensioner and loosen the nut holding it on, and lower it as far as possible. remove both the nuts from the front sprocket and clutch. On the front sproket there are some items you just pull off the shaft and leave the sprocket. Note the order of removing. Okay now pull both the front sprocket and the clutch off at the same time avoiding the chain tensioner.
Now this is just advice not a must do. Inspect your sprockets for wear, if they need replacing by all means replace them...yes they are expensive...so are tow trucks! Also on some 1999-2000 models the OEM chain tension could and would fail, this doesn't make for a bad day, but a REALLY bad week! My point for about a $100 you can replace the OEM tension with the Harley auto adjusting one.
Now you are ready to replace the chain and put the sprockets back on. You should use the red loctite(sp?) on both nuts, your front nut should be tighten to 150-165 ft./lbs and the rear 50-65 ft./lbs check that number for the rear before you put it back together I may be incorrect. Once you have those tightened up put your chain tension back in the proper position. Now would be a good time to make the adjustment. Place you clutch retaining plate and adjuster, then put the retain clip back in, adjust clutch. Replace gasket for primary, install primary, remove inspection plate, put oil in, bolt plate back on.
Start it up, check for leaks, all cool, get some time in the wind.
Hope this helps,

JP

I am install forward controls on my 2005 Dyna. I need to remove the chaincase; do I need to remove the clutch?


OK ... I dont know what kinda kit u have - But I'll answer your question . As u know - there is an inner and outer primary. U can of course remove the outer primary without removing the clutch basket. But if u need to remove the entire primary, you'll have to remove the primary chain and the clutch, as well as the compensating sprocket, and that is a huge job.... I have installed many forward controls and have never had to even open the primary ... Usually, all u need to do is change out the shift rod.... I wouldnt attempt this without a shop manual - good luck

Oil pro


Rivera pro-clutch is the best clutch to buy. The initial cost hurts a little but you'll be very happy with the results. As far as oil or dry. I had oil and wished I had belt, only because the primary wasn't made to hold oil, so It leaked. No matter how much I tried it still leaked. If you go with oil you only need the oil to touch the teeth on the bottom of the basket. The oil will sling around more then you can imagine.

No power to the wheels


ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it
