Your local shop is clueless..... my guess is when the stator was installed, the compensating sprocket was not torqued correctly

My new 1300 xjr racer has done900 miles and between 4500 to 5000 rpm there is a site buzzing or vibration feeling in the foot pegs any ideas the shop I got it from said this was normal


Hi, Neil sadly people don't always tell the truth it is not normal and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain is badly worn or links too tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect due to a poorly tuned engine.
7. Internal engine problem flywheels have shifted.
8. Broken frame.
9. Stabilizer links worn or loose.
10. Rubber mounts loose or worn.
11. Rear fork pivot shaft nuts loose.
12. Front engine mounting bolts loose.

How to change my stater


To change the starter on your Sporty, first disconnect the battery. Remove the exhaust system and anything else that it is the way of the starter. Take the battery cable off the starter. Then go to the left side of the bike and remove the foot peg and shifter. Loosen the lock nut on the primary chain tensioner on the underside of the primary. Turn the adjuster screw out a few turns. Take the derby cover off and remove the spring and lock nut on the clutch adjuster. Then drain the oil out of the primary by removing the plug on the underside of the primary. Remove the bolts that hold the primary on. As you pull the primary cover away from the engine, turn the clutch adjuster screw in the center of where the derby cover came off in a clockwise direction. The primary should come off as you turn the screw. Once the cover is off, lay it aside. Remove the two bolts located directly above the clutch assembly. They are different lengths so make sure you remember which goes where. Once these two bolts are out, the starter will come off.

Good Luck

I have a 75 flh with the passenger peg mounted to the primary inspection cover.is this stock. if not where do they mount


Yes, this is where the passenger foot peg on the left side of the bike goes. There is an arm that clamps onto the round stub on the inspection cover and is afjustable to almost any angle. The right side foot peg support bolts to the end of the transmission and also has an adfustable arm that clamps onto a stub on it. Then the pegs go on the end of the arms. Go to this site and take a look . http://www.bikebandit.com/1975-harley-davidson-flh-1200/o/m770#sch171752 I'm pretty sure they didn't move the peg brackets to the seat tubes of the frame until 1977. If your bike has two holes in a welded-on tab on the rear of the down tubes behind the primary and the transmission, you can use the later model peg brackets. But, if your bike has no holes in the frame or the swingarm for passenger peg brackets, this is the only style you can use and stay original. You could fabricate and weld on tabs to later model peg brackets or use clamp on brackets and pegs.


Good Luck

My bike has a very bad vibration when i let the cluch out, the more throdle the more vibration , i have allready change front motor mount ,realiegn motor with back tire, also replaced rear swing are mounts...


I'd have a look at the clutch assembly. Specifically, check the nut that holds the clutch assembly onto the mainshaft. You'll have to take the primary cover off and remove the snap ring from the center of the clutch assembly. The nut is behind the there. It has LEFT HANDED THREADS and torques to 60-80 ft. pounds. If the vibration stops with the clutch pulled in or the tranny in neutral, that's the giveaway. Look for something in that area. It could be the bearing in the inner primary or the bearing inside the final drive gear allowing the clutch assembly to vibrate.

Good Luck

Cbr 125r 05 vibration


Your camchain maybe worn resulting in chain slap when engine loaded when still cold, or some valve lap delay resulting in pinging or blowback. (coughing). A top end inspection may be required

This may effect the vibrations but is likely to be loose engine to frame mounts or loose steering head.

Check play of rear shock mounts top and bottom for any play. This would impact through the frame and tank, bars etc., but is more to do with road surface and speed.

Are the wheels balanced?

Thoroughly inspect ALL bolts (engine mounts, engine head bolts, pegs, handlebars, triple clamps, swingarm, exhaust header and muffler mounts) for tightness as vibrations are one or two steps away from tumbling down the tarmac. Vibrations are the main cause of bolts loosening......

Goodluck and Cheers.

Clutch cable broke at handle lever on 1979 harley davidson sporst


To change the clutch cable on you '79 Sporty, you'll have to take the outer primary cover off. To do this, you'll have to drain the oil from the primary, take the left side foot peg off, and loosen the primary chain adjuster on the bottom side of the primary. Loosen the locknut and use an allen wrench or hex key to screw the adjuster bolt downward.

If you need to know anything else, drop me a line at wd4ity@bellsouth.net

Then, remove the large "plug" towards the rear of the cover. Inside, you'll see something that looks like a nut but with no threads in it held in by a small spring. This the the lock nut, remove it. Below it is what looks like another nut with a slotted adjuster bolt sticking out. Remover the bolts from around the primary cover and break it loose from the engine. While turning the adjuster screw at the rear of the cover inward, remove the cover.

The cable connects to the cluch release mechanism. By turning the "link" downwards, you can disconnect it from the mechanism. Notice which way the "link" in attached to the release mechanism. Take the "link" off the end of the clutch cable.

Break the lock nut loose at the threaded cable adjuster on the outside of the case and screw the adjuster all the way out of the primary cover. Disconnect the cable at the handlebar lever and your cable is out.

Reinstall the new cable in the reverse order. When replacing the outer primary cover, make sure you use a new gasket on the cover as well as on the foot peg boss. The "foot peg boss gasket" is very important. You'll see an aluminum boss with a threaded rod sticking out of it that holds your left foot peg on. There is a round gasket that goes over this threaded rod and seals against the boss. If you leave this off, your bike will leak oil around this threaded rod when your foot peg goes on. Make sure you specifically ask for the "foot peg boss gasket" when you buy the new primary gasket. It's just a round gasket a bit larger than a quarter.

As you put the primary cover back on, there is a spring on the primary chain adjuster. Part of the spring is in the primary cover and the other part is in the engine. You'll see how it goes in. There is a large stud in that area that the outer primary cover slides up on. Adjust the tension on the primary chain by removing the "plug" at the top of the primary cover. You want 3/4" to 7/8" up and down play in the chain with the engine cold.

On the adjuster, as you're installing the outer cover, turn the ajuster screw back into the clutch release mechanism by turning the screw backwards. Once you have the outer primary cover completely installed, you must adjust the release mechanism. Adjust the screw inwards until you feel a resistance, then back the screw off about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn, insert the "lock nut" and spring, and install the "plug". Then, using the cable adjuster on the outside of the cover, adjust the cable. Add oil.

I get massive vibration under the driver floor when on movement...please advice


Hello , is the vibration constant or only under acceleration? Is it a 4x4 ? Check the torsion bar bushings. They should attach to the axle and then come up to your frame area right under the foot well. You should see a bushing of rubber , or nylon depending. There should be no gaps between the bolt and the bushing and no movement. Thank you , Quinn
