Question about Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger Motorcycles
Clutch chatters, does not fully engage or dissengage at times, all clutch adjustments are per specs, could it be the bearings
Hi Sherry, The clutch adjuster screw is held in place by a bearing and the bearing is held in place by a c-clip or snap ring can't remember anyways there should be zero movement only rotation. These are parts that in my 35 years of wrenching I have never seen fail, but there is always a first time for everything. That being said its more likely that 1 or 2 of the 3 ball bearings that are located between the inner and outer ramp of the clutch release mechanism has fallen out. It can happen easily if you are not carefull when you have the primary cover off. Normally the mechanism is held in place on the inside of the primary cover with a c-clip or snap ring. Once it's removed thats when you can loose a ball or two. I would drain the primary, inspect the drain plug magnet for large metal chunks, pull the primary cover and look for missing ramp balls and or c-clips and snap rings. grab the clutch pack and see if has abnormal movement either in and out or up and down. Clutch hub nut could have loosened but highly unlikely. Good luck
