Lack of metal in the oil does necessarily indicate lack of excessive engine wear. If the rattle is coming from the engine it could be a wrist pin, main bearing, or a number of other causes. But, try loosening the drive chain and check to make sure that the drive chain itself is running parallel and lube it real well. This may or may not help the situation.

I have a 2001 harley ultra classic. I have a tinging, pinging noise on the right side of the motor at idle, but not all of the time. What could this be?


The first thing i would check would be the oil level, then do a compression check. If both are okay. then you may have a loose valve or a possible timing chain guide that is worn.

Check your oil for metal particles. Is your oil level correct? You may have ground the innards to death.

My 1999 HD Superglide has 48,000 miles on it and I just had new cam shoes installed last fall. My problem is when you put the bike in gear, it makes a God-awful metal on metal grinding noise. What do you...


Does the grinding noise stop once you get the transmission in gear? if so, you may need to adjust your clutch. To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. It should be near the downtubes of the frame in front of the engine. Slide the boot up or down to expose the adjuster and loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster barrel inwards getting a good deal of slack in the clutch cable. Then, stand the bike up fairly straight and remove the derby cover from the primary. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster screw in the center of it. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DESTROY YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. Once you feel the pressure, back off on the screw 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down tight. Replace the derby cover. Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about 1/8 inch freeplay in the lever at the pivot. Lock the lock nut down tight and replace the protective cover. Also, make sure that the oil in your primary is not too high. With the bike standing straight up, the oil should be just to the bottom edge of the outer clutch drum, the bright aluminum ring on the outside of the clutch assembly. If it's too high, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Riding today and at 35 to 45mph slaping noise from primary chain area took off cover found chain very tight adjusted rerode bike now making noise a 55 to 60mph what do you think it due for 20k service.


If your bike is equipped with the newer self tensioning primary chain adjuster, it should have felt tight. This type of tensioner keeps the chain tight by using primary oil in the tensioner. I'd take it to the dealer for service if it's due.

Good Luck

How to adjust a 9460897 mtd snow blower auger clutch cable.


On the handle end (usually) of the cable is a curved metal connector. Attached to the connector is a threaded rod with a nut. Attach a pair of pliers to the threaded cylinder that the threaded rod goes into. Loosen the nut. Turn the threaded cylinder into the threaded rod to tighten or out to loosen. When you have the correct adjustment, tighten the nut back down onto the cylinder. To be correctly adjusted, pull the cover off the auger belt and push down on the handle. The spring attached to the cable at the pulley end should stretch out when the handle is fully depressed. Spring tension keeps the belt tight. iaff801.jpg

Rattles at low reves only


THE RATTLING YOU HEAR AT LOW R'S IS MORE THAN LIKELY THE CAM CHAIN RATTLING. THE CHAIN TENSIONER IS ADJUSTABLE TO A DEGREE BUT A BIKE OF THIS AGE(IF OVER SAY 10000 MILES) MAY NEED A NEW CHAIN TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEM. LOOSE CHAIN CAN CAUSE CAM TIMING TO VARIATE CAUSING A SLIGHT MISFIRE.
THIS MISFIRE COULD ALSO BE THE RESULT OF DIRTY CARBS. IF SO THEY WILL NEED CLEANING AND SYNCING.

CHAIN AND BAR KEEPS LOOSENING UP AFTER 3 TO 4 CUTS. RESET TENSION AND BAR AND LOOSENS AGAIN AFTER 3 TO 4 CUTS.


Are you holding the nose of the bar up as you tighten the bar nuts?
You loosen the bar nuts and gravity pulls the bar down. You check the chain and the tension is correct, tighten bar nuts. Begin a cut and the bar slowly moves upward (no matter how tight the bar nuts) and the chain becomes slack.
19d6408.gif Chain adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system.
One more likely possibility, is the chain isn't being oiled.
Checking chain lubrication
Aim the tip of the bar at a light colored surface about 20
cm (8 inches) away. After 1 minute running at 3/4 throttle
you should see a distinct line of oil on the light surface. HTH

Engine noise


and it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,
