Question about 2001 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Are you sure it just came loose? More than likely, it broke. To find out, drain the primary oil and loosen the locknut at the cable adjuster on the outer primary cover. Turn the adjuster inwards as far as it will go. Remove the four screws on the derby cover. and lift it away from the primary cover. Remove the spring and the locknut.
Now, remove any footpegs or anything else that may be in the way of the removal of the outer primary. Loosen the locknut on turn the primary chain tensioner out on the bottom of the primary cover. Remove all the bolts from the primary.
Now, turn the clutch adjuster screw back at the derby cover in a clockwise direction and remove the outer primary cover. With the primary cover off, you can replace the cable if necessary or simply hook it back up.
Reassemble in reverse order. To adjust the primary chain, turn the adjuster bolt upwards until you have 1/2" to 5/8" up and down slack in the top run of the primary chain. To adjust the clutch, turn the screw counterclockwise until it stops. Then, go back clockwise 1/4 turn and install the locknut, spring and the derby cover. Then adjust the cable adjuster out until you have 1/8" freeplay in the cable.
