Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 R Sporster Roadster Motorcycles
You need to get local help from someone with HD experience. My guess is that you will need to investigate that area of the transmission and look carefully at thrust washers, bearings etc which may reveal a cause. Look at any HD forums or owners clubs in your area. It may be a common thing that's easily fixed. A workshop manual would be a start to show you what to expect.

Glider, had this post on clutch adjustment by the book... http://www.hdtalking.com/transmission_clutch_and_primary/853-clutch_adjustment_by_the_book.html Also go to the general maintenance info on Clutches…

Bleed your slave cylinder on the sprocket cover and refill the hydraulic fluid. If you have any leaks you will get air in the system and it will not fully disengage the clutch. As for the 750, they have cable clutches and you just need to adjust the slack of the cable.

Had this same problem with my wife's 2004 XL1200C. Took it to the dealer and they discovered the batt cable was just a little loose. They tightened it and we've had no problems with that since...that was 2 yrs ago.

You probably have warped steel plates. When you change clutches you should always change both plates and springs. You could also have weak springs.

Fuel pumps work by pressurizing the fuel and sending it to the engine. A low fuel level can cause the engine to work much harder to build the necessary pressure to pump the fuel. To analyze the problem, start the car when the fuel is low (below one-fourth tank) and listen for the sound. If the whine is audible, fill the tank immediately. When you start the vehicle again, the whine should be reduced or absent. If not, there may be another problem.
The whining noise may be caused by a damaged fuel pump. The fuel pump may be punctured or dented, reducing its efficiency. To resolve this issue, the fuel tank must be accessed and repaired or removed. The location of the fuel tank depends on the construction of the vehicle. In a vehicle equipped with a carburetor, the fuel pump is often located outside of the fuel tank. With a vehicle that has a fuel injector, the fuel pump is located inside of the tank. It is best to get a mechanic to address this problem.
