Taught but you can still defect it a little, any tighter than that it'll ruin the bearings and the chain too. Some peaple adjust them by sound but you'll find that's pretty tight.

Chances are either the nut on the compensating sprocket is loose or the primary chain is loose.

Does it sound like a chain noise, coming from the primary case?

In 2007, Harley changed the primary chain tension adjuster to an "automatic", spring loaded one, that doesn't work very well.

You can bolt in an older manual adjuster, BUT the area that USED to be an inspection/access cover on the outer primary cover is now a solid area, so you'd have to remove the outer primary cover everytime you adjust the primary chain.

There are some aftermarket "automatic" adjusters out on the market.

I know how to set the thumb cruise control on my 2001 Road King Classic, but how does it release without backing the screw off by hand?


You answered your own question. Its technically not supposed to be used as a "cruise control". Its primary function was/is to hold a steady idle speed during "warm-up". It is simply a manual screw in = "on" and screw out/release the tension for "off".
