Question about Buell Blast Motorcycles
There is a large nut on a bolt under the left side of the motor under the shifter loosen the nut and tighten the bolt in. It requires you open the primary chain access door behind the left foor peg to do so. There should be 1/4-1/2" of play on the chain. This is a GREAT time to change the primary oil too. Make sure you use NEW Harley Primary oil too. It is a specific fluid for the primary.

Hello chopper...glad to see a Buell owner, sorry to hear you are having problems. I have a 2000 Thunderbolt.
When you adjusted your clutch did you adjust it both places..one behind the rubber boot for cable adjustment and the other behind the primary cover?
Also check inside your primary and look for anything that might be rubbing where it shouldn't. New noises are often caused by a new occurence. Also look for metal shavings in your primary fluid and make sure it's full.
Good luck...hope this helps

Either fuel filter is clogged or air filter is clogged or carb/fuel injectors need to be thuroughly cleaned

The primary chain adjustment has nothing to do with the clutch. Take the small upper inspection cover off the primary cover and use your finger to check the primary chain tension. It should have 3/8 to 1/2 inch up and down movement in the top run of the chain when the engine is cold. To adjust, loosen the lock nut on the primary chain adjuster on the bottom of the primary case. Turn the screw upward to tighten the chain, downward to loosen. Once set, tighten the locknut.
To adjust the clutch, loosen the clutch cable adjuster as much as you can. Remove the derby cover from the primary cover. Remove the spring and the locknut. Turn the adjuster screw counterclockwise as far as it will go. Turn it back in 1/4 turn and replace the lock nut and the spring. Replace derby cover. Adjust the clutch cable so that you have about a 1/8 inch play at the hand lever.
