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.

SOURCE: 2004 buell blast clutch popping noise when it,s released.

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

SOURCE: primary chain hitting case on

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.

Good Luck
Steve

1. Wheels and/or tires worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.

2005 xbr1200 primry oil is comin out of cluch cable at the adjuster cable nuts,primry chain went really tight after oil change and oil is spiting out exsaust.back fires after plugs were changed the bike...


There is ALOT of questions here - what oil did they change? The primary chain(transmission oil) or the engine oil? Did they adjust the primary chain? They might have drained the primary oil out and not put more back in - you might be running a dry primary - causing HUGE damage. THe engine could be working trying to turn the trans that has no lubrication. - of course they could have over filled the oil on your bike and it is forcing it\'s way into the combustion chambers and into the exhaust too.

How do you get the primary cover off what is the trick?


As both a Harley and a Buell owner, slacken off the primary chain adjuster and drain the oil.
Release the clutch, unscrew the outer screws and carefully use a plastic mallet to aid removal if needed.
