Unlike their lighter counterparts, Harley-Davidson uses big strong gears in their bikes. That's why transmission problems with Harley motorcycles are rare. But, the downside of this is that the clutch dogs in the transmission make more noise that the tiny little clutches in the other bikes. And, since you didn't tell me what year model bike we're talking about, some years "clunk" more than others. The early four speed transmissions in the 60's were notorious for it, But as the years moved on and Harley improved their transmissions, the later years are much less noisy than the early years. Still if your transmission is a late model and it is "clunking" more than you like, check the clutch adjustment to see if it's dragging. Also since you didn't advise me of the model and year, I cannot help you with this adjustment. If you'll look at the some of the answers that have been given out, I'm sure you'll find one that tells you how to adjust your clutch. If not, please repost and I'll answer that question.

Good Luck

What would cause my 26 inch avalon bicyle to make a clunking sound when shifting from low to high gear?And how do I fix it?


Are you going 1 gear at a time or trying to go from first to high. On some bikes you have to allow the chain go from one gear to the nest and up the line or it will make a noise.

I have a clunknoise from my transfer case how do i fix it


most of the time a clunk from under the vehicle when shifting gears (whether going forward or reverse) is a u-joint. check them at both ends of the drive shaft. (possibly 1 in the middle, not familiar with your particular truck)
