With the engine cold, remove the inspection cover from the outer primary cover. Reach in with your finger and push the primary chain up. You should have 3/4" to 7/8" slack with the engine cold. Adjust by loosening the nut on the adjuster inside the hole and move the shoe up to decrease the movement and down to increase it.

Good Luck
Steve

How to replace drive belt on a 1993 harley davidson heritage softail classic?


To remove a Softail drive belt FIRST remove the rear wheel then remove the primary chain, the clutch, the engine compensating sprocket, and the chain adjuster as an assembly, then remove the primary chaincase housing, place a support under the rear fork and engine, remove the pivot shaft and spacer, slip the drive belt off from the transmission sprocket.



To replace a Softail drive belt FIRST not that all belts, used or new, must never be formed into a loop smaller than 5.0 in. (130 mm), and must never be bent backwards because this can severely weaken the belt and cause premature failure if it, then install the belt over the transmission sprocket, install the pivot shaft and spacer, remove the support holding the engine and rear fork, install the primary chaincase housing, the primary chain, the clutch, the engine compensating sprocket, and the chain adjuster and the primary chaincase cover, fill primary the primary chaincase with oil, install the rear wheel, align the rear wheel and properly adjust the belt tension to the specified deflection.

2008 road king classic I have a tick sound on left side?


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.

Primary drive chain seems lose


Your Big Twin primary chain should have 3/4" to 7/8" up and down travel when the engine is cold. As the engine heats up, the aluminum expands and the chain should have 5/8" to 3/4" when hot. Take the inspection cover off to check the tension. If you have an adjustable primary chain tensioner, loosen the nut and lift the adjuster to tighten the chain.

Need to know how to adjust the primary chain on the harley davidson


Remove the small access plate on the primary cover. Inside you'll see the primary chain adjuster and shoe. Loosen the bolt and slide it up or down to adjust the chain. Moving the shoe up tightens the chain. Adjust the chain so that you've got between 5/8 and 7/8 in up and down movement at the middle of the upper run of the chain with the engine cold.

Good Luck

Adjust primary chain on a harley davidson motorcycle


after safely supporting rear wheel off ground, remove small inspection cover from primary cover. rotate rear wheel until primary chain is at tightest point. cold engine- chain free play should be 5/8" - 7/8", hot engine should be 3/8" - 5/8". to adjust, loosen primary chain adjuster shoe nut (bolt head is similar to a carriage bolt-square head), sometimes you will need to tap bolt end to free up adjuster, as it sits in grooces to hold at desired level. adjust to desired tension and tighten bolt to 22-29 ft/lbs. then recheck chain freeplay after rotating rear wheel at least one full revolution. If OK, reinstall cover.

I have a 01 ultra classic with a rattling sound coming from the lower left side of the engine. was told I might need to adjust the primary chain or the timing chain. any hints on what to check?


Does the sound come even when the bike is stalled and you accelerate it? If yes, then it must be timing chain and in case the noise comes only when the bike is moving, it must be the primary chain.
