Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FXSTB Night Train
More than likely, it's either a loose primary chain or possibly the compensator sprocket. If the noise is at idle, this will probably be the case. Now, if the noise occurs when you roll the throttle on but goes away when just cruising, you may have a bottom end problem. If I were you, I'd disconnect the battery and pull the outer primary cover off. Check the torque on the compensator nut. It should be torqued to 150-165 foot pounds of torque. You'll need a "locking bar" to lock the engine and transmission to keep it from turning in order to apply that amount of torque. Check the adjustment of the primary chain. 3/4 to 7/8 inch with the engine cold. When you refill the primary with oil, do it with the bike standing straight up. Fill to the bottom edge of the outer clutch shell, the bright aluminum part.
