No, it shouldn't cause any damage as long as you don't abuse the bike. I wouldn't be doing any burnouts or drag racing it until I got this repaired. Make sure you get it into the dealer before the warranty expires though.

Good Luck
Steve

How to replace a clutch drum on an 09 Electra glide


Pull primary cover and then pull primary chain adjuster and compensator and clutch and chain out and then remove six metric bolts and remove clutch pressure plate and discs and then replace hub and bearing assembly and replace clutch disc and pressure plate etc as you took them apart. Might not cost that much more to simply buy a whole new clutch assembly and have it all new. You will need a bar to lock the primary and compensator together when you loosen and when you tighten the retaining fasteners.

Tighten compensating sprocket bolt to 100 ft-lbs (135.7 Nm) and then reverse the drive locking tool and loosen the bolt one full turn and then reverse the locking tool again and tighten the bolt to a final torque of 140 ft-lbs (190.0 Nm). Install the locking tool again and tighten the clutch hub mainshaft nut to 70-80 ft-lbs (94.9-108.5 Nm).
After the compensator and clutch fasteners have been torqued Install the primary chain tensioner and tighten the fasteners to 15-19 ft-lbs (20.3-25.8 Nm).

Noise in primary


You'll have to remove the primary cover in order to see inside. I would check the compensating sprocket nut. They have a tendency to loosen up for some reason, and that causes a strange noise. Check that first. Second, check to make sure your automatic chain tensioner is working properly. We've had some in the shop that ran the chain too tight, causing a loud whining noise.

Very load chain sounds coming from left side of engine, could hear this when new, brought back to dealer several times they said it was normal since then i have 25,000 miles on it and the noise is much...


Now, I'll address the primary chain but the warranty is between you and your dealer. From my experiences with the dealers, don't get your hopes up though. Now, find the drain plug on the bottom side of the primary back near the derby cover. Drain the primary. If you have to take the shifter and the floorboard off to get the primary cover off, do so. Then take the bolts out of the primary and take the cover off. You'll have to take the bolts out of the oval inspection cover to get the primary off. Remove the bottom bolt and the rear bolt of the inspection cover. Once you get the cover off, look for anything obviously wrong in there. If the primary has a conventional chain tensioner, check the up and down movement in the top run of the chain. It should have 3/4 to 7/8 inch up and down play with the engine cold. If the chain has an automatic adjuster in it, the chain will be tight. Look to see if you see anything that the chain might be rubbing. Look at the underside of the inner primary at the top just above the engine sprocket for signs of rubbing. See if the chain is running in the middle of the tension shoe at the bottom of the primary.

Good Luck

Riding today and at 35 to 45mph slaping noise from primary chain area took off cover found chain very tight adjusted rerode bike now making noise a 55 to 60mph what do you think it due for 20k service.


If your bike is equipped with the newer self tensioning primary chain adjuster, it should have felt tight. This type of tensioner keeps the chain tight by using primary oil in the tensioner. I'd take it to the dealer for service if it's due.

I have a knocking noise under the primary cover that comes and goes ~ any suggestions as to what it is????


It's probably the compensator sprocket. Drain the primary and take the cover off. Check to make sure the engine sprocket nut is not loose. It should torque to 150-165 foot pounds. Check the adjustment of the primary chain. In the middle of the top run, it should have 5/8 to 7/8 inch up and down travel when the engine is cold.

The compensator has a "spring cup" on the outside where the nut is. If you can turn this cup by hand when the nut is tight, the springs inside of it have lost their tension. The cup must be replaced.

Good Luck

Need 2 replace clutch on my 2001 softail duece


Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.
