That noise may be coming from your primary, not the tranny. Try adjusting the clutch, and (of course) make sure you have the correct amount of chaincase fluid in your primary. If that doesnt do it Change the trans fluid and see if that helps

    The '06 dyna did not have dowels on the trans housing to locate the inner primary to. This causes the inner primary bearing and race to prematurely wear. 2 solutions. Replace the trans case and inner primary housing or, Replace the bearing and race and center the shaft in the bearing before tightening the inner primary bolts. Good luck.

What is a voic box on a cobra 29 ltd? What is a good antt combo four a 29 ltd?


Cobra's LTD 29 model Citizen's Band radio features the full 40 channels allowed and a heavy-duty microphone. The radio provides 4 watts of AM radio frequency output with a switchable automatic noise limiter and noise blanker. Other features include Cobra's Delta-Tune function. Making a Cobra LTD 29 hear and receive better involves making changes to the radio's settings, including the settings specific to this brand.
M/F Turn the switch labeled "NB/ANL, ANL, OFF" to the "ANL" position and try the transmission again if noise is affecting reception. "ANL" is an automatic noise limiter function and reduces noise caused by the vehicle's electrical systems and electronics.

M/F Switch to "NB/ANL" to activate the noise blanker, which may also reduce noise if you continue to have problems. It's an RF noise filtration function and will help with ignition noise.

M/F Adjust the "RF Gain" knob by turning it clockwise to increase gain in weak signal areas if you have problems hearing radio traffic.

M/F Set the "Delta-Tune" function to capture a more listenable signal and get rid of adjacent channel noise. Rotate the knob labeled "Deltatune" to the center position for best tuning. Try micro-adjustments to the left or right as well.

M/F Turn the volume up if you still can't hear and as with any CB radio, adjust the squelch if the radio is noisy when there's no traffic. Turn the knob labeled "Squelch" all the way to the left to receive all signals, including noise and turn the control clockwise until the background noise stops. You will be able to hear the strongest transmissions without having to listen to weak signals and noise.

Background noise similiar to a flurscent light bulb. How do I get rid of it?


A common problem is background noise if you did any of these silly things:
1. Keep handsets away from microwave ovens, computers, remote control toys, wireless microphones, alarm systems, intercoms, room monitors, flurscent lights, or electrical appliances.
2, You have to move to a different location of your house & I bet ya it decreases the background noise.
3. Remember its a cordless phone and needs clear signal to and from answering machine because thats what is connect to the phone jack.
4. Try switching phone jacks.
5. I had similar problem but it was will all phones and found the telephone repair guy had crossed a neighbor's newly installed line with my line at the terminal by the street. Boy was I fuming mad.

Check your primary chain. Don't know if it is, my 07 used to do the same - feels like something hitting more on the left side.

1991 harley FXR won't start; replaced bad starter. it still won't start


- If the starter is turning the motor , I dont understand why u replaced the relay and the ignition....but - thats water under the bridge now .... Open the primary and check the jack shaft... put a pliers on it - pull it out and turn it 1/4 turn a few times - make sure its not binding. Take a look at the bushing on the outer primary.... may need to bevel the edges a little. Make sure the battery is charged enough to give the engine a few strong turns. Let me know what you find

Harley davidson how to change tensioners


If you have chain Tensioners then you have a Twin cam. This is NOT a job for an amature. Its necessary to take out Push rods which means remove heads or cut your pushrods and reinstall adjustables. You need to take out your cam plate,re align oil pump..Its not a simple job for a novice. If you have noise they have already exploded or are about to. Do not ride your bike..those plastic pieces can get sucked into the oil pump and do major damage. I told that to a customer that was going on a trip he did not heed warning. He got 75 miles they exploded and he bought a new motor.

Harley davidson how to change tenttionners


Is your bike STOCK?? Have the Cams been changed? Do you have Stock Cam CHAINS & TENSIONERS, or is it updated to GEAR DRIVEN Cams? Either way, you have a Cam and or Lifter Problem, and if you are not a Harley Mechanic with access to Shop type tools and Equipment, then I suggest you take you Harley to a reputable repair shop for diagnosis and repair. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RIDE WITH THIS PROBLEM, IT WILL NOT FIX ITSELF and will only cause you MORE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE. Good Luck! -Dr.Mark

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.
