It will be hard to shift or find neutral if the clutch isn't adjusted right. check your adjustment first.

Clunking and banging combined with a slip feeling coming from the front left side of my primary

depending upon your model (sportser or big twin ) the primary chain should be checked for adjustment around every 10,000 miles big twin adjustment is as follows disconnect neg. cable from battery jack and level remove shift lever if necessary remove inspection cover ( replace gasket and o-ring ) also do this with bike at room temp. with rear tire in air turn rear wheel shifting into top gear turn wheel while pushing on change find tightest point on change chain deflection should be 3/8 to 5/8 move adjuster to needed position

I have a 92 fat boy and the relay is clicking under the seat but no starter. was able two jump start it by pushing it down the street and popping the clutch in 2nd gear

Solenoid. Starter motor won't turn until the solenoid has fully extended the bendix into the starter ring on the clutch hub.

Of course, you could just always park on a hill :) Old school solution - will extend your battery life!

Good luck.

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

Neutral on my Harley

be blessed you have a 2002 as you can easily access the tranny unlike the new ones where you have to pull the engine and split the cases, what was harley thinking??? my first guess would be the pawl carrier springs. when in gear, the shift forks sorta take up some slack but you still should notice a little more than usual with the bad pawl springs. when in neutral no gears are meshed so notible slack will be present and the neutral switch will find it more difficult to turn on because of the wider area. if you have problems shifting, the more serious problems can be calling. if you are handy, you can repair this yourself.

1994 harley softtail custom just bought it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think its whats called the commutator which is the contacts inside of the solenoid on the starter and they need to be cleaned. I've hung around a shop for years and have seen it a million times. Cant guarantee thats the problem but its a good place to start with the sounds of the problem.

No power to the wheels

ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it
