  • Primary chain jump

    Bike is making one hell of a noise and think it is the primary chain is stretched and jumping teeth only under a load on taking off. Anybody ever had this. It is a 2005 Roadstar 1700 with about 80,000 miles on it. Chain and gears look good but chain has a bit more slop it than I would like. Only in first and second gear on take off and a little on deaccelertion. I need any help I can get.

    I'd say your primary drive pulley is probably loose.

      No I checked that and it is ok. Thats what I first thought it was. Thats why I went to the other side. It is like a ratcheting sound on acceleration.

        You ran it without oil for a time, this is the result I guess, time to change a few parts.

        Can't be saved... There's nothing to adjust there. Replacement of the chain and sprockets is your only option... It need not be too pricey. They're available on eBay! I change my chain case gear oil with a Mobil 1 Synthetic after every other riding season. It always comes out clean, but... have you ever felt how hot that case cover gets?!?!? Regardless of what gear oil you're using, there's plenty of driveline friction inside that power transfer case!

          Not to mention a tank full of hot engine oil sitting on top of it. Plenty of thermal conduction going on there.

          It's what we do best here, isn't it?

            The parts came in today and the bike is back on the road. And I am as happy as a pig in mud.

              Nothing feels better than having your bike back on the road. Glad you are rolling again.
              I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.
