    Sure thing I would appreciate the pics. Sorry for the miscommunication on my end. Just having trouble understanding the measurement method along with my options after figuring out it's un aligned. (That is to say if it is un aligned) .. My email is [email protected]

    thanks for the info! I measured the best I could with what I could.. Seem to be a little confused but here is what I did.. I used a straight edge and measured the chain distance past the inner primary edge from the comp side and the clutch side.. (I made sure the chain was not shifted differently on each sprocket) .. On the comp side It measure about 1-1.5 mm ... And the clutch side it seemed to measure about 2-2.5 mm.. And this is how much the chain is sticking out past the primary edge on each side.. I am just confused on if I am measuring this correctly... Let's say that I did measur it correctly, what would be my next step? And if this was the case, what is the outlook? What should I expect next? The bike only has 21,000 miles. Thank you very much for all the info!! Much appreciated

    Hello RIPSAW, names is rich.. And I found a post which I believe I could relate to... I have an 09 street glide and installed baker attitude adjuster on her.. The whine I had it gone but I seem to have a little bit more of a problem. I popped outer primary cover off yesterday after a test drive and noticed metal dust in primary fluid (which wasn't in original fluid drain before I did the job) I noticed the chain can move side to side quite a bit and actually rub up against the side of the new tensioner which doesn't seem right.. Could my comp sprocket and clutch sprocket be un aligned making the chain run at an angle? Could the chain be stretched from the auto adjuster being in there making it run too tight for too long? Thank you in advance if you have any info or advice!

    Hello Ripsaw,
    You said you have a recipe for eliminating that annoying "Clank" when shifting in first gear? Can you tell me your secret, please.
    Your response will be greatly appreciated

    Thank you very much for the help with my cam tensioner dilemma. I think I'll do just that. I'll look over the intel on how to check the oil pump and will get new tensioners and inner cam bearings as well.

    Do you have a specific brand of tensioner and cam bearing that you like to use? I was thinking INA bearings from Georges Garage.

    Hey Ripsaw. I am jumping onto that wiring issue that I posted a week or so ago.. so I had the battery load tested at two different places, they both say the battery is ok. One place load tested it and it came up fine. As I said before, I had to push the bike home, would get it started with the solenoid push starter button and then ride for a bit and the bike would die. About the fourth time it wouldn't start and i just push the bike the rest of the way. Today I took all the ground wires off and cleaned them and re-installed them with some die-electric grease. Still nothing. When I turn the bike on, my volts gauge only registers 10 volts. And when I push the starter button I get "one click" and that is it, nothing after that. To me 10 volts showing on the gauge isn't enough to get the bike to start. I have a 107 high compression motor with compression releases. So after cleaning the negative side, nothing changed. Now when I use the plunger on the solenoid the bike fires up but only runs for about 10 seconds and then quits. Could that be because the battery is actually pooched, even though the tests came back as ok? Any help would be great. I am thinking of getting an other battery from Battery Mart. This one is only about 1 year old. Also there is a new 1.4 watt starter on the bike and a new starter relay.
