So Blacktopper, my cousin Curtis and I were in Myrtle Beach last week for the Rally, and my bike started acting funny in two ways: the starter began clicking and whirring, and my clutch felt like it was dragging, and in Myrtle Beach, believe me you get a lot of chances to experience how the clutch performs while sitting at stoplights......clutch dragging hard, but strangely, it was easy to shift to neutral. Anyhow, both symptoms got worse as we worked our way home. The starter was unreliable. It would kick out or just whir, and we had to pull the bike to jump start it. Fortunately, we've learned, and Blacktopper always carries a 25 foot nylon rope.. Anyhow, finally we got the damn thing home after riding 300+ miles without stopping the engine. Tore it down today and this is what we found: For you non-mechanics, this is the backside of the bucket that holds all of your clutch plates. It's called the bearing carrier. I would love to know what you guys think would have caused this failure. Happily, Roger had a spare on the shelf was feeling generous, so he gave it to me. Easy to fix, and I suspect it will solve my starter problem as well. I am amazed that it got me home, but sustained running at 75 mph, smooth as glass.....I noticed the clutch was slipping a bit....otherwise all was good. It rubbed a little groove on the inside of the inner primary, but that's of no consequence. My cousin Curtis rode my '10 Street Glide, and it started running rich at low rpm...choking out...but ran great at road speed. With two bikes screwing up, I was ready to trade both at the nearest Honda Dealership...a great Service Manager named Chief at Appleton Harley in Clarkesville, TN explained it was my Power Commander beginning to fail....not too hard to fix. Should have Doggy barking tomorrow or the next day. After getting everything torn down to the inner primary and pulling the exhaust and all to get the starter out, re-assembly will take some hours.
