ok, here goes. Ive got a 98 Sportster custom that I recently bought. Because of the snow and ice I havent been able to ride much so when I recently got goos weather I took advatage of it. Rode about 110 miles , came to a stop and while going from 2nd to 3rd it made a whining noise from the clutch area. The clutch and chain were adjusted per posts and manual and I could see no obvious problem from the clutch cover or chain inspection cover, so I pulled the primary cover for further inspection...Now Im puzzled..there is nothing obvious to me as to what the problem could be and Im to new to Harleys to know what to look for.. Please help as to what to look for or give me a direction to research. There was nothing broken in the bottom of the cover and the oil didnt smell burned.
