    I have a '81 sporty that has 1.75' drag pipes, s&s super E carb and air cleaner. I had to replace both 3rd gear sprockets 2 years ago because they both shattered. Then on my last rides last year it started making a nasty noise when in third gear. What could be causing my problems?

    check the primary gear along with the others for a missing tooth or a broken cog.
