Just joined the forum and wish I knew about this place when I bought my Road King last year. I think the first thing I would have done was replace the cam tensioners on this thing. Here is my story and why I feel sick to my stomach. Riding home last weekend, was about a mile out from the house. The oil light came on and I decided to ride it home. Then the pinging / clattering started, ran it this way not very long. Less than half a mile and turned the motor off in the nieghborhood. At this time, the bike will still start and run with a nasty clattering sound. No plans to start again until this is fixed. Were do I start on this project. From the readings in this forum, need to inspect the cam tensioners and see if they exploded and plugged up the oil pump. Sound about right? Maybe just start with draining the oil and see what it looks like and if there is any orange in it. As with most, I would prefer to not spend my money at a dealership. I am mechanically inclined and would prefer to fix myself. I just need some help and guidance. Appreciate your comments.
