    My 2009, standard, Heritage Softail Classic (18,000 kms) makes an almighty clattering noise when it starts. I expect some noise but this seems excessive.

    Also, I seem to be crashing through the gears, no matter how gentle i try to change.

    Does any one have any suggestions before I take her in to the dealership?
