    Hi everyone. I'm a new member with a possible problem. I have a FXDF Dyna Fat Bob. 1 year old with 2,500miles on it. Just recently, it's making a whirring sound under acceleration and decel. Noise goes away if i pull the clutch in.

    The engine is stock. Stage 1 upgrade on pipes, SE Air Cleaner and Dobek tuner. Primary oil changed at 1,500miles with HD recommended oil.
    Any advice will be appreciated
    Thanks

    You should have the self adjuster for the primary chain but sometimes they get lazy.

    Give this a try and if it doesn't work, you should take it back to the dealer under warranty.

    Like Glider said for the self-adjuster.

    On the "HD recommended oil" for the primary, engine and tranny - you may be using SYN3 in all of these applications. You will find a significant amount of discussion about lubricants for these applications here at HDTalking. In a nut shell however, you will probably get a majority recommending the following:

    Engine: Premium quality full synthetic 20W-50 oil - i.e., Mobil1 VTwin 20W-50, Amsoil 20W-50 Advanced Synthetic Motorcycle Oil

    Transmission (6-spd): Premium quality full synthetic 75W-90 or 75W-140 GEAR lube at least GL-1 - i.e., Spectro Heavy Duty Platinum 6-speed Transmission Oil, Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube, Royal Purple Max-Gear, Redline

    Primary Chaincase: Non-synthetic chaincase oil: HD Formula Plus, Spectro Heavy Duty Primary Chaincase Oil
