    Maybe the folks who have viewed this do not have the experience to judge the sound. ;) I'm sure someone will be along and let you know.

    I hope so. A few have PM'd me. Most say its a normal sound but I have had people on the street stop me and say "hey that don't sound too good bro". so I just need clarification.

    Recorded sounds are nearly impossible to diagnose. I did not hear anything that sounded out of the ordinary, but that's a guess. One thing I do know, your recorder is pretty good!

    Some gear clatter is acceptable, you have 4 cams fighting for clearances in there, have you checked your primary chain? Noises do travel

    Sounds like a sportster to me I would go and drag mine out of the shed and run it just to be sure but it is too cold too windy and too dark at the moment :( but sportsters do make some sounds of their own best thing to do if find another similar bike and compare the sound to be sure
