I have a 89 883 sporty, recently been getting a lot of noise from the primary. I adjusted the primary chain, drained and replaced the fluid. I noticed the noise was still there so pulled the primary cover off it and found two small chips of cast metal, look to me from the chain hitting the primary cover. After i cleaned it up threw it all back together the noise is still there, could it be my transmission making the noise now? Any help or advice would be appreciated.6424464245

... Say....

While you was in there by any chance you grabbed a hold of the clutch basket and gave it the old shake test...???

The L84 to 90 Sporties was super bad about the bearings getting sloppy and letting the magnets of the rotor hit the stater....

Be something to look at, being it is a weak link in the chain on those models...

Hmmm if it was the magnet hitting the stator would it do it in neutral? This issue only seems to occur while in gear.

That's a good question....

When your in gear a load is on the basket...Pulling at it to the motor sprocket... When in neutral, no load, just floating so to speak...
There are a few bearings in play that could let the basket walk... Bearing in the trap door, a few in the clutch gear and the one in the clutch basket...
All of those control the wobble....

For no more trouble that it takes to have a look .... Think it would be highly advisably to do so....

(It's not pretty when the magnets get's knocked off the drum... All hell breaks loose in there..!!!)
