    If you go back to page 55 of the 2014 clack thread, you will find an audio I made. This was made after giving my local dealership a chance to talk with me and fix my clacking problem.

    I absolutely cannot stop riding my new Dark Horse but, there is a "valve like" clattering sound at around 2450 to 2600rpm seemingly out of the top end after the engine is warmed up while I am riding.

    Hello all, Ok I have heard it mentioned in a Motorcycle magazine review, and now there is a member on here who was complaining of excessive engine " valve" noise. I believe in the motorcycle magazine they referred to it as a brick being tossed about in a clothes dryer! There was also a...
