Noise - Is it normal?

Let me start by saying that this is my first Harley.
13 RGC -
I dont recall this happening when I got it so Im curios if its just wear or something came loose...

Whenever I shift Gears I hear a slight clank when I pull the Clutch lever in... I hear a clank when I throw into gear (any - and I think this part is normal) but also hear a slight clank when I release the clutch - BTW i hear the clank on pull and release even if I don't switch gears... Also...
If I'm cruising .. and I release the throttle I hear a clank and it i hit the throttle to continue the cruise after real ease.. I hear a clank...
Dealer stated it was normal ,... stated "compensator in Primary" would have a slight lag so when "Gears" engage it will male the noise..
I dont recall hearing till after they did 500 mile tune and went to Synthetic...
BTW.. it all seems to be coming from inside the Primary...
Anyone have any Ideas... Could it be something Got loose?

Appreciate any feedbacks

Just had mine in fr that same noise but it was all the time. My compensator bolt came loose and f'd up the bearing in there. Thank god for extended warranty. Total bill would have been 1100.

I am by no means a wrench, but IMO you could call bullshit on your dealer. It's not normal IMO. Again I am not a wrench, but I would get a second opinion from either another dealer or a reputable independent.

I agree with the BS call I have a 13 RGU and have no Clanks cept sometimes when it goes into gear that would be normal but not when you engage the clutch. However I am also no wrench but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

I agree with Rowdy and bombdog, I say take it back to the dealer, or have a different dealer check it.

I would pull your primary cover and check the clutch adjustment. Loosen your clutch cable. Pull the cover. Loosen the jam nut in there using a alan wrench and an open socket. Then tight the alan just until it touches and meets resistance then loosen a 3/4 turn. Tighten the jam nut back up and replace primary and readjust clutch lever. See if this helps. Plenty of vids on the you tube if you don't understand what i just said.
