New primary rattle

I'm sure it's on the forum somewhere but I can't seem to find it. After riding about 70 miles today when I stopped at a light in gear with clutch pulled in there was a terrifying noise coming from the primary. Same thing at the next stop but dropped into neutral let go of the clutch and nothing. Any experience or guesses before I haul it to the shop? 2011 RGU. Thanks.

Some people thought my Woods TW-6H made terrifying noises... me not so much. Define terrifying. Rattle? Screetch? Grinding?

Shifter shaft ?

My shifter shaft rattles and makes noise, just needs to be greased and adjusted. Could this be what you're hearing ?

The nut on your engine compensator is loose. Take into the dealer for repairs.

But it's quiet when in neutral and clutch out. I'd expect a loose comp nut to make same noise either way, then again haven't really thought of that before.

Haul it in. ASAP I had terrifying noise and it turned out to be the 6th gear (bearings pitted).

Garage
Saaaaaaame noise came from my new 2012 fltrx with about 1100 miles on the clock. It ended up being the bolt that holds the cam plate in place. I actually had it let go while riding to the dealer, dealer said "ride it here, if it breaks it's under warr. and we'll come get you" so about 2 mi. from my house the motor seized. Caused minor damage to anything really, only destroyed the timing cover, replaced under warr. along withe new cam's and pushrods under warr. too! So I went with the SE254E cam's got them installed for free too with adj. pushrods, couldn't be happier, happend becuas MOCO didn't put thread locker on my cam plate bolt. I don't mind, worked out great in the long run. With my setup I run away from stock 103's easily! and CVO's lol

New primary rattle

Definitely on the primary side. The shifter arm is a noise I've gotten used to when I swapped it out. I had read about the compensator nut and was leaning that way. First thought the radio was going freaky. Then started looking for parts falling off. Sounds like a stealer trip.

If my memory serves me right you might have the old style comp.
And it will look like this after awhile.
