This is the second starter I've installed on the bike. The first replacement sheered 2 teeth of a gear off inside the unit and broke the connection to the coil so I had to get another. After installing the first starter though, when it ran the whole 3 times I had it going, it ran like a champ with the clutch released. No noise at all. Even took it out for a couple rides in the neighborhood, but never got past third gear. The bike has power. I replaced the ignition coils, cdi, and rectifier. I also just put a new gas pump on her because the last one was leaking a lot of gas through the weep hole. With this information, we sure it couldn't be the starter sprocket sitting a little wonky on the chain?

The starter has no connection to anything that would be affected by the clutch.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

Ok, I though that maybe if it was the primary chain that connected to the starter then that info about me swapping the starter might have helped.

No the starter chain is stationary unless the starter is turning, it is not the primary chain. Also disregard all mention of splines, if it is not in gear with the rear wheel turning that is NOT the problem.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

If I had to bet I would bet it has a problem with a shift fork. I wouldn't bet much but that is where I would head after all the easy stuff is eliminated. If it does have an issue with a shift fork the noise should go away when in a particular gear. For 5th gear the noise goes away in 4th etc. I would just take it for a ride and run it through the gears to see if/when the noise stops.

Carb sync should be the next thing you do,it will change how it runs.

I'll do that soon and report back. Thanks for the help guys, the possibilities are both encouraging and discouraging at the same time haha.

Carb sync is tedious,carb Styx to me is as good as you can get,I have vacuum gages for the 1500 only because there are only 2 carbs.there might be a loaner here on the site,?

you can build a sync tool cheaper than the freight for a borrowed one.

Maybe I am missing something but I don't know why anyone would think it is a carb sync issue. The load on the engine virtually doesn't change when you let the clutch out in neutral. It runs perfect with the clutch in while in neutral. How do the carbs know the clutch is in or out. I wonder if you guys are thinking the bike is in gear I bet. Then it would load the engine.
