I purchased my first oilhead knowing it needed some work . The previous owner claimed all it needed was a right cylinder head gasket. Had both changed for good measure.
Due to the needed repairs I could not test drive the bike.
Inital ride produced a sreeching noice when letting out the clutch in firt gear then disappears until I pull away in 1st again. No noises when shifting into any other gears.
The bike ran strong until about 20 minutes into the ride when it just stalled, would not restart after about ten minutes.
Retrieved the truck and trailer, just before loading I tried to start the bike and it fired up but did not want to keep running for very long.
Any input would be helpful.
HES and belt changed, screeching persists. Someone sugested it may be clutch rivets scraping. Any additional thoughts?
