Default broke my harley

Riding to work to day my Harley started making a very loud grinding noise and loosing power.
I pulled over, checked the oil which was ok and called recovery. It sounded expensive.
Any ideas what I am looking for, piston, valves etc. I am going to have a few beers over the weekend before I decide what to do next.
The bike is street bob 2011.

I am now thinking tranny bearing,(the power of drinking beer), unless anyone has other ideas. I will probably have to waiting until the weekend to start striping her down.

Default Harley

I would check the compensator nut on the alternator side in the primary. They can come loose for various reasons . Remove the primary inspection plate and see if there is any aluminium swarf . If there is then it is probably from the nut eating your primary cover. Hope this helps...
