I have a 1988 sportster with a 4 speed. Yesterday a problem developed where the entire third gear now rattles. The bike runs fine in third gear motion wise and the rattle is not in any other gear.
Its like the shifter is slapping around.
-Primary drive chain is good and adjusted to spec
-Lube in primary case
-no noise in other gears
-accelerates fine in third gear and the others

What could be the causes of this?
It is going to be a bad summer trying to avoid third gear, as right now I do not have the cash for a transmission rebuild

Thanks ahead of time for any help
