It could be the 'cam chain' but you will be getting into a major overhaul to replace the cam chain so if you are familiar with the teardown of the motor go ahead and do it otherwise take it to a repair shop.

2003 Honda Goldwing 74K mles. Whirling noise sounds like in front of engine. It is not the high pitch whirling noise that is inherent in newer Goldwings. This noise just started 100 mile ago. The nois


right found the question
sounds to me the that either the crank nut or the cam nut is rubbing on the head cover casing
pop the cam cover casing off and have a look
for any scraping marks
if that is the problem it needs to go in the shop for a look at
it could be the mains or the spacer washers on the crank
or something simple link the clutch
i know its low milage but these need very regular full service and oil change every 10 to 15k

Engine makes loud knocking noise that seems to be coming from the very top of the engine. I should note that this car has 175000 miles on it


Knocking noises from the overhead cam may be making the noise in question. Maybe a bad bearing on the camshaft or a spun cam.

175,000 mi. is a lot of miles for an engine, it may have been over revved at some point, or suffered from oil starvation or dirty oil with a prior owner.

Is the enginesuppose to make noise like a tapping sound just got the bike and not use to noise from engine bike runs fine has 21000 miles on it plenty of oil in it and well taken care of


The Vol/C50 has had its engine referred to as the "angry sewing machine" for the valve noise, which is normal. If you do not know if the valves have been adjusted recently, it would be a good idea to do so. Fortunately, a noisy engine may be closer to sped than one that is too quiet- if the exhaust valve are too tight, you can burn one in time. A louder, clunking noise from the lower side case maight indicate and early demise for the cam chain tensioner, which has been a problem for some people. My '05 is right at 32K, with no problems at all.

When warm i notice a cam chain type noise. could this be a worn cam chain tensioner . the bike has covered 36000 miles


it can either be a worn tensioner or need for a valve adjustment. if you rev the engine and noise goes away, you need a new cam chain tensioner. if the noise remains or gets worse when you rev it up, you need a valve adjustment and should replac the tensioner anyway. 36,000 miles on the motor is definitely mileage for an adjustment if it's never had one.

Engine noise Yamaha FJR 1300 2005, rattling sound at idle, goes away with very hot engine temps. The sound started very small maybe a tap here and there at idle. Now its very noticeable. I checked valve...


I would be looking again at the cam chain tensioner. I have replaced 2 on my 05 so far and it was doing the same thing. the other known problem for noise in the engine like that is the valve guides are know to wear prematurely on 05's and the 03 and 04. Yamaha knows about the problem and will fix it under a one time warranty even if you do not have the extended warranty on the bike. Make sure you talk to the dealer about premature valve guide wear.

Noise in Engine


Try these for valve train noise:

1. Low oil pressure caused by oil feed pump not functioning
properly or oil passages obstructed.
2. Faulty hydraulic lifter(s).
3. Bent push rod(s).
4. Incorrect push rod length.
5. Rocker arm binding on shaft.
6. Valve sticking in guide.
7. Chain tensioning spring or shoe worn.
8. Cam(s), cam gear(s) or cam bushing(s) worn.
9. Cam timing incorrect.

Rattling noise from engine sometimes . mostly when choke just turned off or slowing to stop early on . not as bad when done a few miles . 15000 miles on clock . suspect cam chain tensioners ?


Its probably the automatic cam chain tensioner. Honda told me to ignore the noise because nothing bad is happening. My bike shop said I should replace it with a manual tensioner. I have 15300 miles and will leave it be.
