Glazed alternator clutch plates? Kind of a ratcheting sound? Common when oil wasn't changed or sitting unused too long.
1. Easy fix - drain oil, remove filter. Add diesel fuel to crankcase. Turn engine over. let sit and drain. Refill with new nonsynthetic oil and replace filter. Warm up. Drain, remove filter. Refill with fresh nonsynthetic oil, and install new filter.
2. Harder, but better. Remove plates and clean or replace them.

I think the noise u r describing is a characteristic of the cbx, not a "problem" . mine has a sort of "scraping" whirring type noise especially upon deceleration, i have ridden many cbx's virtually all have the noise. actually something 2 do with starter if memory serves me.

SOURCE: 1979 honda cbx 6 cylinder, no power at 1 coil. no

If you mean no output power, coil is bad. If you mean no input power 12v, there is a fault in the wiring. If you mean no signal from stator, wiring problem as well

All Honda's make a rattle sound at idle. It goes away when you pull in the clutch lever or drive down the road. New or old , it is a normal sound for a Honda motorcycle. It did it when it was brand new and it will do it when it has 120,000 miles on it. Understand it, get used to it, any Honda rider will tell you there is no way to stop it . It is just a normal Honda sound.. Now go out and ride.

Honda 750 cbx fe rattle from alternator


Probably a cam chain. There are two adjustments on some of those bikes. Not a simple task and needs to be done right. Get a manual.

I have a rattling noise coming from my alternator on my honda750cbxfe 1984 is it the bearings


there is no bearing, take off the cover and check the rotor screw, maybe you hear clutch, squeeze the clutch handle, if it is clutch the sound should go away, many bikes have this sound and it is normal.

I have an engine knock when the bike idles, this goes away when the clutch is pulled in. It also goes away when the bike ticks over about 900 - 1000 revs?


I have the same thing on my 2002 750 Honda Magna I have 20,000 miles (32,000 kilometers) The motorcycle operates flawlessly except for this noise. What it is, is the wear in the clutch plates allowing them to rattle. When you pull the clutch you have put pressure on these plates and the rattle stops. Also when you increase the revs a little the plates tighten up from centrifugal force. I'm just putting up with it until I have to replace the clutch, after replacement of the worn parts the noise will be gone as well.

Have a 1982 cx-500c I'm getting a noise that kind of sounds like pins rattling around in the main fuse area. Also pulling in cluch and I think it is gone.


All Honda clutches rattle when you idle.Pull in the clutch lever and it will go away. I have owned a dozen different Honda's (100,000 mile on one CX500D alone) and the clutches all rattled at idle. All of them. Get used to it , I am afraid there is little that can be done about it.

Clutch noise


All Honda clutches from the early 70's to present rattle and make noise when idling. When your pull in the clutch the noise goes away. If you are in gear and riding they are quiet. When just sitting and running they rattle. Sorry, it's standard for original equipment.

Very noisy engine at idle Rattles like cam chain. Noise goes away as you rev the engine. What do you think it could be?


Could be the carbs are out of balance as this will cause lash noise at the primary drive gears as these are straight cut gears.

'02 Yamaha XJR1300 Rattle/vibrating noise from bottom of engine


how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !

thanks xjr cambs

Hi,when the engine is cold i hear a noise from the right bottom side of the engine,if i rev it to 2000rpm and up it stops,also when i push the clutch the noise stops.when the bike gets the idle tamberature...


Hi there, what you have is a very common problem called Cluthe Rattle.... I say problem but its not really, unless it is really really load its not going to cause you a problem, might be worth whipping the clutch cover off on the next oil change and as long as everything looks like its done upo it should be fine.. when the cover is off iff you grab the clutch basket in your hand and try to rotate it forwards and backwards you will probably be able to replicate the noise your hearing just slower....
