This is fairly common on high torque engines. If the rumble is still there in all gears, it is a problem. You will be able to feel it in the handlebars or the footrests.If your engine has a lot of miles on it (over 50,000) you may need a new set of clutch plates.

SOURCE: chirping noise when i ride, but goes away when i

i would say check your bearing, something like this is hard to finger out without being next to the bike. Dose it get louder the faster you go? Dose the bike want to pull when your stopped witht he clutch in??

No, the syncing only comes into play when you are SHIFTING. What you are likely hearing is a chain hitting something during deceleration. Look into chain thightness. Remember to check the chain at it's tightest spot. That means you need to carefully roll the bike, while feeling the chain, for 10 feet or so. Just find the tightest spot of the chain's normal rotation, and adjust at that spot. )Failure to do this burns out bearings quickly.)

I bet you are just slightly out of is normal. Also, clean your chain and lube it when hot.

Rumbling noise

This problem may be attributed to the tire rubber being hard on a cold morning and softens as the heat in the tires warm the rubber allowing them to be pliable on the road. The hard rubber generates the noise that is transferred through the hard rubber mounts and will do so until all the rubbers heat a little.

When I push In the clutch, I hear a rumbling noise under the hood. It still goes into gear. It just happened pulling into my garage. My mechanic is off for Fourth of July weekend and I fear driving it will...

rumbling can mean a whole bunch of things,, my guess would be that your hearing a throw out bearing going out , thats the part that allows the clutch plate and disc to come together to let the car engage, if it goes out completely ,, the clutch could be in gear and not able to release,

I own a 2007 Harly Davidson Street Glide with the motor running n I am in 1st or 2nd gear I let off the gass I get a noise n when I engage the clutch the noise goes away

I'm not sure what you mean by "engage the clutch". If you mean when you pull the clutch lever, the noise goes away, I'd check the tension on my final drive belt. If the belt is loose, when the engine tries to slow the motorcycle down, the final drive belt tries to rise up off of the front belt pulley making it rub the underside of the starter to inner primary housing. When you pull the clutch lever in, you disengage the engine from the transmission and the engine breaking force is removed from the front pulley and the belt goes back down on the pulley.

Good Luck

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.

I have a 2000 s80 volvo transmission shifts fine but in park or nueteral it makes a rumbling noise goes away when put into gear. it did make a jolt and bang when i pulled out from the intersection thanks...

when you are sitting idle and you press the clutch without putting it into gear does the noise go? if so you will need to fit a new clutch kit.

Well I removed the clutch casing. I wasn't to sure what I was looking for. The nuts on the clutch plate where not loose though the timing chain was "to me " very tight also the plastic guide bar did move a...

try this. start the bike and let warm up. after warm up, pull in the clutch lever and notice if any of the noise goes away.this will help determine what part of the clutch the noise or(problem) could be in. if it goes away mostly when you pull in the clutch it could just be that the discs are beginning to wear enough to require replacement. this noise isnt unusual. its because of the extra clearance caused with the wearing of the discs. does the clutch "slip" any under hard acceleration? another indicator of clutch wear. check these items and verify your problem.

RM 250 Clutch noise 1986 (Yes an old girl I know)

The clutch has two different types of needle bearings. One flat thrust bearing about 1" diameter and one caged needle bearing. The most likely culprit is the thrust bearing. This is a 5 to 10 dollar bearing and easy to replace if you have an impact driver to loosen the right case cover screws. Drain the oil, remove the right case cover then the clutch end plate. The bearing is there, and will probably come off with the plate.
