SOURCE: Loud Downshift

By "loud" I assume you are talking about the "clunk" when you engage a lower (or higher) gear. Does the bike try to creep forward when you are in gear with the clutch disengaged? If it does, then you need to adjust the clutch cable. If you have one of those bogus braided cables, then the adjustment is something you much watch very closely. Forgive me, but if you are shifting down at to high a speed, you are going to hear some loud clunks as the gears are turning at very different speeds. The trans on your bike is a very well designed item and noise when shifting most likely does not mean problems.

Recently there is a lot of scratchy noise coming from an engine of my 2003 V-max when I rev it above 3000 rpm. It goes away when the clutch is pulled. Everything is functioning just fine, except that noise...


If noise goes away when clutch is pulled then it is a loose clutch basket,you need to replace clutch basket and clutch,They make complete replacment kits.Its not a big deal but I would stop riding it till you replace worn parts.Running it the way it is will result in a blown clutch and could do more damage.If you have some mechanical ability you can change this yourself.Good Luck Brian.....
