Pull the left case cover and take a look. Do you see any rubbing marks on the outside of the flywheel? Any marks on the inside of the cover? Any leaves or other trash at the flywheel? Start the bike with the cover removed. Is the rubbing sound still there? Is it actually coming from the flywheel or somewhere else? Turn the bike off. Lift the flywheel up and down then left and right. The flywheel should be rock solid. If movement is felt then you have a bad crankshaft bearing. Replace both crank bearings and crank seals. It would be a good idea to replace the sprocket shaft outside bearing if any movement is felt when trying to move that shaft. Replace the seal anyway.

Check the problem before riding again. Bad bearings may be letting the inside of the flywheel rub on other internal components. That is not a good thing.

I am having a problem with the installation of a Dyno by Minka Aire.

I am having an issue with assembling my Minka Dyno. I cannot get the flywheel to attach evenly to the motor assembly. When I tighten the screws (criss-cross) the flywheel lies crooked. I've tried twice but it's still crooked. Any help is appreciated.

What could cause flywheel noise on 2004 chevy trailblazer?

Check for loose bolts on the torque converter. Under load the bolts get forced to one side of their hole.
I suppose it is also possible to have the flywheel bolts loose, so if you do not find loose torque converter bolts, keep digging.

Sounds like the flywheel is rubbing when running pulled transmission and it looks like the flywheel is rubbing on stater side

Does your starter fully retract when disengaging? Your problem may be one of geometry if the starter is slightly out of position it will rub on the flywheel, or the Bendix gear isn't fully retracting.Try hitting the starter with a mallet to see if the Bendix gear pops back out fully after you start your car.

1995 Nissan pickup with automatic transmission, when I start it it makes a loud gear rubbing noise coming from the flywheel area. Any ideas? Had the starter checked it's still good.

when you had the starter out, did you inspect the flywheel itself? the starter can be engaging but the flywheel can have some wear so that a grinding noise will be heard

98 dodge ram quadcab 1500 small 8 cylinder motor. when I start it there is a very loud clacking noise underneath. after it runs for a few minutes it becomes not so loud but doesn't go away. could it be a...

possibly a cracked flywheel. i would make sure there is nothing rubbing first after that i would narrow down where the noise is coming from. if it is internal take a screwdriver and hold it to your ear and touch it throughout the drivetrain and where the noise is the loudest is where your problem is. kinda sounds like a cracked flywheel or a loose heat shield. i dont think it is a u joint because it shouldnt be turning if the truck is not moving.

You have a grinding noise when it's running or when you try to start it?
There is an inspection cover just behind the oil pan of the engine. If you remove it you can see the teeth on the flywheel. Chances are that the flywheel may still be good and the starter drive (part of starter) may be failing. If so and you leave it that way it will damage the flywheel. On automatic cars it's called a flex plate. And yes if you have a chrysler trans on there the converter may have the ring gear welded on.

1997 Chevy 1500 Starter Problems

The starter should have been mounted with a thin "shim" plate between the starter and the bell housing. (flywheel cover). It moves the starter out away from the flywheel. If your auto parts guy doesn't seem to have one, you can make one out of thin metal the thickness of a matchbook cover. Insure the starters housing is metal to metal with it's mount for good electrical contact.
