Check ALL of your pulleys. Look closely at the tensioner pulleys with the belt off. If you feel any slack at all, replace it soon.

My 1984 gl1200a goldwing has a rattle in motor when it is accelerated quickly when in nutral and rattles when riding above 3200-3400 rpm changed oil cut filter apart no metal in it sounds like spark k


1. add an octane booster to the fuel or try some high octane fuel (93 or above) and see if it stops rattling. Also make sure that the engine is not being lugged (throttled hard at low engine speeds) while in driving. If the rattling goes away or decreases check the fuel quality or, it probably has some engine issues like carbon build-up in the engine, overheating, or the timing may be off, or the engine is not running on all 4 cylinders.

My 96 chrysler lhs has a knocking/rattleing sound coming from the bottom engine and as you push down on the gas the faster you drive the louder it rattles


if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

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.

Lg 1030hr excessive ping noise


COULD BE ALOT OF THINGS BUT MY FIRST GUESS IS THE FAN SCREWS THAT HOLD THE FAN MOTOR COULD BE LOOSE CAUSING IT TO RATTLE ON START UP OR SHUT DOWN BUT REALLY NOT MAKING TO MUCH NOISE AS THE UNIT IS RUNNING. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE NOISE BETTER? IS IT SCRAPPING LIKE A SCRUB OR KNOCKING LIKE HIT HIT HIT HIT?
