Does the noise stop when in neutral with the clutch handle pulled in? If so it may be normal. I have a 1999 Honda Valkyrie (has the same engine setup as your wing) and it is noisey with the clutch handle released at idle, but the noise goes away when the clutch handle is pulled in.

Another thought.......Have you recently adjusted the valves? If not they may need adjusting.

Hope this helps.

Once bike gets over 3000 it sticks there. (hanging idle)


Probably the vacumn slides are hanging up, Not because they are stuck, But because the idle screw is set too high to get to idle. The idle will usually hang up at 3,000 rpms. Set the idle mixtures at 1 1/4 turns out & make sure the throttle cable has play. Now back the carb idle down till it just idles about 1,100 rpms. with choke off. If the carb sync is way off, I will hang up on 1 carb when hot. You need a vacumn guage set to make sure they are balanced. To check the spark advance (which I doubt), Put a timing light on the LH plug wire & shine it at the timing marks behaind the LH cover on motor at botton covering the generator. It should be on the F marks at idle & at the unmarked line aprox 1 " over which is full advanced when reved up to 1/2 throttle. But yes a air leak at the intake manifold could cause it to rev, But will be a very erratic idle at 1,100 rpms. If the idle circuits are working correctly, You should be able to kill each cylinder with turning in the mixture screws one at a time. That checks the idle jet circuits.

V6 knocking noise


A KNOCKING SOUND IN THE ENGINE IS MOST LIKELY CAUSED BY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING
1. PISTON SLAP: Makes a sharp metallic noise. Idle engine and short out each cylinder plug. The noise will disappear when plug with bad piston is shorted. Noise will also disappear at acceleration. This can be caused by worn or out of round cylinder, or broken piston ring. Correct problem by re-boring cylinder and/or replacing piston.
2. VALVE NOISE: Makes clicking or rattle noise. Caused by excessive wear on valve stem or lifter, out of adjustment, or stuck valve. Correct by adjusting valve clearance, replace worn valve or lifter, regrind cam, replace valve guide and /or valve. A stuck valve can sometimes be loosened by passing oil through the carburetor while engine is running.

3. ROD BEARING KNOCK: Makes sharp metallic noise similar to a piston slap. Detection is opposite of piston slap. Rod knock is not heard at idle. Knock becomes louder as engine speed is increased. Caused by excessive rod bearing clearance. Correct by adjusting rod bearing clearance to .0015 inches by removing shims. May require re-pouring rod bearing.
4. REAR MAIN BEARING KNOCK: Makes dull knocking or thud noise. Detected at speeds between 20 and 50 MPH. Knock will normally decrease or disappear while pulling or decelerating. Noise will be detected the loudest at normal driving speed, when not pulling or decelerating. Correct by adjusting bearing clearance to .001 to .0015 inches. If knock is excessive, crank should be checked for out of roundness. May need to re-pour all main bearings to correct.
5. TIMING GEAR KNOCK: usually the most difficult to diagnose. If gear is loose or badly worn it will knock in all ranges. Run engine slightly above idle speed. Slowly open and close throttle. Knock will continue to be present, but just as engine slows down knock will become a slight rattle. Remove timing pin and reinsert into timing hole on timing gear cover. Press timing pin tightly against timing gear and accelerate slightly above idle. Knock will significantly be reduced or disappear. Correct by replacing both timing gear and crank gear as a matched set. The two gears should have a backlash clearance of .003 to .004. If more than .009 inch backlash, an oversize (.005) timing gear should be installed.
6. WRIST PIN SLAP: This can not be detected by shorting out the cylinder plugs. Rapidly accelerate and decelerate the engine speed. The engine will pass through a certain speed range when the wrist pin will rattle at about the same pitch as a valve tappet noise. This can be corrected by installing a new wrist pin bushing in the rod or new wrist pin f badly worn. Wrist pin should fit the piston and connecting rod with a tight metal to metal fit. The pin can be pushed into the piston and rod with a slight pressure of the hand. Pin to rod clearance is .0003 to .0005 inches.

Rattling sound at idle speed


The rattling is a worn-out timing chain (rattling should be louder at one end of the engine). Get it changed now - they will eventually break, closely followed by your bank balance!
