Not so unusual ... when you press the button, you throw the starter gear into the engine causing a clunk noise. If it troubles you , have your Honda Shop check it out ... your bike is 30 years old now ...

I am having problems starting it turn key get click than nothing


Check battery terminals making sure there tight as vibrations can loosen them also check battery is charged. If that doesn't cure it put it in gear with ignition off rock bike/ car backwards and forwards if you hear a light clunk noise try starting the normal way. If bike / car starts it means starter motor had jammed. Hope this helps.

What would cause my 26 inch avalon bicyle to make a clunking sound when shifting from low to high gear?And how do I fix it?


Are you going 1 gear at a time or trying to go from first to high. On some bikes you have to allow the chain go from one gear to the nest and up the line or it will make a noise.

When i engage eiather 1st or 2nd gear from neutral bike seems to grab and make a clunk noise, once rolling no problems


Older 4 speed transmissions were known for their "clunk" going into 1st gear.

However, even though you didn't give a model year, I'll assume you mean something newer than those.

If it "grabs" when going from neutral to 1st (bike wants to "jump"), it usually means the clutch push rod (under the primary cover's "Derby cover) needs adjustment, followed by the clutch cable.

As far as the leak where the cable enters the transmission, there is an "o-ring" seal that might need replacing.

Car won't start and starter is only making clunking noise


You can take out the spark plugs, keep track of your spark plug wire order, try to crank it over see if the engine turns over.


Check voltage on your new battery, some need to charge when new.

check for corrosion on the battery and starter cables.

Try to start a harley and it makes a loud clunk noise


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. Improper fuel level in float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaky float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
8. Ethanol sludge, dirt, rust in bottom of fuel tank
Good luck
