A common complaint on this motorcycle is a "coffee grinder" noise coming from the clutch when first letting it engage. Although it sounds like a monumental job, it actually only takes about 3 hours. Grab your shop manual and turn to the section dealing with the clutch and follow removal procedure.
Obtain a couple of sheets of #400 grit wet-or-dry (black) sandpaper.
Carefully disassemble the clutch noting the order of the parts.
Lay the sandpaper on a VERY flat surface and using very light pressure, sand each side of the fiber and metal clutch plates on both sides. Clean and reassemble. This procedure has worked on over 20 clutch baskets I have worked on over the years. Good luck.

It can be a worn clutch basket, do you hear a rattle when engine is idling, and goes away when you pull clutch in? if so suspect worn clutch basket / bushes

Gears seem to want to slip out and make a winning noise in certain gears too is my gearbox done for or is it more likely clutch it's Audi a3 with 130000 on the clock and clutch is very high too any...


gears slipping out will be indicated by the gear lever jumping into neutral.This can be from incorrect rear engagement from a loose worn pivot in the gear lever tower or something stopping the gear lever from moving properly.. Clutch problems are indicated by --going to the floor. crashing 1st gear, engines rpm s climbing without an appreciable vehicle speed increase. If there is a fault in the gear box it will be only in the gear engaged (missing teeth-chipped ) and not all gears. If it is a bearing then there will be no noise in 4th gear
Boxes are repairable as mostly it only needs that faulty part to be replaced

Humming noise coming from transmission when its in neutral. push the clutch in and it stops. suppose to be a new clutch also it runs great but if you lift the rear end off the ground the wheels will s


A noise in neutral that goes when the clutch is disengaged indicates a front input shaft bearing in the gear box . When the clutch is out that shaft is spinning along with the cluster shaft in the gear box. When the clutch is in that shaft stops (to engage first gear) and the bearing is no longer working.. It normally means a box out job.

1999 bmw 318i clutch or gearbox? (manual)


I would change the viscosity of the oil in the gear box first as if the oil is too heavy the syncro springs cannot handle a quick shift. next check the drain plug magnet for metal bits Lastly check that the clutch operation is spot on and that the clutch is fully disengaging to allow for the fast shift. May mean that you have to put your foot fully to the floor for your fast shifts and not as you see it in the movies. At this stage with you information if the box shifts well under normal conditions then I would tend to discount a faulty box

Gear box making niose


May seem obvious but its your gear box, if you can successfully shift into first, slowly release clutch without hitting the gas your engine should slowly wind down and bog out, if it does it immediately without a winddown it could be clutch but generally any grinding when slipping into gear is a sign your gearbox needs replacing

If the clutch is bad it would make the same noise in every gear, because the clutch does always the same engage and disengage the trans and its different gears. So if there is a noise in a specific gear the problem is the trans-axle ( if the noise is coming from the trans axle.)

5 Speed transmision problem


Obviously kicking the clutch in disconnects the gear box from the engine so it sounds like you have a bad idler bearing in the gear box.

Either way its going to need the gear box stripped out and rebuilt I would guess. More than 150K miles on it I assume.
