Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
Letting off the throttle causes a loud bearing grind kind of noise in the transmission. Pulling in the clutch, coasting, you can hear it not applied and spinning freely - sound is reduced and intermittent. At a complete stop, bike doesn't make the noise, included when engine is revved, so it's definitely in the gear box. I'm assuming this is some kind of bad bearing. Any thoughts?
Hi, Fichmann I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

The clunk is normal for this bike ,it is a Virago .You can adjust the clutch but unless it sounds like it is slipping and is shifting fine I would leave it alone.If you think your bike is out of time , on the left side,kickstand side,there is a side cover and in the center of that cover are two plugs one above the other with a slot for a straight screw driver . one is a sight hole to check your time ane the other is to get to the flywheel bolt to line up your timing mark .When you look at the top of the back cylinder head you will see two allen bolts inside the cooling fins.You can take the vacuum hose off and the top of this head and in behind it is your timing gear .Turn the bolt in the center of the lower cover on the crank ane line it up with the T and you should be on top dead center , check the timing gear and the dot on the gear should be lined up with the arrow made into the flange of the inside of that head.If everything lines up you are in time on both cylinders.You can also hook a timing light up and check it.Oh by the way if you try to turn the crank bolt it turns clockwise and it will be easier to turn if you take out your spark plugs.I would check my fuel and see if it might be running rich (too much gas or float level)

SOURCE: Clicking noise from rear wheel
Is your bike chain drive? It sound like you have a link in the chain hanging up. Check it and lube it.

Testimonial: "Tank you for the quick reply!!!"
This noise may be from afew things the most common would be a bad wheel bearing, the other would be the 4wheel drive is engaging and disengaging, i would start by checking the bearing, check up front wheels and shake tire in and out from the top and bottom, there should be no movement there. if the wheel moves in and out then the bearing is bad, sometimes it may be tight and still be bad. the best way to check this would be on a lift with the wheels spinning. hope this helps.
