Hi, Jahaisch 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.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Gears---WHINE
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
15. Solid Lifters---TICK

Very dificult to find neutral and a terrible clattering noise coming from the transmission...just installed a new clutch and that did not change anything.. This is a 2001 Bonneville


You had best get the bike to a dealer for repairs. If the bike is making the sounds as you say, is is highly likely the tranny will self destruct at any moment > like at 60 mph in heavy traffic. You are risking your life if you continue to ride the bike.

Loud noise from engine bay on start up. it continues when the car is running. the only way to describe it is it sounds like a whosing noise


I don't know what whosing sounds like, but I have a high pitched whirring noise coming from my somewhere in the engine bay, my noise starts when the car starts and continues while driving, goes away at around 60 mph but will come back when I accelerate or decelerate, I have a friend that is a master tech at volkswagen, he suspects the alternator is making the noise, this is my first TDI, I bought it with 150k on it, I don't have any experience with TDI's, but am a Service Advisor, and it has been my general experience that all volkswagens are posessed! :) Always having some sort of electrical issue, Not sure if that will help.... Good Luck!

High Pitched noise


I had a high pitch noise, didn't sound like it came from the "underside". Turns out it was one of fans that had little chips in the blades? My Audi dealer replaced it, and it's fine now.
