Your problem is 90% located at the clutch disks. You want to open the cap and check their condition.

My 2006 FXDBI makes a whirling noise when it in neural, but when I put it in gear the noise is gone?


Sounds like the clutch is making some noise. Some bikes make a "whirring" noise as you describe, some make a "rattle", none of it matters. What's happening is that the friction discs and the plates are all together and spinning when the bike is in neutral with the clutch out. When you pull in the clutch to drop it in gear, all the plates and friction discs are now free from each other so the noise is lessened. If you listen real close, when you're moving slowly with the clutch out it's probably making the same noise. Unless the clutch is slipping or grabbing real hard, it's nothing to worry about. Ride and enjoy!

The starting clicks


Firstly, The starter relay should click whenever you turn the ignition on and have the on off switch to on. This lets you know that the relay is energized.

It kind of sounds like a switch maybe bad. try pulling in the clutch, putting up the side stand, putting the bike in neutral, and then starting it. If it still wont start, you may have a bad switch, or relay, or connection, or something else.


But, it sounds like a switch.

2002 Kawasaki ZX-6R is stalling when the clutch is disengaged


Hi, Jesse the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

I have a 2003 road king. I have a transmissiion growling noise when the bike is in neutral that winds down and stops when i pull in the clutch lever. Any advice on where to start?


Since the noise "winds down and stops" when you pull you pull in the clutch lever, this tells me that the problem is indeed inside the transmission. To try to guess exactly what the problem is is very difficult or impossible. I've torn down transmissions that were making a noise and repaired them without ever determining exactly what was causing the problem. If I had to take a guess, I'd probably put my money on the trapdoor bearings on the right side of the tranny. But, if I were going to repair the tranny, I'd replace every bearing in the unit and I'd inspect every other piece in it. Rebuilding a transmission is to large of a job to take shortcuts. You need to take the bike to a someone with known ability and get their opinion of what the problem is. A transmission rebuild is an expensive job unless you have the proper tools and experience to do it yourself. Still it ain't cheap.

Now, this may not be what you want to hear but in my opinion, it's the way I'd go. Just like going to a doctor, always get a second opinion when you think it's something big. Especially since I cannot hear the noise. I'm basically guessing here. Good Luck.

Road King Motorcycle clutch


Theres 2 clutch adjustments you can do - one is on the cable, under the boot, the other is at the clutch hub, under the derby cover in the primary. That should take care of the whine and your problem finding neutral. If you get some teflon spray and shoot it generously down the inside of your cable, you are gonna be surprized at how easy it'll pull

Stuck in gear


ry useing blue LOCTITE on the pinch bolts and other fasteners to keep the shifter from vibrating loose again. I had the shift linkage vibrate loose on my Thruxton when it was new, I had to fix it on the road to get home.
