Squeak coming from clutch right at the joint to the plate, there are 2 rubber boots here can this be greased to eliminate the noise-1999 mazda 323

I will assume you are talking about the ****** clutch,i dont think they made a 1999 mazda 323 unless in another country but anyway the noise you are hearing sounds like the pressure plate throwout bearing, this means the bearing is going bad, you must be careful as the grease will get thrown around and end up on clutch plate and cause slipping. if you can you can try spraying a little white lube into the bearing, and on ****** housing to help it slide better also. let me show you a picture of it and where to lube the bearing if theres room. sometimes the boot can be removed and there room to get to bearing, hope this helps.johnjohn2_140.jpg

Whinning noise in the primary chain case. I alreadt replace the tensioner shoe

With the engine running, put the transmission into gear and sit there with the clutch lever pulled in. Do you still hear the noise. If so, most likely the noise is in the primary itself rather than the transmission. Since you didn't specify whether the bike is a Sportster or a BIg Twin, it's difficult to say what the noise may be. It could be a bearing going bad. The problem with that is that you can disassemble the bike and never find the bearing. It could be the big bearing in the outer clutch shell or it could the mainshaft support bearing in the inner primary if it's a big twin. A Sportster has basically the same bearings but in different areas. If the bike is equipped with one of those automatic primary chain tensioners, I've seen them make a noise as well. Then again, a noise like that is very difficult to find. It seems to travel all through the engine. It could possibly be an inner cam bearing going bad. They sound exactly like the alternator whine on a Chevrolet. If you have one of those mechanic's stethoscopes or long screwdriver, listen to various places on your engine to try to locate the noise more closely.

Good Luck

Hi, Clive750 get a 2nd opinion on the lifter noise clutch noise is common if it goes away when you pull the clutch lever in and 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.

Tiny metal shavings in oil.. :(

Were you driving the bike when this happened? [if so, could have a broken shift fork]. If bike was just idling,..could be a bearing,...or piston /piston ring. *If tearing whole motor open,..check transmission side crankshaft seal also.

2007 yz450f has a low rumble when clutch is out all the way

The bearing for the clutch outer drum may be worn. The adjustment on the handlebars is to set lever free play(about 1/2 inch) before the cable becomes tight and operates the clutch release inside. Make sure the outer drum cover is tight--check with the clutch lever to make sure the plate releases the disks and plates.

Noise clutch at idle and I have the bike in neutral

the noise you are hearing is trans gear roll over clatter and is normal on this cycle, make sure the the crankcase is full and also make sure the engine is at the correct idle speed, slow idle can make this much louder.

Hi,when the engine is cold i hear a noise from the right bottom side of the engine,if i rev it to 2000rpm and up it stops,also when i push the clutch the noise stops.when the bike gets the idle tamberature...

Hi there, what you have is a very common problem called Cluthe Rattle.... I say problem but its not really, unless it is really really load its not going to cause you a problem, might be worth whipping the clutch cover off on the next oil change and as long as everything looks like its done upo it should be fine.. when the cover is off iff you grab the clutch basket in your hand and try to rotate it forwards and backwards you will probably be able to replicate the noise your hearing just slower....

Start and..

Could be your timing chains are very loose, they will make a noise on start up. Also, when was the last time you adjusted the valves? If they are way out of adjustment, ( on the lose side) they will make some noise.
