Question about 1998 Honda VT 600 C Shadow

1 Answer

I replaced the clutch in my 1996 VT600 CD, after filling it with oil I have a sort of grinding noise when I start the bike. Does this mean I installed it incorrectly? If so, what is the most common mistake on installation?

Did you soak all the clutch plates and friction plates for at least a few hours (best overnight) before installing them?

Grinding noise in either motor, gearbox or drive shaft on low speed going uphill. Gets worse when going faster. Souns like something needs oil change or top-up.


Look at the universal joints on the 2 ends of the drive shaft. The hubs may have dried up and wore out you might be grinding metal. If so, you need to replace the universal joints before the drive shaft falls out.

Starter noise or starting noise


Most probably just a bad meshing of the starter and the gearbox drive. If the starter doesn't throw the gear out far enough you will get a grinding sound. This will mean it has to work harder to turn the engine over , so causing the battery to drain more and the engine to take longer to start.

2008 Z750 bad grinding noise in first gear


It is possible that the first gear shift fork in the transmission is bent causing the 'dog-clutch' between two gears to just barely mesh. With engine off, push the shift into first and clutch lever released. Rock the bike back and forth to see if the gearing seems to be jumping in and out. There may be a problem with the shift lever shaft mechanism not allowing a complete shift into first gear. Hope this helps!

2004 VT600 AND HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE CLUTCH


It depends on the amount of abuse and the attention to maintance the bike has received in the past. Clutches can last 15+ years or can be destroyed in a few months of hard (abusive) use.

In this case, you might investigate simply changing the oil. Fresh oil sometimes makes a huge difference - especially with a wet clutch. If the oil has been changed regularly and recently, it's possible the clutch is in need of replacement or possibly a simple adjustment. With the lever all the way released, you should have a small amount of free-play in the lever before resistance is felt. 10MM at the end of the lever, or about 1-2MM at the cable end of free-play is desired.

If this change happened suddenly it's possible that something has failed internally. If so, I do not advise that the bike be run until it is serviced.

No oil pressure


there is also a grinding noise. Recently I had to set it down in the street and the problem started after that.Well this one seems pretty straightforward. The oil light and lack of pressure mean that your oil pump has quit pumping (assuming that you've verified that there is oil in the crankcase). The grinding noise is common when running any internal combustion engine without oil pressure. That's the sound of the engine destroying itself.,,
