That noise may be coming from your primary, not the tranny. Try adjusting the clutch, and (of course) make sure you have the correct amount of chaincase fluid in your primary. If that doesnt do it Change the trans fluid and see if that helps

    The '06 dyna did not have dowels on the trans housing to locate the inner primary to. This causes the inner primary bearing and race to prematurely wear. 2 solutions. Replace the trans case and inner primary housing or, Replace the bearing and race and center the shaft in the bearing before tightening the inner primary bolts. Good luck.

My 2006 FXDBI makes a noise when it in neutral, but when I put it in gear the noise stops?


That's where the clutch pack is. As long as the clutch is working ok, don't worry about it. They all make noise.

Looking for after market bearing for complete bike, have had inner and outer transmission bearing and crank bearing go out on 2006 street bob fxdbi with 1550 kit, this bike has 20.000 miles on it.


Take the old bearings to a bearing "house" in your town or city. Any good counterman should be capable of recommending, matching and obtaining quality bearings for your rebuild. You may have/need to source some bearings directly from H-D due to proprietary issues.

Grind at 19 mph in primary


I would think that if the noise was being made by your transmission, it would start whenever you put the transmission in second gear and continue until you shifted to another gear, not at 19 mph only.

This sounds like a vibration that is specific to the engine rpm at that speed. It may sound like a grind but may actually be a vibration noise. Try to recreate the noise with the bike sitting still in neutral. Be careful not to allow the engine to overheat though.

Try other things to help you narrow down the source of the sound. When it starts, gently touch the brakes while maintaining the speed to try to eliminate the brakes. Does the noise change if you accellerated slightly or back off the throttle slightly.

It's very unusual for a transmission to make a noise in only one gear. I've found that if a transmission is making a noise, it makes the noise all the time but maybe louder at some speeds than others.

Good Luck
Steve

My 2001 Chrysler Voyager shifts into neutral while driving


I doubt you going to get a code from the transmission. Im surprised that shop you have it taken to cant tell you what is the problems. If you have high miles as 100k chances are the tranny is worned and need service or replacing. Transmission rearly grind or make a grinding noise, the brakes will make the grinding noise due to the worned pad as metal rubbing on metal, have all breaks check. If the van is 5speed, yes I can see the tranny will make a grinding noise VS automatic transmission. I would take it to another shop and get another opinion or take it to the dealer which they usually charge 70-75 buck to have it diagnose. If tranny need replacing check ebay to junk yard, is lot cheaper and as good than having it rebuilt.

Grinding noise while driving.


Possible causes:

a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline

b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk

c) dried out wheel bearings

d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts

e) worn A/C pump

f) worn alternator

g) worn water pump

Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.
