Hi ...... Does noise 'go-away' if you pull in the clutch ? Could be a few things, cam chain needs adjustment or replacement (35,000 miles-ish), rotor on some Kawasakis made up of steel centre,alloy middle & steel outer. Parts can become loose, short term solution is to centre tap/spot sections but ultimately replace rotor. Have you ever had the left casing off ? Is there a gasket fitted or a thinner pattern type fitted ? When was the last time valve clearences checked/changed ? Did they change shims on that side ?
Let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: noisey transmission when riding pull clutch in

Where the noise is coming from?

Head of engine?
Centre of engine?

Do you feel that your bike is riding heavy that is you are forwarding the gears but the load of engine is not lightning.

Please reply me then i will tell you the solution.

SOURCE: idle problem when warmed up

Hi there!

On the carburetor, there is an idle knob. Make sure it is not set too high. This is normal during a cold start so make sure to adjust the idle knob back at 1,100 RPM after your engine is warmed up.

Also, make sure the choke system is clean and is free. Throttle cable should have an allowance of just about .8cm.

The engine idle may also be controlled with the thermostat connected to the grill fan. it will normally idle up to about 2,000 rpm when it senses that the engine is too hot but not 4,000.00 make sure this system is working well.

let me know if this helps

SOURCE: noise in trans or in primary chain

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

The a/c light flashes when you turn on the heater blower motor. After awhile there's a screaching noise and it goes away if you change the engine rpm

The belt is slipping, hence the screeching noise as it puts a load on the alternator when turning on the blower. Adjust the belt tension tighter.

What causes a squeaky sound from the engine of an 2000 Isuzu rodeo when engine is running?

it could be one of the belts. if you put a little wax or brake fluid on the belt in a couple of places and the squeak goes away then you either have a loose belt/s or the belts/s need replacing. if no change it could be the timing belt making the noise.

If this sounds like a tin can rattle it is likely a loose heat shield on top of the catalytic converter. They come loose after time and corrosion take their toll.
