POSSIBLE CLUTCH NOISE

Postby volvot5 » Tue Oct 02, 2012 7:45 pm



QUESTION FOR THE GURU'S.
SOMETIMES WHEN I LET MY CLUTCH OUT, THERE IS SOME SORT OF A HONKING NOISE. THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT. THE CLUTCH WORKS GREAT JUST THIS NOISE. ANY IDEAS.

Honking noise? How loud is it? Does it sound at all like grinding? I attached a pic of a how to article by WingAdmin to show proper clutch cable adjustment. But, if there is no noticeable problem with it operating correctly, maybe the noise is a result of something else that is attached to the whole drive train.

Sounds like he might be describing the noise created by out of synch carbs coming under load at low rpm.

Does the noise go away as soon as the rpm comes up above 1800 or so?

I had that noise when I first got my 1100. It sounded a little bit like marbles were bouncing around in the motor. As soon as I synced the carbs, and ran some seafoam through a tank of gas, it went away. I am sure if we could hear the sound that volvot5 is talking about, there would be a more definite answer. Can you in any way record the noise volvot5?
