Rumbling Gearbox on 1800 (2006)

Postby MechontheMove » Mon Aug 15, 2011 6:21 am



Hi all,
I've been asked to look at a rumbling gearbox for a customer and as i've never done much on these bikes (very few in Jersey, Channel Islands!) it'd be very helpful if someone can point me in the direction of either a workshop manual or an existing thread that will help me through the removal/repair/refit procedure.
All help is appreciated,
Jez

What kind of rumbling do you have? My 06 1800 has gear noise as I believe they all do under acceloration, Much the same sound that you hear when driving a big truck, it is more of a whine. If the bike is on the side stand and idling you can hear the gears turning and as soon as you pull in the cluth the noise stops. My 1800 has almost 160000 km an has not had any isues. Other than that I can't help you
