Starter Gear

Post by jayhawker »



Sometimes I hear some funny clicking noise on my 2001 Goldwing GL1800 and it gets louder after shutting the engine off and while the engine RPM's are dropping from idle. I was wondering could it be the starter gear that hasn't disengaged. It doesn't do it all the time just once in a while but I'm not sure how to pin point the noise. Any suggestions and has anyone else experienced this situation.

That's a mighty short time to listen to a noise. No, there is no starter gear to disengage, it is a roller clutch.

Mileage ???

PM me your email address, and I'll send you a vid. You can compare the noise in it to yours.
