my bike has suddenly developed a noise on deceleration a rattly sort of noise , its less noisy if i pull in the clutch lever it seems to come from the clutch area can anyone advise :thumbleft:
Could be the clutch plates rattling in the basket, quite common and can be rectified with a bit of filing.
If you intend to get the clutch housing off i have a spare gasket you can have, we're not far apart.
I would bite the bullet and buy from Honda, it might seem to cost more but at least you will be certain to get the correct fitting one.Anyone has a link for a new clutch basket (cheaper than the official price)? My clutch has been very noisy and rattly lately, so I'm planning on going in next time I get the bike to pieces (it might be a while, I just finished last month the previous service).
If you are unsure about the chain then replace it while you have access to it. Better than having to go though the hassle again later.Jut to revive this tread a little.
I ordered a new clutch pressure plate because there were quite deep indents into the posts on the existing one and on taking the basket off found the oil pump chain to be a little 'slack'.. It it supposed to have a certain level of movement? Does anybody know the amount of play there should be in this chain? I don't want to rebuild the clutch only to find I have to strip it all back down again?
