CB350 Rattles When Clutch not Pulled In
« on: Jul 24, 2017, 15:02:59 »
Hey All,

New weird problem with my CB350 - the engine makes a rattling noise when the clutch lever is not pulled in, but it goes away as soon as I pull it in. The sound is very similar to if the kick start is lowered while the engine is running - kinda a rattling/buzzing noise.

Obviously I'll need to start doing tests on it, just trying to get an idea of first places to start - going from easiest to check and eliminate to most challenging.

First thing first I'm going to drain the oil and take a look at the magnetic drain plug and see if I have metal shavings. Might check the centrifuge as well.

Any advice on easiest/first places to check?

Pull the clutch cover is where I would start.

Perhaps its something simple like a loose piece of the clutch actuator. There's a little ball held in a detent there. Maybe it's damaged or not seating fully and is jingling around except when tension is put on it through use of the clutch lever.
Old motorcycles never die, they just wait.
