Clutch noise

Post by gabby » Tue Jan 31, 2012 3:02 am

Hello all. I have a 750GT engine with clutch noise and hope someone can point me to a likely problem before I pull it apart. The clutch works perfectly but when I pull the lever in it's starting to make a bit of noise. My first thought was a thrust bearing or some such thing but on getting a manual out it doesn't seem to have one. It appears to me that the only bearing as such when the clutch is actuated is a pushrod ball. I can't work out what could be working loose if it's something else.
I suspect it's a common thing - any suggestions out there? It's not serously noisy yet but it's noticeable enough to start worrying about the old girl.
Cheers, gabby

Two things come to mind,first being the clutch pushrod[s] running dry and squeaking.Remove and grease.Second the clutch hub is coming loose,kind of a lowsort of rumble. disasemble and tighten.Not too difficult but you will need a way to hold the hub while you tighten it.

Thanks for that information Steve. Hopefully it's something simple so will pull it apart then and see what I find.
