230 3rd gear clicking

Recommended Posts

bikes performs fine in all gears but in 3rd there is a distinct clicking like the gear teeth are slightly hitting. Stays in gear fine, power to wheel seems ok, just a little grind. Any ideas? If I have to replace transmission will I have to pull the engine or can it be done in the frame?

Is this when you get on the gas only?

I can hear both under power and coasting

Well, if it does need to have the transmission gears looked at, the engine will need to come out and be completely taken apart.

 

Can you feel any weirdness through the shift lever while it makes the noises?

I have not noticed any unusual feel, it is there under load, coasting and if I pull in the clutch. It sounds just like a loose chain does when it slaps the chain guard (I triple checked its not the chain). It shifts fine into gear, just makes the noise.
