salerno43 Posted May 15, 2006 Share Posted May 15, 2006 I have a 02 1150RT with 62k Miles on it. Just lately it has begun to make some noise from the transmission at some point. Originally it was mostly notable in the lower gears when using engine breaking but now I can hear it on the motorway. Other symptoms are slight vibration and that it feels like your driving with the brakes dragging and performance is down but the engine itself seems fine. Just last week as I pulled the clutch in the bike to change gear and it began to slow as if the brakes were actually on, I limped home as it was only 300 yards to home and the bike felt locked up but afetr rocking back and forward it free'd up. calipers were not at all warm so the brakes seem fine. Worried that a UJ may be the problem I took it to a garage, it was test driven and they said gearbox was worn and needed replacing - but had no idea what the brakes on thing was all about. Clutch is now rattling from time to time until you pull it in. He's only suggestion meant ripping the gearbox apart to find out - or drive it till it dies. I'm worried incase it is a U-J and it locks up the backwheel. Any ideas on what I should do/try. Thanks in Advance Spencer Link to comment
