Hi there all, Jurasic here from the land of Oz. I have a 96 1500cc Aspy which under acceleration gives out a whine which is constant through the gears... 1st to OD.

Its not in the motor because if I clutch it while coasting the noise goes. It sounds to me like its coming from the front of the bike, or to one side of the motor. Up over 120 klms hr you cant hear it. What do yas all think it may be...Helpppp!!!

Thanks gang for a great site

I also have a 1200 Aspy which does the exact same thing, must be contageous between bikes. How much backlash should there be at the rear tyre.

Gearshaft bearings, they would stop moving when you pull the clutch on the move. Everything else would still be moving, like drive shaft, wheels, engine.

Is this your 1500 when ompared to another? or just "Both your wings"?

Reason I ask is that the tranny (for all the love it gets) is really pretty loud on its own. Gears are moslty square cut and to generate some noise -- of course loaded gears are louder gears in all manners.

If this is "all of your Goldwings" (as your sample), then I'd offer that you may want to experiment with an oil change and opt for a higher viscosity, or oil that will stick onto gears a bit better than what you're runnig now.

Take a moment to peek at photos in this tranny thread https://www.goldwingfacts.com/1500gearsfix.htm (BTW, the author has some serious stones about him) -- but do look at the gears -- flat on flat... nothing you'd find in a nice quiet automobile, and they do produce some noise compared to lighter bikes...

if this is your 1500 compared to another 1500, the oil change may be a good first step, btu after that... you'll be hunting a bit more.

Okay I am doing a filter and oil change this weekend, I might try some 10W-50W oil. I usually use Valvoline 10W - 40W in the 1200, but have just picked up the 1500 two weeks ago.

Great bikes my friends, thanks for your help as I live out in the desert of Oz and we dont have access to the gear you guys do in the USA. But its all about the ride, just love it (bloody kangaroos not good) lol.

Whiny transmissions are pretty much the norm for Goldwings. I always enjoyed going to rallys, like the deceased Honda Homecoming, and listening to all the whiny noises coming from our babys
