GL1800 2008 very noisy gear change
 
Hello every one , I have read MANY thread talking about noisy é rough gear change and ....at that point Ièm quite sure my Gl1800 might have something wrong
here the symptom http://gl1800riders.com/forums/image.../icon_wink.gif :
when the bike is cold the gear change are all of them very smooth , barely no noise and definatly no "clunk" sound
when the bike get warmer the gear change begin to be noisy
after 20 minutes riding it is definatly very noisy and come the "clunk" sound

I have change the engine oil from
rotella full synthetic 10w-40
to
rotella semi synthetic 10w-40
to
honda mineral oil 10w-40

same result
I have change the clutch fluid

same result

any ideal what could be my next step ..?

have a great day every one

You mean that Honda 10-40 isn't a motorcycle oil?:surprise:

Usually noisy the other way around until the ECM lowers the RPMs. Is your clutch fully disengaging?

My bike has almost 63,000 and I noticed the shifter getting clunky this spring. Dont know if this is the issue with yours or not and couldnt hurt to try. I wound up lubing both heim joints on the shifter linkage. I found after all of the rain and dust and just general riding just took its toll over time. The lube made a big difference in mine.

You can shift just as well without the clutch and it would be grinding or lurching going into gear from neutral if that was the problem.
Try a 10/30 oil soso565.

as mention I had the clucth fluid change for that reason ... i was thinking the fluid might be old and was not engaging the clucth properly ....but still same issue

the funny thing for me is when the bike is cold during 10 - 15 minutes , every is smooth and quiet during gear change .

Does the 10w-30 is thicker then 10w-40 ?

I ask that because , when the bike is cold ( during 10-15 minutes ) everything is quite smooth and normal .

so I was thinking when the oil get warmer ( thinner ) the noise appear
