I have a 1983 Honda Goldwing 1100. I get a bad rattling noise whenever I take off or when the motor is under strai, any ideas on what it might be?

does the noise sound like a bunch of marbles in the motor? does the noise go away above 2000 rpm? if so it's probably the primary chain. when was the last time you synced the carbs?

When i had an 83 the local shops here told me that was normal for an 1100..The old saying "they all do it". I didn't have it long enough to figure it out. Got rearended and totalled after only having it a few months. Sounds like crap when taking off from a dead stop.. Like it was pinging really bad.

Thanks for all the Comments, I will check the carburetors. The noise is more of a rattle it mainly happens when I first take off, or if the engine is under strain, like going up a hill in high gear. if I give a little more gas when I take off it doesn't rattle.

It might get better with a carb sync but chances are you will never get rid of it... quite normal for the 1100 at low rpm...

Sounds normal, you need to give it more gas when taking off and feather the clutch. Keep the rpm's up .
