Its like a deep door squeak or squelching sound on takeoff when letting the clutch out? Does ever time when the bike is cold but goes away when the bike is fully warmed up. Someone said maybe the clutch basket but the noise sounds like it is coming from the front of the motor? Anyone know what this is? please advise! [email protected]

I had an 1100 Aspy that made a similar sound, never found the cause but it never got worse either.

I had a similar noise on my '83 Interstate. I was using Shell Rotella synthetic and changed over to Delo 400 and the noise went away.

My 82 did and does the same thing. Never gotten better or worse in 2 years. I think I will try the oil-switch RichO mentioned and see what the results are there!!

I have heard it referred to as the squirrel. Mine does it on the first take off when it is cold and then it goes away.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but my 1100 makes the same sound as everyone elses.

Typical for the 1100.. and been named the "screeching squirrel" although to me it is more of a growl....

I bought my 1100 new and the growl/screech has been there since day one.
