honda rubicon noise

3557 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  cliff668honda
I can hear a grinding noise on the left front of my 01 rubicon when the bike gets warmed up. The noise isn't there until the bike gets warm though. It kind of sounds like a chain slipping on a gear or something. I can hear it mostly when coasting, then when I hit the throttle it sounds like something slips slightly making the grinding noise then catches. Any suggestions on what this may be?

May be low on oil. But my guess is that you're having oil pressure problems. Take it in and have the dealer do an oil pressure test on it. I would STP running it until you get the problem resolved, you can do damage to the Hondamatic unit.
