honda rubicon noise

3558 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?

rubicon transmission noise

Any luck on the tansmission noise? I have an'04 Rubicon with the same problem: shifts fine, runs fine, but has a ratcheting noise when decelerating down-hill. I have been led to the conclusion that the oil pump is at fault. I now have the engine in pieces on my workbech in the garage and am looking for answers. Please let me know what you have experienced on this machine.
