Re: noisy 3rd gear

What shape is your chain and sprockets in? Is it at any rpm in third? Under power or cruising? Try duplicating the conditions in other gears. If its cam chain or drive chain, you should be able to have it happen in other gears.

Re: noisy 3rd gear

Well, it certainly looks like a trans issue whiz. Does third stay engaged ok while under power without skipping out? It is an odd sound though that's why I thought we better investigate further. I think you know what's involved now. Sorry man!
