How much tranny noise is acceptable???

My "Sandflea" developed input shaft noice over the last 2K or so miles. Not that it jumps at you, or anything, but you can hear the difference clutch in/clutch out. Think I can live with it for another week, until my bike is up and running, or do I need to park it right now? Comments will be greatly appreciated...

Noise is common with these trannies, it all depends on how much you can take, and how your truck is acting. If it seems to drive fine, just makes noise while in neutral with the engine spinning, probably would be OK.

Re: How much tranny noise is acceptable???

I've been driving my zook for over 3 years now with LOTS of noise in all gears (except 4th). It was like this when I got it, and I have no idea when the noise started, but it wasn't a new thing (I knew the prvious owner, and it made noise when he got it back in '97). When the truck is cold and on a flat surface, it will inch forward while in neutral... that's how bad it is.

I keep waiting for it to go out, but it just won't die.

I was convinced my tranny needed rebuilding because of the noise. Turns out, it was mostly pilot bearing. I've still got a little tranny noise, but it doesn't scare me now.
