    I've never been inside the Hawk's clutch but generally a noise like that is a throwout bearing or something similar.

      clarify, please:

      When you pull the clutch and pop it into gear, there's a metallic "clunk" or something?

      ~or~

      When the clutch lever is pulled there's a consistant metallic grinding noise?

      The former means you need to adjust the cable some. The latter means your bearings are screwy...get ready to replace stuff.

        When the clutch lever is pulled in load rattling noise no noise when in gear and clutch disengauged better check the bearings by the sound of it

          Mine does this too. Even after a tear down and clutch replacement. I believe it's normal and shouldn't be anything to worry about.

            from what I have been told by other hawk riders, this is completely normal. Both of my Hawks make this noise, and both have close to new clutches in them.

            Not to worry - just go ride!

              a little noise is perfectly acceptable. This comes from the friction parts being loosened up a bit and it just allows minor imbalances to make themselves noticed...just about every vehicle with a clutch does it. If the noise is loud and obnoxious then it's bad. Should be pretty subtle.

                loud and very noticable. I suspect the clutch lifter plate bearing as this the only bearing shown in the online parts fiche.

                  Yeah, my '88 does the same thing... a quiet but definate "tack-tack-tack-tack" sound. I always half assumed, half hoped it was normal.
