Hi the standard gearbox i have in my vti-s is making some weird noticable rubbing noises up to 30mph...then you can't hear it!
Friend of mine thinks it's the main transmission bearing...anyone have any idea? If so does anyone know where i can pick up parts for it or maybe the whole gearbox? chears :)

You sure its the gearbox?

Mine makes all kinds of noises to like when your selecting gears etc its noisey as hell.

If your worried change the gearbox oil for some good honda stuff and go from there. Putting new and good oil in can help alot of things.

Im sure it is the Gear box because only makes noise when im in any gear and when clutch is up, half throttle to 30mph...but the sound is more horrible when slowing down to a junction and smooth again when clutch is in!

So is your gearbox noises sorted yet or still have them?

I assumed they were normall, mine arent pulling away or diriving i just find the box to be shit tbh. The gear selecting is clunky and noise especially when statioary you can hear everything. It works fine it just drives me mad.

I had similar problem mate. is it a whiring sound and speeds up as you drive. Might be the primary gear bearings. Mainly 1st gear affected, but 2nd can wear a bit aswell. If it is.only 2 fings to do if it is, 1 change the gearbox, but if its 2nd hand you cant be sure of the condition. Might be just as bad as the one you already have, unless you buy brand new which is a shit load. What i did was have my gearbox recondition with new bearing and also changed the clutch, cant explain how sweet it was to drive after i did this. Smootest gears ive ever had!!!!!!

Hope helps mate

nah i didnt do it myself, you need special tools when taking gearboxes apart, i think. I got mine done at uk clucthes in luton. Payed 350 quid. Was like a brand new gearbox. Im sure if u look about you could prob get it a bit cheaper. The bearings cost feck all, its jst the labour, as its a specialist job. You should sort it asap as the bearnings will just get worse, with that said mine was doing it for ages, got to the point where it was so annoyingly loud i just had to get it done , lol.
