  7. Question Strange squeal in front end

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    This noise is random. It seem to be in the engine, because it happens when I give it a quick shot on the throttle. It goes away when cruising with no load ( accel/deccel). Stops if I pull the clutch to disengage. Sometimes a very short duration some times not. Thanks in advance Duncan

I tested the clutch switch and it works fine. The odd thing is that the power source for the switch (coming from the start relay) only...
