    Please help!! Jato making weird noises

    So i bought a used jato 3.3 not to long ago. Its very clean in great condition but for some reason i have noticed it almost sounds kind of like a grinding noise when engine idles. Is this normal and what could I do to fix this issue? It run fine just for some reason I dont think it should make that sound.

    would the clutch be making a light grinding noise while in motion?

    It could be the gear mesh between the clutch bell and spur gear. Sometimes when the mesh is to tight it makes a grinding noise.

    i would just look at the gear mesh and make sure its fine, if so then your gonna have to take the clutch out and make sure its fine.
