I have a 06 gl1800 with a noise like grinding on the left side. It seems worse when its cold and I hear it worse when I let out the clutch. I thought it was a problem in the clutch but the dealer, where I left on Dec. 22nd said the Honda Rep and mechanic took the alternator apart and ordered a new one, then after installation it has same noise in engine now they say engine has to be removed to replace a dampener for the Alt. It is frustrating that the bike only has 6900 miles and only 4 months old. Has anyone had this problem and how did it come out.
