I have a 2008 GL1800. The tranny seems to have loose marbles in it. It has 2600 miles. Anyone else heard this noise?

Probably just the clutch basket rattling. When you pull in the clutch lever it changes sounds. This rattling noise has been heard on a lot of 1800s over the years. Mine has always had the noise and it is louder when the engine is up to operating temp.

The clutch basket has always been the accepted theory. I wouldn't worry about it. It is not related to a pending tranny failure. After about 3 or 4 months, you won't even notice it any more.

Same here! When I stand beside it, it's more noticeable. When I first got my "08" I thought, "that doesn't sound normal", but now I just ignore it. I haven't got next to another 08 to see if it's the same, but I'm comforted knowing I have a warranty.
