    Exclamation 1996 R1100 GS Noisy transmission

    I have about 32,000 on this R1100GS and it runs and rides great. While riding the bike, the transmission is quiet and changes fine.

    Recently, while moving it in the garage, i noticed a rattle while moving it. It occurred with the engine off, in first gear with the clutch pulled. When the bike is rolled, it makes a rattling noise. I checked with the bike on the center stand and rear wheel off the ground. In gear with the clutch pulled, I get the noise when the wheel rotates. Out of gear with the clutch out, no noise. Is this normal? I may have just never noticed it since I don't often move it this way.
