Aero 750 2005

I am fairly new to the motorcycle world. I recently had a major brain fart and got my dipstick stuck in between my clutch gear and the primary gear. Since I have freed the broken piece I have now developed a knocking noise in the side. It does pick up with the engine as you give it gas. Any ideas?

You are not the first one to do that. You may have a piece of the diptick stuck tight in the teeth on the clutch and primary gear and it goes around and clicks each revolution. Need to take off the side cover to clean the teeth,and maybe polish out a dent in them even.

I can attest - I've done this. Damage on mine was minimal, but I did replace the two items it damaged.


If you feel half as dumb as I did - Don't worry. It'll be fine. Make sure you get the severed bits out of the crankcase. The bike and you will survive!


Let's get you back out there.

I have torn into the thing pretty far now. I've been researching and learning over the last couple of months. I now have the clutch basket and the primary gear off so I can inspect them in hand. It wasn't that hard to get them out. I'm worried that there is some kind of damage to the gear that I can't see with the naked eye. I have scoured the internet for an inexpensive version of my clutch basket gear. (22100-MBL-610 67 tooth) But the cheapest I can find it is a little over $200 to my door. Debating cleaning it all up and reassembling before ordering a new one.

Look really really close. There should be. I've attached my basket. The damage I saw was enough for me. Don't forget that the nut that holds this on is a one time thing - you need that too. I replaced the crank gear too - but destroyed it making a locker for the job.

My recommendation is replace it. Others have been just fine giving theirs some love.

I just ordered a new one with the new clutch nut. Whenever it gets in I will throw the thing back together and see how it works. Fingers crossed. I'll update when finished.

I got the new parts on and it all worked. NO MORE NOISE!! However, now the clutch isn't engaging. When I put it in gear, the engine dies. Could I have gotten the clutch spring bolts tightened incorrectly? I've played with the linkage and nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Is your kick stand down?

Yes. I'm an idiot. I was so worried about all of the mechanical things it could've been I overlooked the simplest of them all. Thank you!!! Going to take her out for a spin

It helps if you pick the kick stand up I guess. Time to take her out and try her out
