Re: strange noise?
To pull the tranny requires you to drop the engine/tranny unit in the back to clear the frame. So you need the rest of the tupperware off and the fuel tank. I removed the fuel rail and throttle bodies so I could tilt the thing down without interference. The tranny is pretty easy to dissasemble but not like you would think. You don't remove the cover from the case rather you remove the case from the cover. But you can feel it in the bearing once you remove the tranny.
Oh yeah my 05 is awful noisey at idle compared to many other LTs I have been around. It is the K Bike "Rattle". The crank drives a gear that drive the gear on the alternator that drive the output shaft. Lots of unloaded gears to bang around at idle.
