    Hi bmac.

    There's another thing to consider.

    Recently, after rebuilding my clutch (with all new plates), I found that the clutch was slipping. I removed the exhaust system & clutch cover again...

    The symptoms of a slipping clutch seem to have disappeared after changing out the Timing Retard Eliminator.

    I ran several WOT tests today thru all gears, with no dips in rpm's.

    No. It doesn't chime.

    Yup, still beeping.

    At the exact moment that I click it into Neutral with the foot shifter.

    It even sounds like its electronically generated, although faint. But regular as clockwork.

    I do it to relieve hand tension (holding the clutch handle) while waiting at the light.

    I check the status of the traffic behind me before I put it into neutral.

    Not like a horn.

    More like a chime or ding. Not very loud - subtle in fact - but I think a car pulling up next to me might hear it with his window down.

    Beeps going into Neutral

    At first I thought I was imagining it.

    But it happens so frequently now, I'm used to it.
