Hello everyone
I know that this topic has already been written about, but no coherent solution was found. Maybe someone in the meantime had something similar and solved the problem.
I have a beverly 350 from 2012 with 30,000 km. At the start of movement, if I suddenly increase the gas, some unusual sound is heard from the direction of the clutch. The sound is totally strange, maybe a little metallic. If I move slowly, there are no problems, no unusual noises.
Does anyone have a solution, suggestion or similar to offer??

We could sit around and guess from our keyboards but there really is no substitute for taking the cover off and having a look. If it sounds like the clutch, start at the clutch. Worn pads, broken pivots, broken springs….?

The BV350 has a centrifugal multi-disc wet clutch that has the reputation to be robust and durable. I would expect 30000km not to be a problem.

But if you hear a metallic noise at the point of engaging there must be a metal to metal contact which should not be there. In between parts moving with respect to each other there is normally always friction material.

I think it is not an easy job to disassemble and repair.
In this youtube you can see how it is constructed and how to assemble and disassemble

So, you think that the friction parts of the slats have worn out and need to be replaced?

Yes, that is what I think. Although 30000km seems low to wear out the friction material in a wet clutch.

Did you drive that 30000km?

I agree, but it also depends on the driving style. Now the scooter has 32,000 km, and I bought it from a younger person with 28,000 km. I don't think he spared it. I'm more for a quieter ride.

I see, you only did the last 4000km.

So you have the metallic noise but for the rest the clutch works fine.
What I would do in your case is not do anything and just ride the Beverly.

If things get worse or if the clutch starts to malfunction then I would consider to or trying to repair it myself or replacing it by a new one.
I checked the price of a new one at easyparts and it is at 343€, not so cheap.

Once they start acting up, most people replace the entire clutch. If the clutch works but you want to replace the disks because of their age or for another reason, that's when we see people buying replacement disks.

A set of discs here in Europe costs from 80 to 100 euros. 100 euros are Malossi discs. It's not expensive, and I can replace them myself. That is my first option. Thank you all for your advice.

Not the clutch. I had to replace the driven pulley at 35,000. Don't remember when it started making noise. Got it at ScooterWest for about $250. Much easier to replace than the clutch. I think I replaced the clutch plates/springs at 40,000.

Oh, this is a new moment. And more expensive. So you are convinced that the strange sound when accelerating suddenly comes from the driven pulley?

When I had 2 BV's, I could swap parts to see what was wrong. If you know someone with a BV and you sound like you DIY, this would prevent throwing money at it.
I do the same with my 2 SH's.

Can the driven pulley be repaired? That is, not to buy the entire driven pulley, but a part that is possibly defective / worn out?

No. The pins that hold pulley half's together are press fit on the BV.
Not so on my black SH that I've rebuilt once.

You mentioned in one post that shim stock .005 (0.127mm) thick should be put on. Did that help?
What is the inner and external diameter of the washer?

I wasn't the one with the problem, so you'll have to ask them.
Now I remember. The clunk was only on one of my BV's. After I installed the Malossi variator and exhaust, I never heard the clunk again

hi

The problem of the strange sound in the clutch has been solved.
I bought a Malossi clutch kit and replaced the plates myself.
The strange sound has disappeared and Beverly now moves more "softer" from the place.

Pozdrav, imam slican problem sa skuterom, isto mi se pojavio zvuk metala na odredjenim obrtajima. Koliko je bilo tesko da sam zamenis malosijeve diskove za kvacilo?
