Since my crash Saturday, I rode it home and just put it away.

I rode it to school today, and when it was in the garage and starting out it was making some noises that I have not heard before. Or im being paranoid because im specially looking for something that is wrong.

It basically sounds like the valves, or some rattling. Im not even sure there is something wrong.

By the time I got school today, I couldnt hear any noise. Does anyone know what I should look for?

Should I take it in to the shop and ask them to give it a listen.

Basically yamaha r1s(some of them) are known to tick, and it basically sounds like its ticking.

I just had the valves adjusted 2-3k ago.

Anyone?

I think it's because you have 56,000 miles on it.


Is it top end noise? Does it go away when the RPMs increase? Does it go away when the bike warms?

If you just had your valves checked and the mechanic shimmed them on the loose side..they will chatter a bit. No real harm in that.

As long as the "have" is of free nature then you got yourself a deal.

It seems like only yesterday it had 4 miles


Actually I think the noise disappeared.. But maybe it was because of the drop..


Twiggy, When can you tell your clutch needs replacing? I really dont know about these things. I remember at a track day at VIR my clutch slipped, but it was rare. Should I be worried?

Sheep phucker, Im going to look to see what else I have. I should be your #1 supplier of r1 parts. Trust me, I can keep you stunting.

What kind of stuff do you need? I got some rearsets, which are slightly bent. I dont know if you want those.

It's all good. Appreciate anything you got.

If it's worn, you'll notice it in higher gears first. Epecially as the wind resistance increases.

My 2000 R1 used to tick when it was cold, then it would disappear when it warmed up. I dont think the crash could have damaged something internal in the engine - they are basically a big hunk of metal and should be stronger than other parts of the bike. But dont take my word for it, getting the bike checked out sounds like a good plan.

56,000 miles on a clutch, thats impressive!

He rides like my little sister on her green machine. Frankly, I am surprised it's starting to slip now.

How long did you clutch last? When do most last?

Will it damage something If I keep riding and the clutch is slipping?

Is it a hard install?

Your hababaloosa with 20k needs a new clutch yet?

You going to sell that bike, you know when it hits 21k no one will ever buy it.

I dont need to use the clutch for doing wheelies on a 1000... Anymore.

With a cable actuated clutch it's easier to tell because the amount of travel during the engagement part of the travel will decrease.
Gets pretty abrupt.
If you've cooked the plates instead of wearing them out it will slip like Twiggy said...
If you want a hand checking out let me know.
