Clicking sound when..... - October 26, 2011, 03:54 PM

Need some advice.... my 2006 650R just passed 16k miles. and i have had no problems up till now. it seems when i shift and let out on the clutch. usually right as the gears seems to fully engage. i get a clicking. not on the lever but down in the engine or maybe gearbox. im no mechanic and this is my first bike. its mostly noticable in 1st thru 3rd. any ideas? some one suggested it may be the throw out bearing. just want some ideas before i head to the mechanic going in blind. any help is appreciated.... another suggestion was the chain or sproc, but i dont believe this to be it.

Almost impossible to diagnose correctly without actually hearing it.
Could make lots of educated guesses but they would be just guesses.

I'd take it to one of the many shops that sponsor this site such as RnR.

Or if you are going to be out by Winchester I'd be happy to listen to it.

Well 1st if you have never changed your chain and sprockets you should. They are worn by now. 2nd the last thing you want to do is start guessing and then take it to a shop and tell them all your guesses. Take it to a shop and tell them what happens and when it happens. They should take it from there. And yes I am biased about bringing it to RNR cause I do work there. But we are right around the corner and if Rick, the service manager/part owner, has some time he might be able to do a quick look see. Stop by or give him a call. 703-433-9195

High Tech. Only placed that has touched any 4 wheel vehicle I own in 20 years. Call and talk to Bobby. Tellem Crawford sent you.
