Weirdest sound, not cranking, then all good WTF?? - August 4, 2012, 08:13 PM

Yesterday I hopped on my 46k miles 2002 FZ1, pushed it off the center stand, turned key, hit starter button, it started cranking turning over and instead of firing I got a CLLLAANNCCCCKKKKKKKK. HEard this really loud "metallic/something broke" sound coming from the engine and that was it.

Tried hitting the starter button a few times but just got a clicking sound and the feeling the starter motor was trying to move something that was not going to move. So I put it in gear, moved it back and forth and tried to jump start the bike and it acted like normal (meaning that when I let go of the clutch in second gear after pushing the bike up to 2mph the engine did turn over). Then I stopped and tried the starter motor again. Everything worked just fine...

And it has worked fine since... I've probably started the bike 6 times after that with no issues.

So what happened?

I am thinking that possibly when I pushed the bike off the central stand somehow the gear drum moved and a gear got engaged as I was cranking, possibly because neutral was not completely engaged??? I don't think I touched the gear selector at all, but everything is possible. Not sure.


Ideas? Just curious as something like this has NEVER happened to me nor have I heard of it.
