Bike making noises - May 14, 2007, 08:59 AM

Curb hopped, thought it was lower and bottomed out. Heard a bang/scrape for the .025 seconds and all was good again.

The next day, when accelerating the bike in 1st gear sounds like its struggling. Like somethings ratteling until I get into second. Then I either can't hear it anymore or it doesn't exsist.


There is no performance problems, just the noise where it sounds like it's going to break or something.





I also have another problem. It's been this way for awhile. Happens in 5th gear when I'm going into 6th gear. A normal clutched shift and once I put it in sixth, the rpms shoot out the roof and it doesn't actually shift for like 2 full seconds at which point the bike snaps and jerks. (now i've learned to expect this and it's not scary, just annoying)


Thanks!

Clutch issue. Probably just the cable too tight though. Loosen it up a little and see if it still slips, if so you might need to replace the plates.

As for your other issue, I'm not sure about your bike, but mine only has the exhaust down there. If I were to bottom out I'd look at all the seals and gaskets.
