  • noise

    was riding today two up with the wife when I noticed a strange noise from the tranny/chain area when the bike was accelerating under load. sort of a rattling noise. I'm hoping its the chain I'm going to inspect it tomorrow.

    chain, mine is doing the samething especially when you add the extra load. I have known that the chain needs replaced, just haven't done it yet. But now that I am in my garage and setup to do somethings, that is one of the first on the list.

      Bob sounds like your chain is slapping against the bottom of the swing arm. It is easy to adjust since I know the set up you have in the backyard. If you need help let me know. I can help you ONE day when I am off work. When that will be hmmm looks like next year for the KR rally.

        I lubed the chain and the noise went away. it is loose again ( I just adjusted it a couple weeks ago) from the looks of it I need a new chain.
