The clutch in my secondhand engine does exactly the same it's not too bad when the engine is cold but has a tendency to drag a little till it warms up. When hot there is quite a racket until I pull the lever. This engine came out of a written off RSV trackday bike and has had a much harder life than my original one. I reckon that it's time for both of us to rebuild our clutches no doubt someone on here can confirm my suspicion.,,,

1989 yamaha fj 1200 minor backfiring while backing down through the gears

back firing down through the gears means the engine is allowing unburnt fuel into the exhaust box --muffler--. Reasons can be exhaust valve clearance incorrect--- to rich or lean--ignition timing needs setting correctly. Rattly at cold and I take it that yours is still air cooled would be normal as the piston clearance is greatest until the piston heats up and expands to operating tolerance.. Check and adjust the tappet (valve)clearance and check for worn areas under the rocker face as the valve wear a small hole here making adjustment difficult.

New flying v, 3 strings make rattly sound near end

Are the strings hitting the frets and making a buzzing sound or is it actually coming from the bridge? Make sure the saddles on the bridge are secure. If the buzzing is caused by the fret then adjust the bridge height and/or truss rod. If the buzzing is coming from the bridge and cannot be cured it may be worth investing in an aftermarket bridge.

The rattly sound means the drive belt has snapped or the protective clutch has slipped. This needs repair by someone who knows how to repair Dysons officially. Sadly its the kind of model that can't be done by the owner.

Rattly noise

the blue smoke is an idicator of burning oil. this could be either bad valve seals or bad oil rings on the piston. with the loss of power and the ratteling noise nit would seem that you have a valve issue in the heads. now either the valves are not seating properly or or the lobes on the cam itself is worn and what you are hearing is the rocker arms slaping. Considering the age of the vehicle you have the option of either having the engine rebulit(that's if the blue smoke is from bad rings) or if you just have the top end done, there will be a substantial cost. or you can get rid of it. please rate this
