And it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,

Shaking when accelerating


Hello,

Find a large open parking lot and then do tight figure "8's" with the steering wheel all the way over locked and then listen for noises from the front wheel area with your windows down and the RADIO OFF! When doing figure 8's with the steering wheel hard over each way when your doing the figure 8 pattern will bring out the bad CV joints and they will make lots of noise. Best to get a second quote from a front end shop and compare prices. You could call a local auto parts store and ask what the CV joint and shafts cost to get an idea on the parts prices. Good luck and road test that car in a large parking lot with room to do the figure 8 pattern. Dennis

Fuel injector 450 xc


fills with gas then stops. The Bike doesn't start and the injector just doesn't make anymore noise isn't it suppose to be going continuously? if so then wat can i do to fix this problem ?,The fuel pump primes for a few seconds and then shuts off until the bike starts. What you are describing sounds normal. If your filter is filling with gas you may have a dirty fuel filter, or the orings in the quick disconnect may be blocking the fuel on either side of the tank. One of my friends had a oring blocking the return line and it ended up taking out his pump. Make sure you have a good stream of fuel returning to the tank, if so there is no blockage. ,,,
