Question about 2007 Bajaj Platina

Front wheel making nois

Discover 600 miles I ride the highway alot In all weather except ice. Some times I hear a noise coming from the front wheel it may just be the sound of the wheel cutting through the wind but I am just concerned bearings are new (according to seller of bike) no woble everything up front is tight. I can still see a bit of blue grease in the seam between wheel and bearings so could it just be the sound of the rim cutting through the air?

Warped rotor will make a noise. So will brake pads that aren't going back into the caliper like they should. I never saw a 90's NH yet that hadn't warped up the stock rotor. I put a floating rotor on my '92 NH 750 so that it wouldn't warp again and get noisy. It was also cheaper than another Honda rotor. Simple bolt-on fix just don't forget to use some Locktite! As for the caliper I've never worked on one. ,,

If the bike has knobby type (bumpy tread) they do make noise.Just be sure they have the correct air pressure in them.
Try to support the bike so you can manually spin the wheels like if the bike had a center stand.Feel while turning, to see if the wheels feel to tight or loose.And try to feel any play in the wheels. Or hear any stange noise.
While your are at it go ahead a drain the oil and change it with a good quality oil. The bike should have come with a book to tell you what type oil it wants.Dont be afraid to change the oil more than it is suppost to be.They dont hold that much oil and the shifting of the gears will generate alot of break in metal dust that needs to come out of the engine.
To say if you made a mistake in buying the bike remains to be seen because their is no history of the Chinese bikes in this country.
If I could ride the bike I could give you a better opinion.
Another thing you could do is, while riding the bike with it makeing the sound,pull in the clutch and put it in neutral.Is the feeling gone?
This can help to be sure the noise is not engine generated.

Just got a 2002 Triumph TT600 with only 2200 miles on it. Battery is new, and oil was just changed. If the bike is sitting over night, it's having a hard time starting in the morning? Once it gets going, I...


i think you should check all earth make sure there clean the check regulator if the power is down as a diode may be faulty then check oil thickness and magy isnt faulty but a 2002mod 600 with thoughs miles its rare finaly if your not open highway riding and burning excess oil from the muffler and carbone take it for a long hard fast ride blow cobwebs out

Drive chain goes loose and tight on back wheel turn


No.That was the problem.The chain and the sprockets needed to be renewed.
When you will take, the rear sprocket's base, off the axle check it's bearing.Just put your finger in and turn it slowly to see if it "locks" instantly.It will be nice if you renew it now that you disassembling the chain drive system.

06 Dyna rear tire wearing out quickly


Sometimes the dealers will remove a wheel to change a tire and only back the adjusters off enough to get the wheel off (ie 4 full turns each). When they are done they return the adjusters the same amount of turns to tension the belt and never really align the wheel properly.This could be what the problem is.

Rear wheel nois


How old are the bearings, milage- and age-wise? It probably won't hurt to replace 'em, anyways. There are only a few things at the rear wheel that would cause a scraping sound: wheel bearings, final drive parts rubbing on the rim or swingarm or the braking hardware. Give each of those a very good checking.

Nois from engine


I was just about to post the same thing about my bike and saw this one. I just started having the same exact noise/problem with my bike. THe ticking increases with the higher rpms (and becomes louder, so much so that it is annoyingly loud on highway) I have a ninj 250, 2000 miles on it. I push it kinda hard and do the normal newby crappy job of shifting and stuff. Hope I didn't flub it up.

Chain problem


I noticed a repetetive whirring coming from somewhere near the front sprocket- Or at least I'm pretty sure that's where it's coming from. It's not quite a grinding but it sounds like some sort of contact problem. I jacked up the bike, and the rear wheel spins freely in neutral except for a small area which seems to need just a *little* more force to spin around. Not sure if it's from the rear wheel or from whatever might be wrong up towards the front. The noise has an accompanying gritty feel, which rather reminds me of a bent rotor rubbing lightly at a certain point once per cycle on the brake pad. No amount of variation of pressure or speed in braking seems to affect the problem. There's no obvious performance issues, and I only hear it when I've got the clutch pulled in (probably because it's not loud enough to hear over the exhaust, not because it isn't happening). I ran the bike downhill in neutral and it still makes this noise. I lubed and adjusted the chain a day or so ago, and the adjustment notches are at the same point on each side. I had also ridden over a set of train rails cut deeply into the road, but I doubt that had much impact on anything. Any ideas?,Sounds like your chain may not have stretched evenly. You also may have it adjusted too tightly. You should always adjust the chain so that you have the specified slack at its tightest point. Do you know how many miles/KMs are on on this chain/sprocket set?,,,
