Could be your timing chains are very loose, they will make a noise on start up. Also, when was the last time you adjusted the valves? If they are way out of adjustment, ( on the lose side) they will make some noise.

Have a 2003 yamaha v star classic 1100. After about 10 miles when stopping at a light the revs go high until the bike comes to a complete stop.After stopping the revs drop to normal.Another thing I noticed...


Hi, Eugene_imric and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted or pinched.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
5. Broken throttle return spring.
6. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
7. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, VSS sensors or wiring/connector

1989 vt1100c motor oil to reduce engine ticking


20W-50 is good for muffling sounds in the motor. Depending on the loudness the ticking could be caused by Exhaust gaskets (o-rings) from the head to the head pipe(ticking sound ((at idle))and popping or backfiring on deceleration). When automatic cam chain adjusters are going bad you get a clicking sound, or worse, hydraulic valve lifters (for zero tolerance) going bad. Lifters tend to be a loud clacking sound.

'02 Yamaha XJR1300 Rattle/vibrating noise from bottom of engine


how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !

thanks xjr cambs

Clacking noise at different engine idles on my Yamaha V Star


Lots of bikes make a clacking in the transmission , especially when cold at idle. Basically the engine accelerates and decelerates between each piston firing, and you hear the backlash in the gears slapping back and forth. Without hearing it I can't say for sure, but find someone else with a similar bike and see if it sounds the same.

CLUTCH problem


This is a problem that is very hard to solve on line... It could be human error.. But it could be because of power or carburation issues as well. Best thing I can tell you is to remove the spark plugs and tell me what color they are. Spark plugs are an excelent indicator of the true performance of the engine. Attach pictures of the porcilan and electrode area. This will help me determine if it is error or not.

Just broke its second pinion shaft i drive case at shoulder of thread first time it did it was under warranty


Sounds like tuning problems.
Yamaha cautioned on this.
First, make sure the engine remains in a good state of tune, valve clearance, carb sync, idle speed (STOCK, 1000~1100 rpms) idle mixture.
Then starting procedure, full choke no throttle when cold, do not try to rev it until the engine gets some heat in it.

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.

Loud clack on shutdown


Unfortunately it is probably the Sprag Clutch. My '95 did that for a while. Then it got worse and started making the noise during starting.
