More than likely tensioner, or could possibly need a valve adjustment. But I would doubt either one if you only have 1000 miles on the engine. Unless the engine was torn apart and assembled. then it may be out of spec.

It hasa slight rattle when reved but on cruise or on overrun it is very loud rattle which is in tie with engine revs but when it gets to about 2500 revs it is very sparodic


This could be anything from the valve settings being loose, to piston slop or wrist pins, to rod bearings. Really hard to say, since a rattle can describe a lot of different things. If you can isolate the location of the noise, it would help greatly in the diagnosis.

If you have access to a stethoscope, you can listen to different areas of the engine and tell where the noise is coming from.

No stethoscope, use a large screwdriver, put the tip against the engine and handle to ear. Move around the engine till you find the loudest noise. That will be the area that probably needs attention.

Noise in trans or in primary chain


It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Top speed


a crash. The reason I ask is with all my mods my bike doesn't stop pulling. If I crack the throttle at 70mph it just climbs. 8090,100,110 with no sign of slowing or mellowing out. But once I hit 110, I get scared of the rev limiter and back off. I mean, if 120 was the true ungoverned top speed, I'm sure the power would mellow off at around 110mph and just slowly inch it's way to 120, right? Anyone with more guts that can shed some light on this subject?? Remember, it's a 750, so your 900cc opinion should differ greatly,i have an 800 so probably just a little difference from your 750. not much though i wouldnt think. first the rev limiter is not so bad. i have not hit it in 6th gear, but have hit it in just about every other gear including 5th. just try it out in a lower gear to see for yourself. it will just kind of cut out. nothing violent. definately makes you wanna ease up or shift up though. mine also pulls very strong up to about 120 mph. 120-130 takes some time. and 130-140 takes quite some time. i have only seen low 140's (speedo indicated. reality is probably about 130 mph as everyone says there is about a 10 % error on the optimistic side) i have run out of road before hitting the rev limiter in 6th everytime. just takes so long to get there. but i would think up to about mid to upper 140'S (again indicated) would be about it. doubt 150 mph could be hit just based on rpms at 140 ish (8000 ish) and how slowly it gains speed on the top end.,,,
