Engine noise In the last few days there has been a grinding noise coming from the engine of my bike when I'm driving at slow speeds in second gear.Its my first bike so I'm not a hundred percent sure from where. It feels like its coming from near my braking foot on the right hand side. Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

Hi sparkx
If it ONLY does it in second gear, then there will be a problem with that gear set in the transmission. I would straight away drop the oil from the bike and check screens and filters and sump plugs for any debri. If there is metal grindings in the sump, continuing to ride the bike in that condition could easily result in complete failure of some parts, and or the entire engine because of the bits of metal passing through. A mechanic can sometimes get a look inside the transmission with an inspection camera designed for the job.
You need to act quick if you wish to keep the repair costs to a minimum. Ignoring the problem may result in having to spend extra money replacing additional parts. Good luck with getting it sorted. Happy to talk to you more about it. 
regards robotek

Grinding noise in either motor, gearbox or drive shaft on low speed going uphill. Gets worse when going faster. Souns like something needs oil change or top-up.


Look at the universal joints on the 2 ends of the drive shaft. The hubs may have dried up and wore out you might be grinding metal. If so, you need to replace the universal joints before the drive shaft falls out.

Strange grinding Sound coming from bottom end of engine


If the bike sounds fine on idle and will rev freely then I would suspect the gearbox and particularly the power output shaft/drive shaft

I went over some substantial speed-bumps where the bottom struck and scratched. I had to go about 2 kms/hr. so it would not happen (seriously!). Everything was fine (stopped at a store for about 10...


Hi, it seems you have faulty clutch from the description you made concerning the grinding noise when you tried 2nd and 3rd gear which i thinks is as a result of the stuck and scratch you had on the speed bump. And if you try riding it in its present state, you will end up damaging the gear box...

Now if your engine stalls when you drop into 1st gear, with the clutch disengaged, then the clutch plates are stuck together. Normally in this case, before starting the engine, try putting the transmission in 2nd or 3rd gear (But you already have a problem doing that which is also as a result of the faulty clutch), pull the clutch in and roll the bike forward and backward a few times to free the stuck plates. Meanwhile fresh gasoline maybe all you need..

In summary, a clutch problem....

Grind at 19 mph in primary


I would think that if the noise was being made by your transmission, it would start whenever you put the transmission in second gear and continue until you shifted to another gear, not at 19 mph only.

This sounds like a vibration that is specific to the engine rpm at that speed. It may sound like a grind but may actually be a vibration noise. Try to recreate the noise with the bike sitting still in neutral. Be careful not to allow the engine to overheat though.

Try other things to help you narrow down the source of the sound. When it starts, gently touch the brakes while maintaining the speed to try to eliminate the brakes. Does the noise change if you accellerated slightly or back off the throttle slightly.

It's very unusual for a transmission to make a noise in only one gear. I've found that if a transmission is making a noise, it makes the noise all the time but maybe louder at some speeds than others.

Good Luck
Steve

Feels like gears are slipping with any kind of power


If you are hearing a bad grinding noise then Stop riding the bike NOW. If you continue to ride, or run the engine, you will only do more internal damage and make the repair cost higher. Chances are you have a bent shift fork and the noise is the engaging dogs on the slider gear grinding the side of a fixed gear because the bent fork is preventing full engagement.

The entire engine comes out of the frame and gets completely torn down. The top end comes off, the case covers come off, the clutch, shift shaft, kick starter, flywheel and electrics all come off. Then the case is split to gain access to the gears and shift drum. The gears and shift drum now get removed and now the fork can be replaced. If a gear needs to be replaced because of a broken teeth, replace also any gear the teeth mesh with. A few special tools are needed. Sorry for having to give you the bad news.

WHEN I POOT THE BIKE INTO FIST OR SECOND IT SLAMES


If the shifting makes the bike "slam" into gear then the engine is running too fast. Put the bike in first gear when the engine is running at a slow speed. When shifting into second gear, let off the throttle as you shift. Do not power shift, use the clutch always.
.
The rattling noise could be many things. Is something loose on the bike? Are you using premium gas? Lower grades of gas can cause pre-ignition / detonation / engine knock < what ever you care to call it. This is VERY bad for a motor. Only use premium gas and do not us gas with Ethanol.
