Check behind the sprocket casing it could be just muck and grease causing it.

Hi,it sounds from what you are saying that you have got a inturnal falt with the gearbox,im affried the only way to make a propper diagnoses is to take it apart and look at the gear sincros there has to be worn bearings,or teeth on the gears,or the sellector,or something has just manidged to come loose.
I wish you all thhe best.

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

Checking timing chain


They are a bit noisy sometimes, hopefully it's nothing serious, good solid bikes those so you should be good.
Check you have the correct oil in there, if your running a thin oil, it may increase the noise and wearing.
Try this, when its parked up and idling cold (when you start it up in the morning) get a screwdriver or somthing similar place the metal part of the screwdriver on the engine where you think the noise is coming from, then put your ear on the handle, doing this you will be able to pin point exactly where the noise is coming from buy moving the screwdriver around the casting also you can really hear her tick.
do it again when she's hot noting the difference of any. If it continues to get noisier, strip her down and have a look in there, could be just the tensioner/guides.
good luck

Hi there I own a Yamaha 1000 thunderace 1998.When I pull away there is a chain sound that desturbs the clean sound the enjin makes when driving.The bike does not miss fire and changes gears smoothly.when...


By chain sound do you mean a metalic rattle when you ride off?
I will assume that is not making that sound at idle. It could be that your cam chain has stretched and needs to either be replaced or tensioned.

If it is a pinking sound, sort of like someone tapping on a tin can with a coin. Then that is most likely preignition which isn't good for your engine. Why octane/RON fuel do you use?

I have a 2003 Harley road king Police bike. I have 10000 miles on it. I am erperiencing a chinging sound when downshifting. I suspect the tension on the small chain inside the transmission. Is there a way...


I'm sorry but there is no chain in a Harley transmission. The only chains on your bike is in the cam chest of the engine. They drive the two camshafts that operate the valves.

Now, most of the time when riders complain about a "chirping" noise when they shift gears, it's because the final drive belt is too loose. It will make a noise every time you shift a gear, up or down. Check the tension on your rear belt and see if that helps.

Good Luck

When warm i notice a cam chain type noise. could this be a worn cam chain tensioner . the bike has covered 36000 miles


it can either be a worn tensioner or need for a valve adjustment. if you rev the engine and noise goes away, you need a new cam chain tensioner. if the noise remains or gets worse when you rev it up, you need a valve adjustment and should replac the tensioner anyway. 36,000 miles on the motor is definitely mileage for an adjustment if it's never had one.

I have value train niose in the front head 2002 low rider is this normal


Depends. You will get some valve noise as the bike gets older, however, this noise is only noticable at Idle. If you are getting a loud enough noise at crouse speed to the point of being annoying then the chances are you have a lifter that is starting to collapse. This is upper end noise only. If you are getting a lower end noise and have at least 30,000 miles on the bike. Chances are the valve drive chain tensioners are going. This is a known problem with twin cam engines. I have two twin cams and had to replace the tensioners on both. My advice to you if this is the problem is to go to Gear Drive cams. I did it without any regrets. I have a quicker power response and was able to increase my rev. limit speed by almost 200 rpms. The down side according to some is a wining noise. I don't get any noise I can hear over my Python 3 pipes. In my opinion the benefits out weigh the noise. Without having the bike in front of me this is the best I can suggest.

Ticking noise in 6th mainly on deceleration


Check your chain and sprockets, sometimes the chain wears the sprocket out, "curving" the teeth so it hooks the chain. You probably have the ticking in lower gears as well, but it only hooks the chain at speed - and in 6th the engine revs are lower, the engine is quieter, so you hear the chain easier.

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.
