Knocking noise of chain in honda dream yuga bike when accelerating after shifting the gears. i have tightened the chain but still it happens.


That knocking noise could be that the teeth on your main drive are worn out and chain is jumping them on acceleration.Pull th primary cover and check the drive gear for chain on motor sprocket.Replace it if worn to that point.

Popping noise coming from front sprocket when wheel is turned on 01 suzuki gsxr 600


hi it sounds like your front sproket is really worn and hooked when you turn the chain its not releasing the links smoothly ,replace it with a new one and check the condition of your chain it may be worth replacing a complete chain and sproket set as running a bike with a worn front sproket could lead to a back wheel locking up at speed if the chain jams

I own a 2004 BMW R1200CL. Almost every time I crank the engine I can hear the valves rattle. I have checked and adjusted the valve clearances to spec. The rattle goes away after the engine starts, but...


Yep, most of these bikes do rattle on startup. The noise is from cam chain slack. A hydraulic tensioner is used in the engine on each side as there are two cam chains. The tensioner leaks down after the engine sits for a while and the chain rattles for a few seconds till the tensioner gets pumped back full of oil again. Once the chain is tight again, then no noise.

BMW came out with an improved tensioner (doesn't leak down as quickly) that you can install on your engine to fix the rattle. Note that it is much easier to change the RHS tensioner than the LHS one.

Good Luck!

Ocassionally rattling on start up and durring throttle release


It sounds to me like the primary chain may be rattling. When you start the bike, the engine is cold and the chain is at it's loosest. As you ride, it tightens up as the engine cases heat up and expand. But, when you let off on the throttle, the slack in the chain goes to the top run. This causes the chain to "lift" off the small engine sprocket. If it is loose enough, it will hit the top of the inner primary housing on the inside. Check the tension of the primary chain. It should be 3/4" to 7/8" when the engine is cold.

I'm sorry that this is about the best I can do since I'm not in a position to hear the noise for myself. It's a "best guess" check this situation. I ride a 1994 FXDWG and I love it. Just turned over 30K, no major repairs.

Good Luck

Cant undo nut


No they are not left hand thead,normal r/h thread.
make sure chain is still on bike and front sproket and then try good rattle gun. if this does not work,put bike in gear and hold on rear brake and use long breaker bar, if still no good will need to heat front sproket nut with oxy set very carefully and rattle off with rattle gun while nut is hot
