I have loose rubber tubes hanging from the bike, any Ideas to what there for or where they should go? I just bought a 82 suzuki gs650.


One will be for the battery venting (connects to the vent connection on the battery), another will be a vent tube for the fuel tank. Any others may be vent tubes for the crankcase.

Very bad rattle noise in top of a 4.0 overhead cam .gas engine but sounds like a diesel !


Sounds like a bad timing chain probably in the passenger side rear of the head. If it the one in the front on the other side that one is not too bad but if its the one in the back on the passenger side its a big job. (have to pull the engine out of the Explorer) Its the chain that runs the cam. The guides go bad and make it rattle like a son of a gun but will still seem to run okay. Stop running it, if the chain jumps your engine is shot. At the point you are at it only needs a chain and new guides. Hope this helps good luck. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I just did a rear chain in a 1999 overhead cam a week ago and not too many people know much about changing them or timing them.

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!

82 GS650, slipping in second gear only. this is a smooth action that is happening no hard banging. it was junping out of all the gears before I replaced the cam shifter and it was making some major noise....


Ok got it, you have a worn or bent shift fork and worn gear cogs transmission work needed to fix this problem. If you decide to have it repaired make sure to inspect all the gears and forks.
Good luck.

I have a suzuki GS650gt 1984 which sounds OK on tickover. Rev it hard and there is a rattle. How can you tell if the crank bearings are on the way out?


could just be a timing chain. I'm not sure but I have heard that the slides in the carbs can rattle a bit also.

Noise from engine a rattle


does it sound like a chain rattle if so could be either cam chain tensioner needs replacing or even the cam chain itself is the noise bad because all chain driven cam engines make some noise
