Question about Triumph Sprint RS Motorcycles
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.
