Hi, i have a 1993 250 Eliminator, has a knocking noise on l/h side of engine but when clutch is pulled in it stops , any ideas ??? Cheers Trevor
G'day.Well.I would have said straight away - clutch hub rattle. But noise from the L/H side(& seeing that the clutch is on the right).
Maybe its the counterbalancer dampers are worn out- But it looks on the fisch that you can only get the whle shaft- NASTY.
Hmmm again.where to go from here?
You see,clutch hub rattle is common on bikes that have seen a few km's.It's caused by the steel gear at the back of the clutch hub moving-in relation to the clutch hub.Most manufacturers put damper springs in them to reduce loads as the clutch opperates & these "sack out"(loose tension).
Like I said,this is REALLY COMMON on heaps of bikes & isn't that much to worry about.
But seeing your noise is comming from the L/H SIDE it may be the counterbalance shaft is also dampened & the springs are sacked out in it.You can see the diagrams at http//www.mrcycles.com select kawasaki parts- select model- year (if not there check under all modles-it's in there cause i'm looking at it now)
When you find the right fisch- look under crankshaft to see also the counter balancer shaft.
Yes it is showing damper springs in the counterbalancer- but not as a seperate part. NOOOO.
All I can suggest you do if your sure the noise is on the L/H side would be to pull the cover off & inspect the counterbalancer damper springs & also the other parts behind there like the flywheel bolt & stator mounting bolts.
I'm not sure if this has helped, if you have further queries I'm happy to help.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli
