Question about Cycling

1 Answer

It sounds like it's in the pedal area. It is making a rattling when I ride my bike. I just bought this bike last week. There doesn't look like there's a way for me to get into where the pedals are.

Rattling not rubbing?

The chain could be rubbing the front derailleur if you have one. Can't tell from the non-description of the bike.

1995 Buell S2 Battery will not start the bike


Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge, if you connect a volt meter just after charging you will get a good reading, each cell of a battery is 2.2 volts so you should have a reading of 13 volts. Battery may have a faulty cell, which will drag the other cells down, is the electolite covering the plates in all the cells, this will affect the battery's ability to hold a charge. My Suzuki did this earlier on this year, nearly bought a new battery, checked and topped up the electolite first and its been fine since

Rattling sound when i ride my new bike


If you bought the bike new you should be returning it to the seller on warranty. You should never attempt any type of repair, let alone taking apart bearings, on a new piece of equipment that is under warranty. Your feet are turning pedals, not petals.

I toook the msf course last august. My only reasons were that i was tired of riding on the bike of bikes with guys and decided to flex my independence. i however dropped the bike in the msf course but i still passed and got my endorsement. i bought a ninja 250 and rode it under various conditions here in NYC. (just use your imagination). i didnt get a lot of mileage in but i learned some valualbe lesson, so, i was going to keep the 250 and the sv but i got an offer for the 250 and i am going to sell it. i like the smaller cc bike because it is easy to handle and forgiving yet it is still a motorcycle. the sv650 is that venture into a more serious bike and if you are not heavy handed on the throttle and can handle the shifting the bike should be fun and a learning experience. the main reason i bought is the comfort for longer rides and touring. the 250 just wasnt made for that. i am planning to do more rides to vermont, new england and the delaware/maryland area. i know the torque and horsepower are totally different from the 250 but i can appreciate the difference. it also have benefited from chatting in the forums. i almost bought a zzr but realized i was way out of my league! OK...I think I made a point :thumbsup:

figure I'll throw in my 2cents from my own experience. I picked up the SV650 as my first bike last year. I had not been on a bike thats not pedal powered before, however I used to live on my bicycle, did lengthy tours on it, commute on it, modded it, did all the work on it myself. My point being I knew I loved the feeling of being on two wheels, riding. And I was very experienced with being a bike in traffic. so that was going to be a non-issue. I picked up a book called "How to Ride a Motorcycle" by Pat Hahn. In there he says In the authors opinion Suzuki can claim to offer the best all around beginner bike in the SV650. Light, nimble, quick, adaptable, fun, and cheap, its easy to ride - which means you'll learn very quickly - yet versatile enough to keep you entertained for a while. Great I thought, but he also stressed the importance of the MSF beginners course. So I got myself into a class and practiced in my apartment complex on my sv while I waited. When I took the class I was amazed at how much I learned so quickly on the nighthawk 250. I left feeling very confident having received a perfect score on my test (in fact the instructor said that if all his students had my kind of background on bicycles he'd have a class full of perfect scores, pretty cool I thought) After that riding the SV became easier and my learning has continued full boar.

The point of this rambling is that the SV was an acceptable beginners bike for me and apparently for many. But if I was forced to spend a year on the nighthawk 250, I'd surely learn more faster.

When 'riding" or when 'pedaling'. The only moving parts are the wheels and the drivetrain. The chain can be rubbing somewhere. Narrow it down for us by observing.

http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/trouble-shooting-a-creaky-or-noisy-drive-train

Most bikes aneed a tune-up after the initial break-in to account for shifter and brake cables stretching.

You'll find all the adjustments the same place.

Google this "how to shift gears on a road bike" and choose from the many videos and articles.

The gears are there to allow you to match your effort to the conditions. It pays enormously to understand how to manage them.

Though I am an experienced cyclist and don't need to be taught shifting I thought this video was pretty good and gave him a buck for his efforts.

'02 Yamaha XJR1300 Rattle/vibrating noise from bottom of engine


how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !

thanks xjr cambs
