Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

I have a 2012 cbr 250 and when starting it makes a loud sound like meatal on metal. It also makes that sound when idle but when I rev the engine it doesnt make that noise. What could be wrong


It may be piston slap if your idle speed is particularly low, but that's a bit strange for a new-ish bike. Hard to diagnose online - why not drop in to your dealer for a quick appraisal by one of the mechanics?

My 97 bmw is hard to start and when it does it makes a loud clanking noise


To be honest I believe it could be your starter and/or battery's. If its makes a clanking noise from what I know it should be the starter.

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine


this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck

Driver side front....here a clanking noise especially when i go over bumps and when in reverse...just did pads and roters about 2 weeks ago...any ideas?


I would start with sway bar links because they do make clanking noises when worn. plus they are usually cheaper than a strut or a cv shaft...

Clanking noise under front drivers side - small bumps and turns...


CV joints yes look at the rubber boots for damage. You can get a replacement boot but if you do remove all the old grease to remove any dirt that is cousing your problem.

Loud clanking noise in dishwasher


Most likely the motor as food caught in the sump would not make a noise you described.
