Re: Clattering noise...Cam chain tensioner, or lean knocking
how loud would the slides be???
this almost makes sense to me, as they only do it with the throttle open.
at the rev range where it rattles, if i back off the throttle just slightly, the noise dissappears, then when i roll it back on, the noise starts again.
i had the needles adjusted rich, and the bike was stuttering and horrid to ride because it was obviously too rich in the low range, but the noise was still there. so this weekend, i adjusted the needles back to where they were. now its very smooth and nice to ride with decent power, but still has the horrid noise.
for $70 i am gonna replace the CCT anyway, but then if the noise is still there, i will look into the slides.
Let me know how you go if you find your problem too Archer...
