when my bike slows *(with clutch in) or is low revs less than 4'000 rpm. there is like a grinding sound. its not the chain being loose and everything seems to be ok. any ideas?

sounds like the rear sporcket but could be middle. when i get home ill try n listen a bit more clear. thought shit my chain will come off again at first but it's tight. got a feeling it could have a kink in it or something. might nip garage after work 2moro.

I was thinking bearings at first, at least until you mentioned your chain. If your chain has come off or if its knackered anyway then I'd recommend the first thing you do is buy a new chain and sprockets. Secondly, you say your chain is tight, this worries me, because I wouldn't really call a correctly fitted chain "tight". :shock:

Sounds like a tight chain to me.


Best to slacken it as soon as possible. a tight chain will stretch quicker, and can bend your engines output shaft. Which is an absolute disaster.
