Awful engine knocking
Hi Folks, nice to be here. I'm in a desperate state after owning this '07 250R since last summer it started to make an awful sound from the engine area which I recorded an audio clip
of, taken while the bike was stationary.
The sound comes and goes but it is embarassing and sucks the joy out of riding. I would describe it as a clattering sound. It gets worse as the bike warms up and is more noticeable while downshifting. It persists at idle most of the time.
I took it to the shop, who did a carb sync (I had cleaned it last year) as well as adjusted the clutch grip cable and secured a loose exhaust shield, none of this has addressed the issue. They mentioned 'clutch basket' but I don't know how that could make such a sound without affecting the shifting, etc.
Any ideas what to look at next? Thanks so much!
