Vibration/ticking sounds in idle

Recommended Posts

Hello people, i own a ktm 150 sx 2017

And it works great but when it’s in idle there’s two main sounds one of them is the pipe - the good sound

The other is a ticking/vibration sound coming from somewhere bottom end,

Sometimes it goes away sometimes it comes back.

It doesn’t stop when i pull the clutch.

What can it be?

If you have a skidplate on it, make sure it's not a rock caught between it and the engine that you're hearing.

Check the bike over good for loose fasteners.

You can use a length of hose/tubing held to your ear, like a stethoscope, to probe around where you think the noise is coming from, to pinpoint it.
