New to Honda is this noise normal

Recommended Posts

Yep, sounds normal since you have it up on a stand (pushes sound upwards). Used to get a lot of post when folks would put a metal skid plate on and you would hear all kinds of crazy sounds coming up!!!

G,

I've had an '03, '07, 12,  and now a 17 and I posted in this forum about how disappointed I was in the 17 (clutch toasted less than 30 hrs, new top end like 2 weeks ago). I think (and mechanic thinks) I got a lemon (poor workmanship from what he can tell after replacing parts) since this bike has never seen a race (yet) and all the others I raced HS and MX (full seasons here in FL). I usually get about 2 yrs b4 a top end and never had a clutch go on the others!!! (I did have the cam shaft tensioner go on the '07 - mechanic said he's never seen a Honda one break- Suzuki yes, Honda never, until me;)

Change your oil often, like every 3-5 rides, keep the air filter spotless and keep the bike clean and you should have a great bike!!!!:thumbsup:

also make sure before you kick it hard just gently push the kicker so that the motor is at top dead center thats when you wanna kick it hard

Yah I always do that I got into a habit with that because my kx250f I had was fully built and the only way I could get a good kick on it was from top dead center but it’s fire first kick every time

true true also sometimes it helps to pump the throttle like 2 or 3 times before kicking unless you have efi then i dont think it will do anything oh and dont do this more than once before it starts or you might flood the motor
