A Few Questions

Recommended Posts

1. How do you know when your chain, and brake discs are worn?:D

2. My younger brother was riding my bike and i noticed a loud sharp clanging noise and knew he was lugging it bad. What is this nosie, what causes it, and how bad is it?🙂

3. What is valve chatter? Heard this from some guys on here and didnt know what it meant.

4. If I'm not doing extreme riding, how long will my stock piston and rings last?

I know the questions are not related at all but just need some answers. Thanks.

#1 replace the chain when it gets so you can move it side to side. another good way to tell is if you can lift the chain off the back sprocket its time to replace.

#2 duno

#3 usually that refers to the valves not sealing when they should because the springs arent pulling them up fast enough

#4 this is debatable... i run myn about 100 hours trail riding and a bit of track.
