06 510...startin to feel a little ragged...

Recommended Posts

so i've got 4500 miles on my sm 510 now. the motor has not given me any problems so far...has only needed one valve adjustment (checked regularly). i've changed the oil at every 500 miles and kept the filter clean. but now the motor feels pretty "loose" or maybe a little "ragged". i guess i've ridden it a little hard. i'm always on the gas when i'm riding. i'm always keepin it revvin a little bit. is there anything i need to check? do i need to do rings and a piston? what should be done at this mileage, if anything?

on edit: by ragged/loose i mean the engine just doesn't feel as responsive anymore. and more vibration at certain engine speeds. btw: the packing is getting pretty blown out in my silencer. that couldn't do it right?

Muffler packing, loose steering head bearings, loose motor mounts, linkage bearings, the lower shock bearing on mine went first,,,it all adds up and makes a bike feel clapped out. Give her a once over & repack the silencer since you already know it is shot.
