pw50 piston slap

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a pw50 engine which makes a rattle noise at idle speed. It sounds sort of like a Ducati dry clutch. Is that piston slap? When dissasembling the cyclinder, the piston and the connecting rod did not seem to have much play. What's the likely cause for the slap or the rattle noise? Thanks!

check the exhaust guards and the exhaust with it running press on various object to see if that stops the noise could just be something loose without hearing it first hand its hard for me to say, can you take a video of it and put it on youtube? that way i can hear it?
