Engine noise Final drive???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys was out at a local practice track last friday and the front sprocket cracked, so i fitted a new one and went back out a couple more laps in the chain snapped and jammed the front sprocket and stopped the engine dead

I replaced the split link and went to restart the bike but the kickstart was solid so give up for the day got the bike home and it kicked off was very confused only issue is when going up the road makes a horrible clicking noise causing the chain to slap i replaced the timing chain since this happened as it had stretched slightly all the clearences are good and there is no auto decompression on the exhaust cam and doesnt sound to be coming from top end anyone had any similar issues i have fitted a new chain incase it was damaged aswel as the rear sprocket sounds like its from the final drive output shaft any ideas

Thanks lee

had a chain wad up on my kids bike once and it stopped so fast it sheared two teeth off a shaft in the tranny. had to replace the shaft and all was good.
