    Re: Chattering on take off

    That bolt is the swing arm attaching bolt... It should NOT BE LOOSE.. Consider that like a LOOSE WHEEL..

    4-6" of chain is way too much and your likely to throw it thru the engine cases or have it come off and get tangled in the rear sprocket-Either being catastrophic..

    Did you look in your owners manual about adjusting the chain?? It's very easy to do, might take 20 minutes with the bikes tool kit, faster with "real tools"..

    Again, do you have an owners manual?

    As for spark plug wires, their short and as I re-call, the caps slightly angled.. And no, the wires shouldn't be bent back on itself. Pull it off, re-route as necessary and re-install. Some dielectric grease on the edge of the cap(where it meets the valve cover) will make installation and later removal MUCH easier. You should hear and feel a snap if the cap is fully on the plug..


    **Either you or the shop needs to go over that bike completely. Between the chain, swingarm and odd unk noises your playing with fire.

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Lol yea i know i am likely going to use the adjusters tonight to tightwn that bugger up just so i dont you know have the worst happen and yea ill likely have a good motorcycle tech go over it when i get some more money. I can ussaly spot an issue and fix it but the more deeply technical that requires special tools i leave to professionals. I know a few shops in my area and a full look over wil come i think during the winter. Till then i am just going to trouble shoot on my own. Once i have the safety hazards fixed i should be good.

    Thank you all for all the great feed back i really apreciate it and love to bounce my thoughts off people when it comes to guess work.

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Tonight i took the cover off the bike and was welcomed with this huge glob of old tary greeasey residue. Obviously this cover has never been removed ever.. Also this washer is bent how do ypu sugest i remove the nut and correct it. Cleaned out all the crud i could will be more in depth later but for now a tightening and de globing is all i can doChattering on take off-20190729_221729-jpgso figure this baseball sized glob was what was holding my chsin and bike back during operation and was causing some of the issue. Unfortunately the loud ticking is coming from the gear box still and is it normal for the bike in neutral to for the bike to make the wheel roll slowly when you bring the rpms up? Thinking the clutch is maybe still partly grabing even with full depresion of the clutch handelChattering on take off-20190729_221955-jpg

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Looks like you need a new sprocket. If it is that worn your chain and rear sprocket should also be replaced. Good job getting it cleaned up. The clicking may be coming from the chain to sprocket wear. That washer is supposed to be bent. The washer has a keyway notch that slides into the output shaft. This keeps the nut from turning. When the sprocket is replaced you will need to unbend that washer and replace with a new one. Once your new sprocket is replaced, you will rebend the new washer against the flat of the nut.

    When you adjust your chain slack with the old chain you will probably find the slack changes as you rotate the rear wheel. This indicates the chain is worn as well as the O rings and may not allow the links to relax.

    Never clean the chain while the engine is running! I've seen injuries there is no turning back from

    As already mentioned this work should be completed by an experienced person/technician. A driveline failure can put a rider and bike down really fast.

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Yea i did every thing to spec seemed my back tire was slightly out of alignment which caused the slack this morning the bike was nearly silky smooth threw gears. I also shifted the shifter down a tiny cause i had to heal toe really high even with my thick bike boots. Once i get the time tho ill be striping it and cleaning every spec of tary gunk i can find.

    Any particular stuff you guys use to clean your chains and left over grease off? The person i got the bike from had some motul chain cleaner but want to clean places like the sprocket. And plastic cover.

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Some progress, good.

    As noted above, don't remove the front sprocket or the tab that locks it on until your ready to replace the WORN OUT SPROCKET and Chain..

    I use Motul chain cleaner myself along with a chain brush (has bristles on 3 sides). It's the best product I've found to clean the chain. When rinsing with water, do not use high pressure, it's not needed. just a light flow, let the chemical do the work.. The Motul will work fine in other greasy area's as well (including the sprockets).

    A product called S100 works very well on grease and in tight spots too

    And yes, the rear wheel will move some in neutral, on the center stand running.. It's just parasitic drag. Don't touch the clutch.

    You should lube the clutch cable. If you can... It'll pull easier and shift better once lubed.


    Reading and following the owners manual will make it much easier for you..

    Re: Chattering on take off

    Lol i mentioned that on the first page in a separate talk box lol its a 2006 and yes i have the manuel lol. Been flipping threw it a lot lately hehe.

    In all honesty tho eveything on this bike needs service so i been taking it one part at a time. When i do the swing arm ill be completely degreasing the back of the bike. As i believe this is the main source of thunking duringbumps.

    Mean time ill be rerouting the spark plugs and checking them tonight. More pictures will follow as i go. By the way this this bike carberated? Seams fuel injected to me.

    So what sprockets do you suggest. I think this one has a jt sprocket in it cause the stock one I don’t think has rubber on it. I was thinking of replacing it with the jt sprocket when I do it cause of the rubber bump it has on it.

    I'd stick with the OEM sprockets...

    The OEM chain is also a very, very good choice and does NOT have a master link / attaching link-it's continuous.
    *You do have to pull the swingarm back a bit to slip the new chain in ( a bit more involved) but again, no ML to get pressed.

    Maintain the chain and sprockets and you'll get 20-25,000 miles out of them..


    Your current front sprocket IS a Yamaha sprocket-No others have that plastic ridge the chain rollers touch..


    Yours is a first here with posted worn swing arm bearings to your extent...
    Depending on much it's moving, it'll affect chain tension as you ride, (not good).

    Lastly, be careful putting the sprocket cover back on. It's VERY EASY to pinch the two wires (that are just forward of that cover) under the cover. Make sure you can see/touch them both after you put the cover back on..

    Yea I figured it more then likely had to be the bearings at 36000 and no lube itís likely a huge mess in that swing arm. Iíll be ordering a sleeve seals bolt and bearings when I do it. And Iíll likely grab a new chain and sprocket when I do it.might as well I figure.

    And yea I noticed those wires and was careful to not pinch um. I even shifted one up a bit so less of its slack was hanging below it when I put it togeather. So Iíll order oem parts for it later on when I do it. Think that service will likely run me a few hundred but heíll i can do that service in my sleep. Only thing I am afraid of is the valve clearance check. I have a shop that I can trust with it but itís still going to cost me a lot to have done.

    I might do it myself as it gives me a chance to learn more about the bike. Spark plugs will get replaced when I rearrange the wires so the left side is not pinched so bad. If I can get my camera to work on record I may record the things I am doing. But I may need a better camera mine is only 9 mega pixels lol
