Re: SXC not Idling

Thanks Steve , it is an awesome bike. If I ever do decide to sell it, I will definitely call you first. Thanks for the help in figuring out the noise I was hearing. The bike runs like a scalded rat! I am ordering the water pump rebuild kit and a new clutch slave. The Water pump is due and there is a...

Video of Engine Noise

Here is a couple videos I took today where the noise is pretty easy to hear. Looking back at one of the filters that came out of the bike, it looks like it has a little wave to it. Enough of one that I am going to go ahead and rebuild the water pump. I will be able to access the timing chain and che...

Re: Funny Engine noise

I was thinking it might be the decomp making noise or the top end wasn't getting enough oil. Tensioner is a possibility as well.

Re: Funny Engine noise

Between 7-8k on the bike. Even though I got it two years ago, a shoulder injury kept me off of the bike until this week. So all I can go by is what it sounded like when I rode it home after I bought it. Valves were checked just before I got it and were fine.

Re: D.A.M.N. riders?

I am riding some DS stuff this weekend. It will be pretty lightweight and shorter until my shoulder completely heals up over the next several weeks. Now that I am finally back on the bike, I doubt there will be many weeks that I don't ride dirt at least one day.
