We all ride the same bike.
Same here. But this work isn't going to do itself, nor is the paycheck gonna sign itself.Some that claim to have the alleged rattle are afraid to ride their bike. That's really a shame... I wish I could be out riding right now.
Jeez, people can't fill their tank and you expect them to figure that out.......dreamer. And about you being sexySame here. But this work isn't going to do itself, nor is the paycheck gonna sign itself.
Over in Rebel 250 land, there's the never ending (well, relatively common, let's say) strings of rattle/vibration/weird noise/sounds like it's going to pop threads.
The Rebby has no tach- instead, there is a red line circle around the speedo, where the lines "break off" with a number beside them.
Here's a sexy pic titled "Me In My Speedo":
Those are the redline road speeds for each gear. Most new rebby riders (and many experienced) will not take the bike to the red in any gear because they're afraid "it's going to pop!" That lil twin, much like the lil thumper in the weebr, it just loves to rev. It redlines at 10k...
"It rattles!" Yep, it's an engine. You're sitting on it.
Do you still have the plate you removed?I have been riding since the mid 60's and just recently bought a cbr250r. It has rattled since day one at 5,500 to 7,000 rpm but it ran very strong.
I waited until after my 600 mile service (which went well and everything was fine other than 2 valve shims had to be replaced). The rattle was still there.
I was curious about the pair valve which is located on the valve cover. I removed the reed valve and the port plate below the reed valve. The port plate was totally loose in there. It is a very inexpensive part, stamped steel plate with holes to direct air to the pair valve. I removed the plate, put everything back together and disabled the pair valve by plugging the air line going in and capping the fitting going out. THE RATTLE IS GONE!
It instantly went from sounding like the engine was going to self destruct to a sweet sounding machine.
The plate is removed but the valve itself was left in because it seals the chamber rather than a traditional gasket. CeeBeeArr made a post about a year ago with pics. It should be the second post on this linkDo you still have the plate you removed?
could you post a pic of it please?
