Strange clicking sound
« on: November 04, 2020, 07:14:30 AM »
Hello just thought I would get an opinion on this clicking I thought it was the chain loose so adjusted it to the correct play but when I pull off it does it for a short time (sounds like a playing card in bike spokes) not sure if it does it when I pull the clutch in as like I said only does it for a short time though it might b chain taking up slack but not sure now any ideas
Thanks

Have you checked that the rubber running strip is intact?

^^^ or crud in front sprocket. Loose/tight spots in chain.

Could possibly be a loose front sprocket. There is a locking plate there so it won't come off but it may not be threaded tightly on the shaft. Or it could also be that the chain is worn and so the links will be noisy on the front sprocket.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Have you tried putting the bike on its centre stand to allow you to run the engine in gear to make it easier to stand next to the bike to better hear where the clicking is coming from?

If that were my situation, I'd be checking that she isn't knitting you a new hat........(wot may be causing the clicking)
