While riding this weekend, I thought I could hear something rattling but I had helmet on and nothing sounded wrong with the bike so I wasn't too worried. Pulled the quads off the trailer today and while it was cold and idling there is a definite clanking in the bottom end of the motor. I WANT TO SAY it only happens when the clutch is pulled, but I can't say that is 100% accurate. I'm going to wait for it to cool down again and then make a video of it so you guys can hear it, but I heard from the garage and the quad was 50 feet away in the street. It went away when it warmed up. Anyone have any ideas?! :confused:

the turbo encabulator must be going out. Seriously though, You have the oil filter in correctly?

That's kind of what I was thinking, but then I thought the flux muster was burping and that's normal.

yeah, the filter has been in it for a while now. I'll have video later today of it, its not constant, its odd. I guess it could use an oil change...

I was wondering too is it normal when you shift into first from reverse or reverse to first for it to shift hard? or have to let clutch out a little for it to engage? im just hoping the new quad i bought doesnt turn out to be a lemon before i make my first payment.

Yeah, you have to let it out a little bit somtimes. It's all in how the gears are meshed I think.

Just guessing, but to me that sound like valvetrain noise, or a timing chain slap. Could be a malfunction of the auto decompression?

Hmm thats kinda odd, It doesn't sound like engine noise though. From what I can hear it sounds like something tore up on the clutch

I have the same thing and over the past week we noticed that DaGirl's is doing same thing. Only when the clutch is held in. I believe after the bike has been running it doesn't do it but have not really checks for it.

Anyone brought there's into the dealer yet for it? Mine is headed to the dealer tomorrow for the pin hole in the radiator, I will have them check this issue as well.

At first that's what I thought but you would think it would go away when the clutch is engaged or disengaged - it would vary some.

In my video at the end, I put it in gear, hold the break and let out on the clutch - you can tell that when you put a load on it - it really starts to clatter - constantly. Mines headed to the dealer tomorrow as well.

5WOP3,
I listened carefully and think that the spark plug cap is partially off the plug. As the noise appears the engine runs erratically. It sound like the loss of spark is causing it. Check to see if the cap is on all the way. That noise sound exactly like a spark bridging the cap.
Keep us informed.

I thought that too, and i've heard what noise on another vehicle - this is DEFINITELY a lot louder than the spark arcing.
