puke Clank in the bottom end of the motor

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?!

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?
