    Hello girls and boys, I know a bit about bikes, but not much about this one other than basics. I don't know about it's quirks or things to look watch out for. Like on old zx11'the alt chain tensioner snaps and lodges in the clutch and explodes it for example. I bought this very clean 14,000mi...

    So I have some top end noise from my 05 636 and I recently read a bunch of crap on the Internet and went and replaced the timing chain tensioner. Didn't fix anything . So I checked the valve clearance and found only one valve was off by .02 mm . That's ridiculously small . So I decided to put it...

Its starting to happen more often now, it only normally does it when im going over 35 in first and than go to shift...

    I'm new to this forum and this is my first thread post. I just bought a brand new 2011 zx6r that was on a redtag sale clearance. This is my 3rd bike but it's been 8 years since my last 600. I know that the break in of a bike should be taken with some caution (don't redline it, go through the...

    Hey folks, I'm new to bikes in general and still quite new to this particular bike as well, but I have a mechanical issue that started a day or two ago and is really bothering me. When I slow down (braking or just engine) I hear this sort of metalic clacking noise. It really sounds like some...

    Hi everyone I am new to this and was wondering what my tapping might be. Whenever I am going and I pull in my clutch I feel a tap on my feet through my pegs. I also hear it and I can't tell if it is coming from the motor or maybe my chain is slapping the swingarm. Any input would be greatly...
