Any one ever developed a clanky knoking sound?

starting to think the cam chain or something needs work o.O

Do you have a MCCT?

no clue havent looked :D I know the wiseco piston will clank a bit when its cold though atm after riding to work I put the bike in idle and fire her up and it is clanking despite being warm o.O

The MCCT will be clearly visible - looks quite different from the auto one. If you have the manual one fitted, adjusting it by ear is quite easy.

ok where and what does it look like?

Circled red is the MCCT and circled blue is the stock ACCT.

Think you can only get them from overseas... Thumpertalk Store etc...

Just remember that DRZ motors are normally loud and klanky...

I have not yet found one in SA but if I recall correctly the Busa and Honda CRF450 uses the same CCT so one should be able to get it somewhere locally.

k so I dropped the bike on the way to lecap.

monte vista turn off i took the left and at the intersection took the left, as I turned into the corner the back wheel started slipping out like mad, tried to brake didnt help so gave it gas which corrected the line though as it hit the other side of the tire the bike slid again and went down.

turn out the bike was pissing oil onto the back wheel so as soon as I hit the corner it was show time lol :-p

Bike is fine mostly, sliders and footpeg on the right scratched and very little else. I on the other hand am bruised like a mother fucker, right ankle swolen up as well as both wrists. some nice impact brusies all over my left side. might be something small busted in my right foot though is suspect its just twisted and badly bruised.

big up to lecap for coming to fetch me, taking the bike to his workshopa nd dropping me off at the office again.

Aag no man - heal soon and glad the bike is not too damaged. They seem to be bullet proof but does unfortunately bring out the hooligan in you especially in motard form

Circled red is the MCCT and circled blue is the stock ACCT.

2003 and later ACCT's are fine, the MCCT maybe unbreakable but it's not user proof. I'd rather have my cam chain tensioner do the work than me guessing if it's tight enough or when it needs adjustment.
