Hi Netriders. I have a clackering noise when I slow my bike down. It's like... well.. A clacker clacker clacker... :? Shuddup. You try to describe a motorcycle noise in text! Annnyway. The noise happens when I slow down regardless of braking or just down changing. I have Yamaha TT250R with 13,000km on the clock. I suspect it's the drive chain as it shuts up when I accelerate. The noise was noticable when I got the bike (about 1000 km's ago) but doesn't make the noise much now unless I have my girlfriend on pillion. She weighs about 80 kg's. Although don't tell her I posted that on the internet otherwise I'll have a clackering noise somewhere else Do I need to tighten my chain? I've lubed it. The chain seems within the correct limits. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
