  1. Hey everyone, just got my P's last weekend, was happy to change over to the cleaner red side of my plates. Still got alot to learn tho but I enjoy every moment on my bike... as much as I would love to push it off a cliff and get a bigger one, $12.80 an hour means that wont be happening soon ](*,)

    A bit about me, im 18 live near point cook and ride my 1993 (same year as i was born :angel: ) GPX 250, which seems to have some issues but I love riding so im out pretty much every day :)

  2. ten bucks say you push that gpx off a cliff and it'll still run...lol love the bloody things

    welcome mate.
  3. I might have to hold you to that one day :p

    I just dont know if its meant to be that loud or if it means something is playing with me, noisey little thing my GPX and as soon as I hit 6k.. it sounds alot worse :(
  4. make a video of it and upload a link? gpx's do generally have a loud knocking sound when idling ...
  5. this isnt on idle, this is while riding, when I went for my P's the instructor said it sounded like a hole in the muffler. but when he looked over my bike he couldnt find anything majorly wrong. And after the terrible stuff around and $700 cost of my last service I think it will be a little while before I take it in again (but thats a whole new thread)
