  1. okay i got a pitbike yeah a pitbike i got it for a good price it was working perfect and has been for ages tonight i took it out for a ride and when i gave it flat out in 4 gear it kinda died out it wouldn't keep at the same speed. its was doing some strange things. also i have noticed sometimes when i rev it up it makes a strange sound almost like a raw metal rubbing sound i know there is enough oil and all but i still don't know whats up.

    can someone please help me

  2. eeehm ... take it to a bike shop ? if u have no idea what you u r doing, how do u expect to fix it urself???
  3. interesting first post.

    clean out fuel and check fuel filter - might need to replace it. do a general service too - carbies, spark plugs, oil change etc
  4. toss it in the bin or leave it out for hard rubbish:bolt:
  5. I would do a compression test. And not ride it till I knew there was still some piston and rings left in it where they should be.
