HI If your bike is chain drive, look at the chain tension, the chain could be hitting the gear box case. If you primary sprocket is worn the the chain could be jumping teeth If you have a shaft drive then inspect the universal joints and the differential oil level

SOURCE: noise in trans or in primary chain

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Will 2009 ninja 650r forks fit on a 2007 ninja 650r?


Hi, Vince after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.

6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.

17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Grinding noise from passenger side engine


The water pump bearings could be going out and they will make a grinding noise.The water pump doesn't always leak when the bearings are going out.

Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!


Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.
