after i got my bike i noticed a ticking coming from the bike. i thought i was just hypochondriac since it was something new but i had it looked at anyway. The guy i brang my bike to said it was normal. I dont think he heard the noise i was talking about since it seems to get louder. i only hear it at low rpms till about 5-6k then i dont. But thats not the problem, while going to work the other day it seemed to be getting louder and making a different noise and also the bike seemed hesitant when giving gas, then all of a sudden it sounded like my chain popped. i grabbed the clutch instantly and coasted to the next road. i got off and ilistened. Its hard to explain how it sounded because i turned it off right after to avoid any further damage. But when i reved it it seemed like it was shuttering and then would rev up some.. ANY HELP is appreciated before i bring it in.

Well, the sound would have only been an issue with the CCT possibly, but from what you just explained, sounds like your cam chain either broke or jumped timing and the engine probably committed suicide.

If you're handy, you can start tearing into the motor and find out what is wrong, if not, have a trained tech inspect the bike and fix the damage.

I wouldn't go as far as saying you're fucked, but I'd go as far as to say expect a pricey repair bill.

Depending on what broke, a new engine will probably be cheaper. Might be worth it to just have it checked out before going which ever route.

You may be lucky and get away with a couple of damaged timing gears, chain and cct or you may be unlucky and find that the valves have been bent along with everything else in which case start looking for a new motor.

You may also be able to get the other bloke you took it to to pay given that he said all was normal, you just need to find a couple of other mechanics to say that he got it wrong...

Is there a way i can look to see if the CCT broke before i bring it in.? or do i have to take the whole engine apart to figure all this out.?

Also what engines fit the 03? is it just the 03? or 03-06 are basically the same?

Only way is to start pulling the engine apart and finding out all of the damaged bits. You should go to another mechanic and not the same one who said your bike souded normal.
03-04 will be cheaper, though 05-06 fit, but you need things like the 05-06 wire loom, etc.

Could It just be the motor? My 04 is pretty loud. That was one thing that I always liked about that I could hear the motor over the exhaust. Hope ur not fvcked. Good luck.

Sounds like what the OP described are not normal engine noises.

Ok we figured out what it was. It was none of what was described. when i brought it in they found that one of the cylinders was not firing. after they took it apart they found that the spark plug had broke somehow. none of the valves were scratched and they got all the pieces out. and put in all new plugs.

If you don't know exactly what your doing arrange for someone who does to check it out BEFORE you hand your dollars over, especially considering the potential harm that could result if something were to go wrong, like a chain snapping for example...

Its cheap insurance...

my big mistake.

I thought the guy i brought knew a lot. We were friends for about 4 years, and rode bmx together. He knew "everything" about bmx like i did, so i assumed he learned a whole lot about motrocycles as well.

Like i said in a different thread, he is all about looking cool, going fast, and doing wheelies.



Next time i buy looking to buy a used bike. I am going to leave my car at the guys place, take the bike home and tear it down. With the owner's premission of course. If he dosen't want me looking at the bikes insides, it probably wasn't cared for too much.

There is no way in the world I would let someone take my bike and tear it down, and I do look after it... Doesn't matter if you left me with a $100k car, if you stuffed my bike up you could still come around and take your car back and leave me with nothing...

At the same time, I have no issue with meeting a buyer at local a mechanics workshop and letting the mechanic look it over...
