G'day

G'day just introducing myself have recently purchased a 650 classic, seems to make a clunking noise when in gear going slow or when in neutral rolling slow. Any ideas from any one what that might be? Anyhow glad to have found this site and look forward to many discussions and tips being passed back and forth from myself and other users.
Regards,
Randy

Welcome Randy!

Is it a high or low pitched noise? To make sure I understand correctly, this clunk is not when shifting gears, but while moving/rolling? Unrelated to throttle input or speed? Definitely coming from the engine?


Post up some pics of that fine ride, it may help us pinpoint the problem

Hello Randy and welcome to the forum. As you have already seen this is a great forum with lots of folks ready to help. Let me warn you though once Mieschi figures out what the clunking sound is he still will not tell you until you post a picture of that sweet looking bike of yours (;-{)>

Welcome aboard Randy1. I'm sure you'll get the help you need just as I did. You might get some ideas by searching the V-Star forum as well. Hope to see photos of your bike soon.

Hi Mieschi ,
The Clunk is a low noise, it is only apparent at slow speed and is there whether the bike is in gear or not. I think it is coming from the direct drive and sound like it is from the rear wheel area. It would be great if you have an idea as I am perplexed at the moment. It does appear to be only at slow speed under 10klm's but maybe I just dont hear it when I am cruising.
Kind Regards,
Randy

Hi it is a rhythmic clunk and is there whether in gear or not. I suspect it is the direct drive near the rear wheel somewhere
