Hi All

Has anyone else noticed a slight knocking noise when closing the throttle, seems to be coming from the drive chain or drive sprocket area,, like gear backlash... my chain is adjusted ok ... ? :confused:

Doubt cush drive rubbers are knackered yet, although it sounds that it could be except the knock is coming from the drive sprocket/ gearbox area... It's in for it's dyno and remap next Tuesday, I'll see if it's still happening after that as I have a suspicion it could be to do with the fueling as the engine seems to nearly stop dead when I close the throttle... :confused:

Yep my suspicion was right .. when I close the throttle the ECU turns the fuel off, that nigh on turns the engine off so the chain is clonking on the sprockets under the engine braking ... :confused: .... I think...!!!

What sort of chain grease are you using? I've noticed some run more noisy than others depending on their make up. The dry lube options are especially noisy compared to a good old gloopy grease.

Try using a thick oil on the chain to rule that out.

I doubt cutting the fuel off would create that noise otherwise we would all suffer with it
