Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

Picked the bike up this morning. It’s not running on one cylinder but they said there is a noise in the front cylinder. Rode fine on the way home, pulled strong and even lifted the front wheel in 2nd on a very spirited take off from a green light starting line[emoji23]. Going to have a play around a...

Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

It’s not the chain I checked that. Will see how it rides tomorrow when I pick it up but it certainly wasn’t running on 1 cylinder when I dropped it off.

Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

Ok so they have sorted the tensioner out it wasn’t tightened right?? Not sure what they mean by that but it’s sorted. They want another 3 hours investigation @ £78 per hour to see why it’s running on one cylinder. They said it’s rideable and I can pick it up and re book it in for another day as they...

Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

Ok so sent the bike in to Fowlers to see what it is and they are getting back to me tomorrow morning with a full diagnostics but they said one of the ccts is making a noise but more worryingly the bike is running on one cylinder?

Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

That’s for the input guys will have a look at the chain and sprocket when I’ve sort the lads out on site. I love being the boss, get the lads working then I can play with the toys. Brought the Disco 300tdi in the other day. Spent most of the day cleaning the intercooler, replacing the turbo hoses, f...

Re: Un- familiar noise...NOT CCTS....

The chain and sprocket were changed about 4K ago(before I owned the bike) I did have the tyres changed a couple of months ago which was not long before the noise started very slightly has got worse the last 3 weeks. Could it be that it wasn’t put back on at the right setting? Sent from my iPhone usi...
