  1. Hi guys, Just want to update you with the current status. I put everything together replacing: - clutch basket guide - clutch basket bearing - pressure plate bearing - oil pump sprocket chain - friction plates - clutch cover gasket The noise is gone! The annoying metal knocking is completely gone. The only thing I can hear is noisy cam chains (tensioner already replaced) but this is something for another thread ;) Thank you for your help!

  2. Thanks a lot for a descriptive answer! Much appreciated! I’m putting everything together now. I have a quick question regarding the pressure plate position. There are marking on the pressure plate but I can’t find anything to align it with not I can find anything about it in the manual. Is the position of the pressure plate important?

  3. I would appreciate your help guys... I’ve replaced the bearing and the tube and the basket is still wobbling. The only thing that comes to my mind is the spacer or the bent main shaft [emoji3064]... anyone has any suggestions? Best, Kochan Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  4. Is there any space between the bearings and the spacer? It would be easier if you would post some pictures on how the bearings look like on both sides of the wheel. Cheers, Kochan Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  5. Anybody here that could look at the videos and say what could be wrong? 🙂 1.mov - https://www.dropbox.com/s/7a9f8q65giu080w/1.mov?dl=0 3.mov - https://www.dropbox.com/s/7a9f8q65giu080w/1.mov?dl=0 12.mov - https://www.dropbox.com/s/ees6rncp3x4hwsl/12.mov?dl=0 Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for your help buddy! Regarding the outer basket wobble, I hope it’s not the Main Shaft... I think I’ll start with replacing the bearings and the clutch guide. I hope it’ll solve the problem. Maybe somebody else have other ideas/opinions? Best, Kochan Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  7. Hi, so... answering your questions 🙂 Is your Oil level correct and of the correct viscosity? - yes Does the bike ride ok when shifting gears? - shifting is bit hard but it works, the clutch seems to Is your warm idle speed set to 1200rpm? - yes, approximately Does is go away with a warm engine and higher RPM's? - Hard to say with accessory exhaust 😉 But it goes away and comes back randomly. It's pretty 'hard', metal knocking so based on suggestion from a mate on Polish VFR forum I decided to inspect the clutch... I took it apart yesterday and this is how it looks like: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jn6y3wbe96lag30/AADd1--llCsE5IMBnuGuWOQYa?dl=0 Can you spot any issues? 🙂 This is what I've noticed: - 1.mov & 4.mov - the sprocket wobbles when I spin the clutch inner - 3.mov & 8.mov - the oil pump chain is veeery loose - 12.mov - the basket wear marks - A.jpg - the springs free length too short according to manual Best, Grzegorz
  8. Thanks Grum, I’ll check all things you’ve pointed out as soon as I’ll put my bike together ;) I did not change the oil yet (since last Autumn) since I was not sure if I’ll have o drain the oil to check the clutch or replace timing chains.... I’ll do it and go for the test ride. Thanks for your help, Much appreciated! Best, Kochan Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  9. Well, actually it’s still noisy :( This is how it sounds now with the clutch lever being pulled (no noise) and released (knocking). http:// Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk

  11. Thanks for the reply. I’ve replaced the CCTs and now it sounds like this: http:// Is this ticking sound normal? Or it’s the timing chain being loose? Or maybe I’m just paranoid? ;) Best, Kochan Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
  12. Hi all! I’ve found a few threads with similar title but I get an impression that the noise in my case is bit different. Anyone have an idea what could be the problem? Thanks a lot! Kochan Patient: VFR 800 VTEC ‘09, 60kkm Wysłane z iPhone za pomocą Tapatalk
