    Streatched clutch bell.spring comes to mind.

    Recently anotger member had an odd "tocking" sound. Spend a good bit looking around for the cause, but as far as I know the source wasnt found. That stuff drives me nuts, but much inspection didnt turn up anything.

    Big back tires and second gear = heavy load on the engine.I think this is a bad move.

    Is it possible that you have a screw rattling around somewhere?

    I believe assassin is referring to me, i recently had a metal pinging noise. after playing around with it, tuning it, and taking it apart i believe it was my Lsn being to lean. Like i said i took everything apart and it all seemed to be fine. After adjusting and tuning the sound went away.
