So no at least for my new bike the sprag issue was still there. I hope i dont see this again. Warranty fix very quick but kinda not the point.
i cant stand it..Hi!
I changed the sprag on about 10000km and now, I have to change it again. 22000km....
I had a issue with some weird and scary noises in the engine, and I think that's the sprag.
Like Caloots say, sounded like rocks in the engine, and it stopped. When turned it over 20min later it sounded ok.
Yesterday, when turning the engine after a short ride, there was a terrible noise. After a few on/off with the key, it was ok and fired up with no noise. Getting it changed on Thursday.
I always stop it with the kill switch never the key ..
Many reasons, sometimes you need the bike turned off but the lights still going for a short time, on some bikes the fans will keep going for a short while and then you can turn the ignition off, the bike doesn't have to go through the diagnostic check when you turn it back on, all of this under the "shot while" context though.I've never understood turning it off with the killswitch because you still have to turn it off at the key to get the key out.
If the sound is a loud clack (metal on metal) then its your sprag. Better get it serviced before you're left stranded.My dragster rr has a serious starting problem, I thought it was tow truck time yesterday morning when I got to sacramento for a table tennis tournament, stopped at jack in the box..10 mins later..it does not want to fire up..finally starts..no more issues the next 3 times that day..this morning, it was very hard to start 2 of 4 times. I'm afraid to shut it off..pretty shure it's the sprag, the starter is beginning to make a "clunking" sounds, the battery seems to be solid..time to go to Livermore for warranty..problem is, it's my only transportation...
