Knowcking noise in rear end when starting from a start
Love my 08 KLR, 11,000 miles.
Lately when I let the clutch out and give it gas, I hear a distinctive and disturbing noise from the rear area of the bike. I've tightened the chain, and nothing is hitting anything, that I can see. The sound almost could be coming from inside the engine, when accelerating under stress on the drive train. A rattly sound, much as you would expect IF the chain WERE hitting something. My hope is that it is not inside the clutch area of the engine. Any Thoughts?
