had my dx for 2 years running topless etc.. with VH comp exhaust so used to all the noise's it makes but the last couple of rides , just after cold start up and ran it say 800 meters stopped at lights , it has a random knocking noise ?

this knock is not in time with revs but "random" once hot goes away , today did it and i could swear it was coming from the clutch basket ? but hard to tell with the VH comp right by it ?

as i say random once on warm up , on side stand can't get it to do it ?

anyone have this or know what it could be ?

ran it today hard no problems with clutch or motor at all !

(you just know when a "new noise" appears)

check your belt tension. had my swingarm pivolt bolt replaced by dealer...they did something wrong when they put it back together. got a clacking noise at all speeds but then went away, not constant. thought maybe it might be the tranz. removed all guards (front pulley also) sure enough there were belt marks & wear marks on the guards. ran it without the guards, so far no noise.
