  • Ninja ZX6r 636 2006 - Knocking Sound

    As of today, my bike has started making a knocking sound which seems to only occur at low speed when I apply the throttle or when I take off from a standstill. I've heard it n 1st, 2nd and 3rd so far.

    In my opinion the sound is from the gearbox. I have limited bike gearbox knowledge so was wondering if this might be a sign of clutch wear or something else. Thought I would ask PSB before I take it into the shop.

    ticking or knocking?

    does it do it in time with rpm or is it just a knock now and then? Need a bit more info on when it occurs.

      I'm going to ride over to the other office soon, will take a bit more notice then.

      Off the top of my head, it is a knocking sounds and does appear to be in time with RPM. But over a certain RPM, it is either drowned out in other engine noise or stops completely.

            Kwackas make all sorts of weird whistling and ticking sounds. If from lower right side then maybe loose chain. If a 'soft' ticking sound, maybe the auto-cam-tensioner-thingy hasn't clicked over yet?

                    If you're getting a ticking/clicking sound from the right side of the bike just under the fuel tank, then it could be your auto cam chain tensioner. Just replace it with an APE manual cct.
