Hey guys, hows everyone been? I know its been awhile since ive been in here. But in my defense ive been duin alot of riding this season. But i ran into some problem. My engine is starting to make a rattleing sound whenever i take off in gear doesnt make any sounds in neutral reving up, just when i take off. Not even sure where its coming from. Any ideas guys? Thank you and have a wonderful mornin

Firstly to rule out the most destructive rattle - What CCTs have you got: Manuals or OEM?

Next, what's the condition of your chain & sprockets?

First off, everything is stock on this bike except the r/r has fins, so im thinking its been changed not positive though, bike has just over 13000 miles
And as for chain and sprokets, not in the best of shapes, but they are on the list of upgrades.

C&S are consumable/service items - get looked at pronto as you risk if they fail damaging engine casings / output shaft, locking the back wheel, leaving a big skid mark in your pants etc...
