Rebuilt 93 kdx250 ticking sound

Post by Gstander50 »

Hey guys picked up this bike a few months ago that needed too and bottom end rebuilt. First bottom end I’ve done. Just got the bike back together and there is this ticking noise. It also Boggs under acceleration at low rpms, at high rpms it runs and sounds great. Any advice would be awesome. Here’s a link to a video of it

LOOSEN YOUR CHAIN :-)

With that said, that is the normal wonderful sound of a properly running KDX. Low end issue could be jetting, reeds, etc.

EDIT: I edited your post to add the video inside the post.

EDIT 2: That is the "KIPS rattle". Look around on this site.
Thank you for participating on kdxrider.net. :bravo:

Yup, sounds normal to me

Oh, and I agree, loosen that chain! That thing looks like it's just itching to break your output shaft through the case.

sounds just like mine.
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
