Crap...

I went outside to wash my bike today and get all the nasty salt and sand from the roads off of it. Well when I finished and took it for a quick "drying."
Rolling it back to put it in the garage I heard a clicking noise. It seems like its coming from my clutch but I cant be sure. It is only in neutral when I am pushing it. I cant hear it when I am riding. Can anyone tell me what my problem is?

While I was under the bike I also found this... its the bracket under my bike that holds the exhaust and its broken clean in half. How big of a deal is this...

A lot of the 9ers have the broken exhaust mount. Probably more than know because they don't look.

As far as the clicking it's probably the chain/front sprocket. Are you keeping it lubed and the chain adjusted?

That weld has been a long time problem with 919's.

CB900F2 has a nice fix.

weld is cheap to get done. Your supposed to lube after riding. do you have a rearstand to put it on and turn the rear wheel?

FYI: people have welded it only to find it cracked again. It's your decision.

The bracket CB900F2 made was added to the Helpful Topics.
