2005 Bullet 500 with about 1000 miles on it. Oil was changed at 800 miles and looks full and clean. Engine made some scraping noise occasionally or maybe was pinging could not identify where noise was coming from. The bike stalled and now the motor is rapping. Any suggestions on what to look for?Thanks
Turns out the exhaust tappet retaining nut had backed off and there was about 1/2" of play in the pushrod. What a sound! I thought for sure we had burned the piston but came here for some suggestions. Thanks everyone. It seems to be running great now but still need to test ride it.Byker1 & Lady Enfield
