Postby gascho9311 » Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:08 am



HI , GOOD DAY, I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD HELP ME OUT WITH MY GOLDWING 2008. 5 DAYS AGO , I WAS ABOUT TO RIDE ON MY BIKE, WHEN I PUSHED THE START BUTTON, IT MADE A HORRIBLE NOISE, LIKE A BAD EXPLOSION OR DETONATION, FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, IT HAD NEVER DONE THAT TO ME BEFORE, THEN THE ENGINE SOUND LIKE IT DID NOT HAVE OIL AT ALL, A METAL SOUND , THEN THE ENGINE RAN , BUT WITH A KNOCKING SOUND ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, IS MOTOR RUINED ? THE KNOCKING SOUND WON¨T GO AWAY ¡ DI I IT BRAKE SOMETHING INSIDE , LIKE A VALVE ? I WILL APRICIATE YOUR HELP ¡

I would first do a compression test on the cylinders to first rule out any kind of serious valve damage. I'd also avoid riding it until you can figure out the cause of the noise.

THANKS A LOT FOR YOU ADVISE, I WILL DO THAT FIRST OF ALL . EVEN SOME USERS MANUALS REFER TO THIS KIND OF EVENTS, THEY CALL IT , ENGINE DETONATION ¡ DO NOT WHY IT HAPPENS BUT IT DOES. THIS IS PRACTICALLY A NEW BIKE AND WITH LOW MILLES ON IT. BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR CONCERN AND HELPPING ME OUT ¡
