2nd Ride Engine Issues/Noises

Post by Jcaldwell »



I have recently purchased a 1991 Gl1500 woth 10K miles and took it for the first ride last night. Tried to go out tonight and got a cling ting metal sound when turning the bike over (see video below). Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this sound?

It didn't like the URL I had posted. Should be able to see it now.

Looks like this forum doesn't like the new YT shorts. I can't say I blame it, not a big fan either.
Wow even with code tags it won't come through!

It's not YouTube, it's the site - I never wrote the code to handle YouTube shorts. :)

In any case, that's not a healthy noise. Almost sounds like valve-hitting-piston kind of noise.

When was the last time the timing belts were changed on this bike? A 1991 with only 10,000 miles has spent a LOT of its life just sitting around, and I would have 1000% changed the timing belts before starting it, unless I knew for sure they had just recently been done.

The belts where changed prior to the first ride. Took the covers back off and everything looks to be aligned correctly. Any other ideas? I am able to turn the engine over by hand and have now heard it on both sides. When it makes the noise is not consistent. Potentially a stuck lifter or similar?
