So my 125 is back on the road and legal and it's quite a shock after riding my son's 200 for nearly 9 months. Anyhoo it's riding quite nice but I've noticed a noise when pushing it in neutral with the engine off. It's sort of a clunking noise coming from the engine region. The rear hub is done up tight and as far as I can tell the rear brake back plate screws are done up tight which is something I experienced once before. The gearbox is sweet and it happens when the Scooter is going both backwards and forwards. I don't say it's causing a problem, but I'd like to sort it before it becomes one. Any ideas chaps?
Lol, no new shock, it's cyclic as the wheels are going round. At first I wondered about the cush drive but then it occurred to me that if the engine is off and it's in neutral then the layshaft wouldn't be rotating, or have I got that wrong?
Stop the pigeon! Your showing your age now. Clunk, Dick Dastardly, Muttley and what was the other character called?

Hello. since reading this, I gave my scooter a push and I have a noise like a a gate with a rusty closing spring croaking noise. I've ridden nearly 3000 miles since the rebuild without once shouting Drat and Double drat.
I changed what I wrote earlier as I don't believe it's serious. Let us know if your wheel falls off though.
