newbie with issues
« on: March 08, 2018, 02:32:12 PM »

hi ppl my name is brent and I'm from vic
I just recently purchased a gt250r was pretty cheap but a half decent bike when I got it
it had a lot of weird noises at first
it had a lose chain that needed to be tightened so I tightened the chain now it has a
kind of rubbing sound to it it only makes the sound if I'm cruising along or slowing down
also the bike seems harder to push then other bikes I have had
it also if you are cruising along at any speed and you move the handle bars a lil it feels like it has a
wobble in the back wheel
I don't know what is the problem is but can anybody suggest/tell me what the problem is
and how I can fix it plz I like the bike and ride it a fair bit
can anybody help me

Sounds like it's too tight now. leave about 3/4" slack with the rear wheel off the ground. When it's back down it should be about right.

Could be a few things, but as said check that chain tension.

The guys seem like they are on the money .
If your chain is too tight , you risk collapsing the bearing which would probably cost more to repair than the bike is worth .
I always make sure the chain will almost touch the swing arm as a rough guide but the actual measurement is between 20-30mm slack .
