    no replacements or anything..riding up a hill the other day and after that i dont accelerate as fast and its not the clutch. the engine has 0 idle no matter what i do with the idle screw and the engine sounds like it has rocks in it. (i can hear the raw engine with the sbp expansion chamber) ive tried riding slower, adding more oil, and replaced the spark plug and cap. i have 250 kms on it. what to do?

    start with engine mounts & remove head & check piston for dings

    inside looks good i noticed some oil around the head gasket so maybe my bolts werent tight enough? is it possible its running too dry? its all like graphite in there

    probably OK once you get head torqued properly - don't forget to check for a need for extra washers if you're using the acorn nuts - several discussions here about that

    Sounds to me like the ol' "rattle of death" chinagirls make when their piston pin goes bad.

    Hopefully I'm wrong, tho.
