Clanking noise while running
Hi, I know it's hard to do any diagnosis through a text message, but I have a question...my always reliable Shadow 750 started making a clanking sound down low, between my feet, when I was pulled out in 1st gear. I thought it might be clutch, or slipping, but then is started happening while cruising.
My question is, I'm new to working on bikes and while it sounds like Tranny, is it reasonable to assume that if I take it apart, I'll be able to see what the problem is? Like a worn or bent part, etc? I obviously don't want to spend $2k on a shop...
Thanks for any ideas...
