Bogged Down/Chain Slap?

4 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Just got my first thumper, 06 wr450f. Anyways, Im pretty sure im right that this situation causes chain slap but i just wanted to see what everyone thinks.

I went out for my first cruise on the wr today, Didnt ride it to hard but a couple times around corners id go into the corner around 4th gear and slow down quite a bit and the bike would lug out of the corner, caused by me not changing gears, anyways. Once i rolled on the throttle it sounded like the chain slapped a couple times before the motor winds up a bit.

So my question, is chain slap normal a bit when you lug the motor down when your in a higher gear going slow...

Hope i explained it well
