I am noticing a metallic sounding pinging/rattling coming from the lower rear when I change gears, accelerate or brake.
I have a 97 katana 600. The bike was sitting for 2 months due to repairs to fuel line. It is now running and the noise just started. I removed all fairings and replaced, they are all well secure. The chain seems like it has a lot of give. I can lift lower part of chain about 4 inches. Would that be the problem? Or possibly something else? Best way to fix problem?
