Rattle!?!?! Empty Rattle!?!?!

Hi Guys and Girls,

I've just registered on the forum and was wondering if you could help me,
When i ride and accelerate hard, particularly from stationary and in 1st and 2nd gear i here quite a loud metallic rattle, any ideas what it could be? i was thinking maybe the valve clearances or camchain?
also would 98 R6 race levers fit a thundercat?

thanks
James

Hi & welcome james. Have you checked basic things like chain slack? is engine oil level ok does it need changing? Another thing to check is front sprocket nut can come loose. Give us a bit more info to go on & also post up a bit about you & the cat in new members hello section. Paul.
