HELP, I need some input.. This past weekend I was out riding, and I got to a long stretch on the road where I was able to open the quad up.. In 5th gear with about half throttle left, this loud clanking started. I shifted down and every gear had the same clanking noise except 3rd.
I pulled over to the side, my friend stopped because they heard it as well. Shut it off and got off to make sure nothing was obviously wrong.. I put it in neutral and started it.. as I pushed the starter, it jetted backwards like it was stuck in reverse.. I had to drive it home in 3rd gear.
My chain is kind of old, and since our last offroad trip I washed the quad and it sat for a couple weeks. I oiled the chain, let the quad cool down and then attempted a test ride. It acted fine. On the way home, tried to open it up in 5th and it started all over again!
Now since this happened, I purchased a new chain, the sprocket is in good condition still, changed the oil and noticed some tiny metal flecks (thought that is from the clutch and is somewhat normal?) but it almost looked bronze colored..
Anyone have this problem? It's running fine, just getting tossed out of sequence it seems once I hit a certain speed.. Should the chain remedy this? Any input would be great!!
Thank you =]
