    Mechanical concern

    I've noticed some sort of knocking when holding in my clutch coming down from 50mph and up but not at idle or slow speeds any ideas

    Maybe coming from the chain?

    How is your chain slack?

    Also; do you normally coast from such high speed with the clutch in?

      I was thinking the same, on both counts.

      How are your cush rubbers?
      Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          Just adjusted it a month ago on the tighter side

            With the external test it looks fine but I'm probably gonna pull it apart just in case

              Should I not coast like that I'm guessing no

                It's just an abnormal riding technique. Can't tell you the last time I was coasting at 50 clutch in. If I'm slowing from 50 I'm down shifting, on the brakes or engine braking.. nothing wrong with it. Just an unusual situation to be in.

                For all I know I have your same problem

                Could be Shain slop wacking the swing arm. That would be my guess..

                  Inspection of the drive dampers is best done assembled:

                    You made it tighter or looser?

                        The spec is too tight. If you're adjusting to the manual using the factory tool then adjust it to the loose line.

                          Alrighty I'll be readjusting in the morning along with checking the chain slider on the frame

                            Loosened the chain and just received my chain slider from hord hopefully I have no issues but I've also avoided holding in my clutch to long and haven't had much noise but if I have any issues with wearing out the slider quickly I'm gonna invest in the chain roller

                              That is what I was leaning towards as well. Make sure it's the one on the underside that attaches to the kickstand bracket, and not the one on the swingarm if you are inspecting and changing out. A lot of folks never realize there is one in there. I think you can still get the OEM replacement piece from Hord or whoever your go-to Honda supplier is. The part # is 52181-MN8-003 If that is what you got already.
