Greating's from the Grimsby in the UK
Hi I am new to the forum
One thing I would like to know,
I have just bought a 1984 GL 1200 Aspencade with 110 k on the clock it as a clattering noise coming from the engine on throttle down at low revs, the last owner said this only happens when the engine is cold and disappears when hot could this be due to the carburettors being out of balance or the clutch or something other

I mean when I am revving the engine at the lower rev range the clattering noise appears only on throttle down, also the tic over is very erratic

Just for your own peace of mind you should temporarily install an oil pressure gauge on your engine so you can record oil pressures at various rpm's and temperature. If the oil pressure is too low this will cause the clattering noise. The noise could also be the primary chain rattling and this is made much worse if the carbs are not in synch.
