    They are generally noisey engines. If I hadn’t rode mine for a while, it would always surprise me the racket it made. My late model Tnt 899 is much the same, although a bit quieter since the self destructing z25 was changed!

    Also, they do run hot. The fans and the under seat rad may look cool, but they do a piss poor job of keeping things cool. I was always told ‘as long as there’s no coolant coming out it’s ok’. I believe tune ecu let’s you programme the fans to come on earlier and there’s a guy on Facebook who’s selling uprated water pumps......

    Drain the oil, look for swarf in the oil, also you may have a bit of steel plate stuck to the magnetic plug.
    The plate that holds the cush springs have a nasty habit of breaking out and that spring is then loose to rattle in the basket seats.
    How many miles has the bike done, have you ever had a replacement clutch basket.Tornado tre noise-dscf0957.jpg

    The plate breaks on the outer edge of the spring , and the strip of metal drops to the sump plug.

    I've had it since last october it had 3500 miles on it now has 4250 on it not gone into much yet maintenance wise as I want to ride it more . Had a winter hack for work as it sits outside for upto 10hrs a day or more so only been ridden more recently. As far as I'm aware its had minimal work done but someone has been at it. I've had to change fans and someone in past has been heavy handed with it as plastics are perfect .this noise has appeared after it being hot I'm guessing

    The temperature gauge is not accurate, that is why there are no numbers on it, if it did not boil , it was not really hot , it just thought it was .
    They are a race bike design and need air flow through the radiator, plus the water pump is most efficient at higher rather than low revs in traffic.
    Open roads and long sweeping bends are what they like.

    Hi, I would recommend removing the alternator and checking the bolt on the end of the Z25 shaft is tight. If it has come loose you will get a noise that vanishes when the clutch lever is pulled in. The bolt should have a Bellville washer on it but can still come loose through heat cycling if not torqued correctly and plenty of the correct threadlock applied. Found this out when I did my Z25 gear upgrade.

    Second what the Don just said, sounds unlikely that's it had the beville washer mod. Not difficult if handy with the spanners but if unsure maybe get Bennetts to go over it and check for the various mods.
    Pre Benelli, ZR50SL, RS100, BMW R50/5, RD400, CB350K4, GPZ550, CB900, 750 KATANA, GSXR750, FIREBLADE, TL1000S, 955i Daytona, GSXR 1100L, GSXR1000K6.....

    Now; 2003 900 Tornado, 2008 900 Tornado, 2009 CR 1130, 2010 1130 Tornado...and the diesels...Ducati 1199s Panigale for when four italians are not enough... a 750 srad ....when 5 italians are too many.......and now an '81 Katana......to remind me how good modern bikes are...
