half way home from work yesterday my ped started misbehaving.
if i went from a stopped position to full throttle it would make a loud CLACK! noise and feel as if something were catching or dropping out in back. (at first i thought that something was getting stuck in the rear wheel/mags but i checked for that and there's nothing obstructing their motion).
as the ride progressed, the problem started occurring more and more often and i'd have to go easier and easier on the throttle until now, where i have to basically nudge it like a featherweight ever so gently in order to keep it from CLACK!-ing. i can't keep up with traffic at all and it's driving me crazy.
when i put the ped on its stand and rev up the engine from a stopped position, i don't notice the problem occuring. seems like it's only when the thing is actually moving or has weight on it.
oh, it's a 2008 sprint.
