weird noise

i have a kinetic tfr 2001

when i go above 20 mph a strange wacking noise occurs. if i release the throttle quickly and then reenguage it it will usually stop. sometimes i have to do that 2 or 3 times before it stops. i am suspecting that it might be the drive belt slapping something. anyone know what this might be?


weird noise

See if it makes the same noise under hard acceleration.

(An oxymoron regarding a Kinetic, I know!)

If it does not, there is a good chance that the noise is from the centrifugal clutch. You should be able to check the drive belt tension if you take off the side cover.
