South Australia / Re: Peter Steven's Adelaide don't service Spyder's in the City

Thanks all for your input and the issue appears to be gearbox related :unsures: As I'm all thumbs when it comes to anything 'under the hood' I'm having to leave it to the experts. Will have it checked out next week when hopefully I'll have a verdict and resolution so I can get back on 3.

so before PS tightened the belt,it only rattled on decel
now it rattles all the time :pullinghair:

sounds like the gearbox output shaft bearing,or a loose drive pulley,given that the noise moved after belt adjusted :boo:
not likely tho,with your k's :ok:

easy to check yourself...unload the belt(drop the rear shock lower mounting bolt)and check the front pulley and bearing :clever:

You can also check the Sway bar Link as the OEM "plastic" one tend to break and/or come lose.

mmm thats a worry dave.have you checked the really simple things like muffler baffle rattles,heat shield rattles,loose ex front pipe clamps springs.have a look at the front pulley bolt.is it only cold or hot.do you have to ride it or can you just rev it and get the noise,is it in one gear more than the others,is road shock related ie bumps.

Well you're right Stu. PS said it was fixed but as I rode out it just rattled all the way. Not the belt at all. Will go somewhere else for help I think.

what a drama dave.im not sure i see how a rubber belt loose can make a tin can rattle noise.loose wheel maybe if the bearings were wobbling.but i live and learn every day.it wasnt the loose front pulley thing the f3 get.

Hey Stu, my son followed me to Wingfield on the Tuesday and I took a leave day as I thought it would be a fairly quick fix.....I was hoping anyway. Had breakfast back in the city, then as I'd not heard anything we went home. Called em up at 3 (7hrs later) and they had not taken it for a test ride, only started it and could not hear what I reported being a 'tin can rattle' when off the throttle. They were insistent they wanted to try it when it was cold then next morning, so nothing was done all day. I called them at 10 since they start at 8 and figured 2 hours was long enough and again they have not taken it out. Yeah I was getting annoyed by this time so again I told them to take it out for a ride. Nothing for 2 hrs so I called them again and hooray they finally took it out and said they heard the same noise, so it took 12 hrs to get to this point. Anyway they called me back within 30 mins to confirm the belt was loose and the rear wheel had not been tensioned and this had caused the belt to 'flap' when not under power. I'm guessing this was when the tyre was changed earlier this year. By this stage it was to late to arrange time and a ride to collect so I'll be doing this tomorrow. Will see how many hours labour they try to charge for this.

All in all I am glad it was nothing major and in the end a quick fix.

SPYDER MUSTER 2020 / Re: Accommodation for Spyder Muster 2020

we would love to join everyone but we are having to wait for our holidays for 2020 to come up so we can't do much until then.  But we are looking into trailering the spyder both ways and use the roof top tent to sleep in.  So finger crossed we can do this one next as a anniversary trip  :bananajam: :cheer:

SPYDER MUSTER 2020 / Re: Accommodation for Spyder Muster 2020
« Last post by noboot on 16 April, 2019, 02:21:40 PM »
There are a few of us that have booked already as well from NSW & Tassie.
We looked at trucking 20 Spyders over but the cost was so far out of the ball park at $76,000  return that is $3,800 per Spyder. 

I'm not up to riding that far so I intend putting my Spyder on a trailer and towing it over.
It would be nice to meet up with others heading the same way and doing it by convoy.

Cheers,   noboot  (Ron)
