Hi all
just got myself a bargain 2007 blackbird at 70k miles and I love it !

just got fresh pilot road 4's fitted and fresh mot, the only issue I have left is a knock from the water pump/ front sprocket cover the same as this clip

anyone heard these sounds before on this bike? it only does it when the bike is hot and thermostat opened etc
thanks all !
Any news on this??
