View Full Version : Rattling from exhaust area
08-16-2005, 06:43 PM
Hey all, has anyone got any idea why i am getting a rattling noise from around the exhaust area at low speeds? It's not the heat shield, i checked that. It only seems to happen between 20-55 km/h? It's almost like a scraping/brushing noise. It seems to dissapear after i reach 60 km/h. Could it be my brakes? BTW, i ride a AA200.

I get the same thing. It's especially bad when starting from a stop after having ridden for an hour or so - sounds like something metal is dragging on the road. I am also planning to get it checked out, and will post anything I find out. Any advice is appreciated.

I had it checked out at the aprilia dealer and its no biggy! The rear brakes have worn and one of pads has worn at an angle causing it to brush and make noise. I was going to get it shimmed but i have a service coming up in a few thousand, so i'll just get them change then.
