So I took this bike out on a test ride and it died after making some rattly/clunking noises from the front cylinder. Got it for a bargain price now though.

Managed to get it restarted now and runs sweet but only on the rear cylinder. Any ideas what it could be ? Anybody else had similar issues ? Changing spark plugs this weekend but have a feeling all is ok as they all look brand new. Thanks

noise could be coming from the cam timing chain rubbing against the spark plug tube on the front cylinder, those front and rear spark plug tubes can be removed with 2 metric hex nuts jammed on a short bolt, insert the hex head of the bolt into the tube and back the tubes out and check for cam chain wear or a hole if the chain has made a hole if so then you will need to adjust your cam chain tensioners to push the chain tighter away from the tubes, just saying that noise could be from the chain i dunno
