XR making loud clicking noise-bad bearings??

  • My XR just started making a loud and 'feelable' clicking noise. Only does it going one way and not the other so a bit perplexed!? Could it be bad bearings?? Anyone???


  • @Adam-S Check the hub bolts for tightness. Check the tire pressure, too.

  • Check your tire to make sure you don't have something stuck in it. If you had a rock, tack, nail, etc. embedded in it, you might here and feel something when it came around. It could embed in a way where it affected one direction more than another.

    It could be that some of the axle bolts are loose. Check the 4 axle bolts on the outside of the rails. If they are all tight, take them off and check the silver ones inside the rails. If they are also tight, check every screw on the whole thing, because you don't want to go to the next step unless you have to. If they are all tight, then it might be your bearings are bad. If that is the case, then your motor is hitting the magnets attached to your wheel, which is not good. You would want to change your bearings right away.

    Audio would help diagnose. How many miles do you have on it?
