i have a knock somewhere in my bike. iI can hear it as well as feel it in the pegs and handlebars. it occurs at idle after starting the bike. it goes away after some riding, but comes back when i stop and restart the engine (even when warm). i just changed the spark plugs and coolant today, and it seems to have gotten louder (and feels harder). any ideas?

if you're feeling a knock at the pegs it could be the drive chain. check for tight spots... clean and lube etc.. see if it makes a difference. i know it's obvious, but hey

i made a discovery this week...it's not in the engine, but in the clutch. i realized that the reason i only noticed it at idle is b/c it only happens in neutral w/ the clutch out. a buddy suggested disassembling the clutch and visually inspect the innards.
