Help please! Strange noise between certain RPMs
I have a 93 ZX 6.
When I hit between 5,000 and 6,000 rpm I get a "rasping, fluttering "sound. It stops once I exceed 6,000. The sound is kind of like when an old radiator warms up....
Just wondering, anyone else have this issue and do you think it's something that I can fix?
timing chain, worn camshaft journals,

Freekin hard to narrow down cause it only seemed to happen when riding.
i have the same thing around 6-7.5k but ithink its cuz my baffes are punched out and that sound resonates at that frequency...not completely sure though
When it's happening try grabbing your windscreen -- my zx-11 (97) vibrates at about the same RPM and that is definitely part of it. sometimes it makes a rasp at lower RPM's but mostly not. if that's the case, I dunno what to tell you heh cuz I was just relieved it wasn't mechanical. (at least, THAT noise..)
