Hi all,

I recently purchased my first monster 1000Sie (2004) and on two occasions on failed starts I hear a single Loud knock. Wondering could this be the starter itself?
It only seems to happen if the bike fails to start. Then I add more choke and go again and the bike drives fine afterwards. It’s quiet a loud sound.

Any help greatly appreciated

Intermittent noises are the worst to diagnose because you can’t repeat them to trace the noise. Sometimes you just have to wait for it to get bad enough to trace it down. Your other option is to replace the starter.

Ask it questions and see if it knocks in response. It could be possessed. You may need an exorcism. 😱
