Hey Guys,
I'm getting a weird noise when I start my 1983 CM 250 -- the electric starter works normally, the bike starts, but then makes a noise that sounds like a party horn. I have no idea what it is. It's kind like Vroooom! Squeal! -- if onomatopoeia helps.

I'm also slipping into neutral occasionally, out of nowhere.

The bike is in perfect shape, only 2k miles. barely used for 27 years, and has been kept in a garage.

Any ideas??

Thanks!

Could be the starter motor, when it disingages? It might not be returning quickly enough. Not sure about the neutral problem could be misadjusted clutch, make sure you have a little play at the clutch lever, a couple of mm at least.

Regards
