Gen 1: Bike shuts off at 3k RPM

Weird stuff going on now that I've I completed my transmission rebuild. The motor just cuts right off when it gets to about 3k. This is in neutral as well as in gear. I'm stumped honestly. I don't even know where to start to look. None of this was happening before I rebuilt. It actually ran like a champ, minus the transmission of course.

Thoughts and suggestions on where to troubleshoot?

Yeah.. Same thing I said and everyone else that I showed it to. After a comb thru all the lines and hoses and it's still doing it then I'll throw in the white flag and to the shop it goes. I've never heard anything like it.

Sounds just like my rebuilt bike that was sitting for awhile, I didn't do anything to fix it other that add new oil....check it out:

Where is that sound coming from? If you try to approach the 3k rpm very slowly, does the noise come more slowly too or is it still sudden?

It almost sounds like something mechanical is loose.

Edit: Seems like problem is solved.

Did you have to replace yours? Didn't matter if I revved slow or fast it still did it around the same time.

I would check the starter clutch. Get down by the right side crank cover, and then rev the bike, and see if that is where the sound is coming from. Mike.
