Hi all,
I have a GTS125 iGet. It's a 2019, done 4200km, serviced and run in properly. It's recently started making a hellish rattle that I can't put my finger on. It seems to be worse at tick over, but the scoot is running fine- no loss of power, fluid levels are all fine. I did read that it might be the exhaust gasket, but that is on the opposite side.

A little bit of roller rattle at tickover is not unusual.

Could be transmission related, but check your rear brake caliper, maybe the pin has popped out and the brake pads are rattling. I have had that issue. The sound came from the transmission side but it was the pads clanking and you hear the rattle when riding under 20mph. Hopefully through process of elimination you will figure out the problem at hand.

Had a better look this evening, found some oil on top of the engine under the air intake. It sounds like a tractor, but still running fine. I will phone the workshop on Tuesday to see what they say. My geared Vespa two stroke is hopefully going to be MOTd tomorrow, so I will use that until I can get it down to the workshop. Thanks for the advice though, I am starting to understand the auto a bit better now after having years of 2 strokes
