Thread: ticking noise?

  1. #1


    ticking noise?

    Brand new 08... Sounds like lifters or valves..It did not do it untill about 1/2 way home from the dealership.At least that when I started to notice it.it does not slow the bike down or mess with the power..It does speed up with the rpm of the motor. It does have the correct amount of oil..It only has 150 miles on it so I might be making a big deal out of nothing but thought I would ask..Thanks..

    It's normal. http://www.motorcycle-journal.com/fo...hlight=ticking

    You should be getting it checked after the break in anyways.

    if you are hearing the valves then your pipes need to be louder!

    I don't think I'd worry too much about it. I just got my bike a few weeks ago, thought the same thing as you but read through some of the threads here and consider it normal.
