Hi All
Just a quick question.

Noticed that I am hearing a very noticeable 'tick, tick, tick', over & above the engine whilst riding!

Is this normal?

Bikes done approx 2300 miles & at 1st service I had the 'works' carried out ( valves checked etc ) so this was not a short oil & filter service!

Is the type of sound you would associate with loose tappets on an old ford escort is the only way I can describe it .. not noisy ... just there all the time but not on tick over!

Thanks
Mark

Only kidding - I am pretty useless wit anything like that- hopefully, Lloyd, Lawrence, Aussie RS, et all will pop along soon and give you a few pointers what the problem maybe

(Its not a lolly stick in the wheel spokes either is it?? - Did you check?? ;) )

let someone have a listen to it ASAP, the engines are very noisy but if your used to the sound your mechanic should pick a new rattle/ticking out. Or at least look into it for you.

rusty..;)

Like the quote at the bottom of my posts - I firmly believe that you must not take life too serious - cos you aint ever gonna get out of it alive !!!

For those of you delicate PC type people on here (are there any ??) then please accept my most sincerest, deepest condolancies for the loss of your sense of humour !

Maybe you can start a new thread asking for help to find it - I am sure there is more than me on here who would gladly spend our own valuable personal time and effort in finding your sense of humour !!:doh:

Happy Easter All !!!
