hey all, i have just completed a full rebuild on my 06 wr450, i have fitted new cams & springs and the have been cleared to the spec in manual, also a new cam chain has been fitted. my question is, once started for the first time the top end sounded rattly e.g. cam-valve noise. is this normal and should i expect it to settle down once the bike is broken in?
