went for a short ride today on my 07 450f and couple times while idling it was making a tapping sound exactly like a valve tapping.It was warmed up and has plenty of oil,it didn't sound like anything about to blow just a ticking sound.It did go away after awhile and it was the first time the bike has been running in a couple weeks.Any ideas what would be causing this?Only think I can't come up with is maybe the cam chain.The bike ran fine,its due for an oil change so hopefully I won't find junk in the filter.
