I just rebuilt the top end on my bike, as the cam journals had galled. I had to readjust the valve clearance. YZ timed the bike while I was in there. My engine makes very little noise, the exhaust is loud. I run a White Bros. exhaust. Sounds to me like the valves may be out of adjustment. I was going to get rid of my bike also, but after this rebuild, I'm finally happy with the performance.
