Slight Tick noise while riding under load in higher gears
Posted November 16, 2008 - 02:06 AM
Snorkel removed, Exhaust insert removed and the Grey wire is cut.
I notice when doing 40mph in top gear and get on the throttle, theres a slick tick noise. It comes and goes every now and then. If i drop a gear its fine. Its almost like a pinging noise.
I will hear the noise in 4th gear too if im in sand.
Motor specs, Oil change every 300miles, Running Fully Synthetic. Engine has done 1800miles with no valve checking that I am aware of. I bought it at 400miles.
Bike starts and runs without any hesitation. Any time, all the time.

We run 95 Unleaded. Ive just washed the airfilter, Ill check it out soon..
Could it be that the bike is too lean?
