I hear a ticking coming from the engine itself. Im not sure what it is can someone tell me. Thanks. its a 04 wr450.

Its jetted for warm weather. Ive been riding it and its like 30 degrees outside. i dont know if it has anything to do with the way its jetted and because its cold out.

heres a video of it.

what oct gas are you using? low grade gas can cause a ping, just a thought
