650r-ticking noise

9 posts in this topic

I have a 2000 650r Motarded. After a hard top speed run the top end started ticking bad the next day. First I replaced the cam chain tensioner, still ticking so I checked valves, adj. an still ticking! Ticking is in the top end. Should I be looking at the decompression? Would this be more like a bent valve or cracked spring? Bike still has all the power of before an doesn't smoke, but tail of muffler has a little black soot around it. Thanks guys!

Welcome to Thumpertalk, smrich......

If it still runs good, no valves are bent and I dought you have a cracked spring...

From what you said, the valve lash is right..so it must be chain or ...:cheers: ...

Low oil level? -> worn rockers/cam :cheers: Worn rockers make some ticking noise.

Look also for brass in the oilfilter/screen....

Intake rocker arm really worn! Exhaust ok. Have to check spec on all parts, but if the intake rocker arm is worn am I looking at valve bent or springs cracked or shot, or camshaft out of spec? Maybe just the rocker arm is bad?
