Hey guys i just bought my 2004 gsxr, got 3000kms on the clock. I notice when im going 70km up theres a constant ticking noise from the engine when the throttle is steady like at 4000rpm. if you give it a hit u cant hear it, but steady throttle and 110 its just constant. It sounds like the piston is tapping on the barrowl. its had the 1000km service, and i bought it off a guy, clean and brand new. Is that common in the gixxers? im filling up bp ultimate hi octane fuel. Does that make a diff?
