Re: Strange engine noise
Like I said,yes it sounds normal. If you are concerned it's not normal,please by all means,pull the valve cover and check all the lash clearances. It's your bike.
If you don't trust the opinions of others then you need to do what you feel is best for you're bike.
Whats the overall condition of the bike?
Did you buy it new and have serviced it according to suggested intervals in the service manual?
When was the last time the valves where inspected? Where the clearances written down for each valve?
Answer these questions to yourself and decide if the bike needs mechanical attention. If it does,then do it no matter what people on the forum say.
Again,its your bike.
