<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">We pulled the whole motor part and everything was cool. It is pretty loud like th ticking sound you get when you don't have oil in the dam thing! Just louder. The ticking never goes away either it's in all gears at idle and whenever. The only time you don't hear it is in the morning but that's it. Then it slowly appears.Originally posted by Ratman69:
How loud is the ticking? Where on the engine is it coming from?
So you pulled the whole motor apart, and checked the rods, pistons and stuff? Or did you just pull the head? Did you pull the oil pan to see if there is any metal or anything down there?

i think the ape cct is too tight but i could be wrong. still the niose level sucks TICK TICK TICK.....AHHHHHHHHH!!!!
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">If it is clacking then there is something wrong... It should not make any noise like that... It might work but that doesnt meen it is right... Look at RatMans bike.. I could have said, yea there are a lot of people that say they clack on some of the 98 bikes... But had I let him go with it who knows what would have happend... He had a spun rod bearing...Originally posted by Drizzt:
Mine has done the same ever since it had a manual tensioner put in 14000km's ago, and i get it adjusted every 4000-6000km's. i thought about pulling it down and possibly replacing the guides and checking the camchain, but it aint broken so dont fix itbut the bike still runs like a train with 40000km's on it..

I would have to hear the tick to get a idea of what the tick is. I was wrong on RatMans... so I am not always right...John
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yeah, I'll be there with a big group of people from Bakersfield. A lot of other people from this board will be going as well.Originally posted by 96GIXXSHEEZY7FEEZY:
Are any of you guys gonna check out Laguna Seca this year????
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Well it does sound like a rod that would be making it then... I know you dont want to hear that.. but that could be the case.. If you want to find out if it is a rod you can pull the block on the motor (in the bike) and then you can rock each rod... You will know right a way...Originally posted by 96GIXXSHEEZY7FEEZY:
Ok guys.....Last night i was messing with my bike again and I found where the ticking really is coming from. With my stethescope that I should have used a long time ago I found the darn bugger. It is actually at the bottom part of my engine on the right side where 3 and 4 is. It is really bad there. I can hear it on the left side as well but not as bad I think it is just the right side sounding off through 1 and 2. That's how loud it is. My neighbor came out and was listening to the ticking and said that it sounded like a bearing was loose or it could be a damaged rod. Shit.............how much is this shit gonna coast me. If it ain't one thing it's another........what should I do. Can it be fixxed or should I just get another motor.
