i just picked up my new 05 600 friday and im breakin in in but i have a question. I hear what seems to be the valves ticking while im riding is this normal for break in or will i always hear them? i understand ill hear the motor but just dont want a problem down the road. i only have around 120 miles on it.

does it get quieter after time? is it the valves? as long as its not a problem and everyone else has the same noise thats fine, dont want to let the warranty run out before i realize somethings wrong.

Mine does it too. I think they all do. I was thinking it's either the cam chain tensioner, valves, or the header leaking a little.
