    Identify this noise

    Noise suddenly appeared.



    Checked and adjusted valves, checked cam chain, and auto adjuster seems to be fine.

    Fresh oil and filter.

    Cant seem to identify exact location of the noise. However may be more pronounce of cam chain side of engine.

    24000 miles on a 2009, owned since new.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    If I had to guess, I'd say you need to re-check your valve clearances.

    Year of bike and miles? Like RBM said recheck your clearances if it is your 600 mi check I would have the dealer do it to keep the warranty good.

    I did three times. Seems as perfect as possible.

    Ran engine with valve covers off and sound does not appear to be near head. Also used a long screw driver to listen with against my ear and I cannot pin point it.

    I see your just across the dingmans bridge from where I am.

    Know of any bike mechanics who I can bring it too?

    I don'k know any mechanics, I do all of my own repairs. Are you sure you have the timing at top dead center? I always confirm by removing the plug.

    You have to do it cold and I pull the spark plug out and put a plastic straw in the hole and watch it go up and down.

    Tighten the valve adjustments down just long enough to see if the noise quits. Loosen them up a lot until they begin to clatter and see if it is the same noise or a different noise. That way you can find out if it is a valve adj. problem or eliminate that so you can look elsewhere.

    When you solve it I would like to know what you found.
