2001 klr250 still making noise after new cam, new chain and manual tensioner.

Really bad at start up hot or cold and when rolling off throttle. Sounds like some where in the top end mostly on exhaust side. Not valve clearance noise more like rattling. 20,000 miles runs great starts easy. Thanks

Funny you mention this, I have a KLX140, makes a loud "smacking" noise at a low rpm, then goes away mid rpm and come back at the top of the rpm range and when off throttle engine breaking. Sounds like it coming from the top end. Edited by joelpadgett
