Panic Rev to clicking noise after landing. CRF250R

Recommended Posts

Riding at my local track on my 05 CRF250R hit a table with a muddy face went to far forward hit the gas and as soon as my back tire hit the dirt, i rode away and my bike was making a ticking noise. im new to 4 strokes. ridden 2 smokers my whole life but i know its bad when your RPMs are cut down because of landing. I got off the track and shifted back to neutral. still making the clicking noise, i shut off the bike and let it cool down. now it has more compression than it should. i dont want to go tearing into the engine until i have some sort of clue what the problem is. if you have any ideas or questions please feel free to reply. i would greatly appreciate the help. thank you. 

the bike has about 15 hours on it after a full TOP, and BOTTOM end rebuild.

it sounds like the cam timing is off, need to check to see if all the marks still line up or not. Could have a timing chain tensioner that let go when you landed.
