XR650l....help needed

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have a XR650l with 2800km on and it has a loud ticking noise when cold on the right side of the motor.

Right now it is at the dealer and he seems to think it's coming from the clutch/oil pump, my opinion is that the sound is by the head i.e. Tensioner etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Nope. Checked the valves and they're spot on.

Sounds like a rotational noise.

Any other ideas?

A fairly loud almost ratcheting whirring noise that sounds somewhat like a kickstarter partially extended while the engine is running is somehwat normal on some of these while the oil is cold.

 

Mine used to do it.

 

The sound I mean occurs at a 'rate' too high to be 1/2x or 1x or 2x each engine revolution.
