1984 Honda Xr200r Bad Engine Noise

Recommended Posts

unless you have a very worn cylinder allowing lots of piston slap then either you have excessive cam/valve clearance or no oil going to the cam.

need a bit more info   Did it just start making the noise or slowly getting worse. You are probably going to have to pull the top off it at the very least. While it is running see if you can feel any vibration on the decompression cable where it hooks onto the engine

It's always ticked. All the rfvc engines seem to make noise. This one has slowly started getting louder. There is no vibration coming from the cable I've messed around with that already.
