Is this normal? 700 raptor...

Recommended Posts

Just bought a 2013 raptor 700 quad. It makes a lot of noise from the left side like a chain rattling around and so much heat comes off the right side it's hard to ride long distances. You could never ride in short pants it gets so hot. It runs great (other than noise). Very fast. I put about 100 miles on last weekend and didn't have any other problems but it's hard to believe it should sound like that and get so hot.

Left side is your cam chain, I highly recommend checking your valves and look at that chain. Positive it's motor sound? Is it completely stock?
Valves will do a lot of ticking if they are loosened up. If you need a service manual let me know.

Thanks for the response. I think it's stock. Is that something I can fix myself? I'm reasonably mechanical. That's exactly the sound. Like a chain slapping around. I don't have any kind of device manual for it.
