XR250 noise when warm

Recommended Posts

I have an 01 XR250 that I bought used last year for my nephew to ride. It's completely stock. When I first bought it, the engine would get louder as it warmed up. I took it to the local Honda dealer and they found the valve guide moving in the head once it was warm. Anyway, the noise went away after the head was replaced. Then today I went riding with my nephew and we swapped bikes for a little while. It seemed to me that the 250 was a little bit louder than it should be. It sounded like a valve ticking. Maybe it supposed to be, but it is definitely louder than my XR400. Then when we got home I took it for a spin and it seemed fine again. Anybody else have a noise like this? It only happens when warm.
