I just finished the top end on my 04 crf450 and I went with SS valves,new piston,rings..... She started up on the second kick after reassembly and since then its been just one kick. This was my first 4 stroke rebuild as I was a 2 smoke guy since I was a kid so I was nervous about this top end. I put in a couple of mild 20 minute sessions today just to break it in but I noticed a slight ticking sound from the valve train. Its very slight and not really noticeable on the cam chain side but more noticeable on the exhaust side. When I set the decompresser I ended up at .0265. I thought that was close enough but maybe not. The ex valve is at .012 so you add+.014=.026 for Decompresser. Is the faint ticking normal for SS valves or did I not set the the decompresser correctly?
