Ticking in the motor after HotCam installation

Recommended Posts

I installed a HotCam in my 450 the other day. I gave the 30min break in that was recommended. The powergains were very noticable.

After a couple hours of pretty easy riding I noticed a "ticking" sound coming from the motor. I did not notice any problems with the performance of the bike. I couldn't be happier.

I am going to check the valves in the morning.

any other ideas or common problems others have had?

did you forget to tighten the cam sprocket bolts? it happens and as they back out, they rub the inside of the engine cover

Mine also makes the ticking sound after the cam install. Valves have been checked twice for maintenace, and are still within specs. It's probably ramp profile or the aftermarket cam.

i called hot cam when mine did it too.... its normal from the more aggressive lobes... but just to make sure, triple check all your gaps and bolts.
