Valve tapping/Clicking..?

Recommended Posts

I lowered My idle a little bit today and I noticed what I think is clicking/tapping sound, I assume it is the valves. I did some fooling around with hot rods as a kid but otherwise have no idea how to adjust the valves on my bike. I have an SSR 125 SBR with a zongshen motor. Does anyone have any advice on this? How to do it and what tools do I need. are there any tutorials floating around out there on this. Any help would be appreciated

Best bet is to go over to the BBR site and they have a (How to Video) online to watch...explains everything takes a few min to watch

.003" Intake .004" Exhaust

I did a search but couldnt seem to find your previous post, I knew I had seen it before but didnt have the problem then. I apologize for asking you to type it again. I will check out that site. Is there anyone else who could tell me what tools I would need to do this job or does the video also tell me that. anyway thanks for your response, you have always been very helpful Precision50

... 'member, check engine when cold, really cold. I think some valve slap (that ticking noise) is OK. I noticed it when I set mine as per P50's .003/.004.

So... cold right?

Errrr Yep.....:)

a lot of times when done (Hot) when the motor cools the valves can be tight and hang open or just the opposite Click and Clack even worse and have a poor running motor!

I also bought one of those screws from SGR and it made tuning my bike a whole lot easier, that along with all of precision50's advice in the beginning
