05 engine question

Recommended Posts

I just rebuilt my engine and transmission, except for the crank and rod. All genuine Honda parts. Put it back together, and it has a "ticking sound" like a film real in a movie projector. tick, tick, tick, tick. lol I'm sure everything was installed correctly. I checked cam tensioner, exhaust has a new seal and is torqued correctly. Valves are adjusted. I do have a Hot cams Stage 1 in her. I rode a good 150 miles throught the desert and single track. The Noise didn't go away, and It Runs Hard. Just noisy. Do you guys have any suggestions.

I'd say it has to do with your cam and valve clearances.

Mine ticked like that before I tightened up the valve clearances a little bit.

There have been a bunch of guys on here that have said they have a ticking noise after installing a Hotcams cam.

So would you recomnend runing the intake and exhaust valves a little tighter than stock recomnedation?

Yes, .004" on the intakes and .006 on the exhaust.

The HotCams cam seems to rattle more than the stocker anyway. Not sure if its the core or the ramps or what, but it makes more noise.
