85 XL600R Engine rattle cold/warm only

Recommended Posts

First day riding bike and I noticed a fairly loud rattle but only under med to hard load when cold and warm...noise goes away when fully warmed up...sounds like in the top end, almost like pinging but you would think it would still do this when hot. Bike has 10K miles on it...fresh oil.

Thanks,

KC

yeah thats typical of valves, when cold the lash is more and as the metal heats up they expand and close the gap if you will taking alot of the noise away.
