Can anyone help me out with a clicking noise

Recommended Posts

Some valve ticking is normal. Can you take a video of it so we can hear it though to be sure ?

Ditto w/my xr400. I checked my valves, they were in tol., and noise is still there. My guess is my cam chain is loose. I'm sure the answer is in this forum...somewhere.

A ticking noise coming from the head area is normal. It's when you don't hear anything that you should be concerned, as that could indicate your valve clearances are too tight, but sloppy valve clearances can cause them to be a little louder than normal.

Also, if you have a skidplate on, it will tend to amplify/reflect engine noises back up at you. Can be unsettling if you're not accustomed to it.

Check/set your valves to be sure they're in spec.

I have a clicking noise coming from the engine. Has anyone else had this, is it normal?
