Bike Sounds like a Babies Rattle

Recommended Posts

Stripped Bike down as Heard a Rattle and was burning oil, Changed Cam Chain and Rings and checked stem seals and cleaned valves. Put everything back and on first starting no rattle and then after 100 miles rattling is worse than before and is coming from the head area. Sounds like a pieces of metal rattling around in there randomly. I have took off the Head Cover and the Chain is still Tight (maybe even to tight) and all looks ok but rattling is getting worse. Also when the bike gets hot its running really fast like the chokes on. The only way of getting it to run normally is to let out the clutch a few times and let the bike roll forward in gear and then pull it back in and it runs normally ( still with rattle though)Also still burning oil Anyone any ideas????
