xt600 valve noise

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have my bike (85 xt600) running so good. Only thing it does is when it is cold for about 30 secs there is a little valve noise. After around 30 secs or so it goes away. I have them adjusted and the auto decamp adjusted as per the manual. Any ideas or is it to be expected?

Thanks Mark

Had the same issue with my xt550 a while back. seemed like it started one day making a little noise and got a little worse as time went on. My valve lash was correct as well. I was expecting the worse when I ran across a guy who told me to check the oil strainer (down by the skid plate on my 550). Took it out and it was about 80% clogged with gasket sealer from the guy who owned it before me. It was starving my top end for oil when I first started the bike up. Might start there.

Good luck
