Ticking noise??

Recommended Posts

I installed stage 2 cams in my 2011.As soon as I started it up it has a ticking sound.Gets a little louder with RPM. Sounds like a valve that has to much clearnce.So I rode it a couple of hours then recheck the velve clearnce.Intake is 6 thousands and Ex is 8 thousands.Nothing looks out of place to to be making any noise...So would the ticking sound be normal with stage 2 cams??

Cams tick for mainly two reasons. Opening quickly or closing quickly. Open quickly is not an issue closing quickly is hard on the valves. Hotcams use a quick opening technique developed by Harvey Crane. This is actually a very clever design technique that give much better throttle response. The closing clearance ramp is identical to stock. Don't worry!
