Hey all. I just joined this forum a few days ago when I got my first zx6r. The bike was a steal and I'm starting to find out why. Firstly I checked the oil and it was nearly 2 quarts low. So I filled her up temporarily. Also noticed the cct was more then likely loose from some clicking. And so I adjusted the cct one click. Bike sounded great after I did that work. Rode her to dinner and on the way back gave her a little in second gear on the highway. As soon as I was done with the pull I heard a very loud tapping noise through my helmet at 80mph. It was very intermittent when cruising. As I lay on the throttle a bit it would get more consistent. Rode her all the way home and every time I would come to a stop and clutch in my oil light would flash a few times. I adjusted the idle up a bit and that fixed the issue. I have since changed the oil completely and I'm in the middle of tearing her down and just got the valve cover off.. What could this be? I'll post a video of the noise as soon as I get her all back together if I don't get it fixed. The tapping is non existent at idle and starts bad at 3.5 to 4k. And up. Also get a very heavy hesitation under acceleration at 6k. One more thing to note is as soon as I changed the oil. There was no tapping until I rode it. Then it started again.
