My 636 A1 has started to make a ticking noise that rises with revs.
It is most noticeable at 4-5 k with a distinct resonance at 4.5k revs.

I have had Kawasakis before that had noisey cam chain adjusters and I was wondering if this is likely the same thing?
It has only become noticeable in the last few hundred miles, the bike has only just hit 4,800 miles now.

I was gonna wait till 6k and then get the full service done with carb synch and valve check, but I am wondering if I should put it in a bit realy to get this checked out.

Cheers

Hey i have been through that before .. My zx6rr had a ticking noise sounded like a valve i took it to the dealer they said it was in the bottom end , but i didnt buy it, so i took the valve cover off everything looked good when i put the cover back on the noise was gone so i guess it had somthing to do with the chain tensioner .. Not sure if that helps but good luck.

Well, as I mentioned in another thread, I've just had mine checked out and it's all tickety-boo, noises and all.
Indeed, they all do that sir!
