929 engine noise - ticking

I noticed that my 929 is making a ticking noise in the engine. The bike has 35000 KM (about 21900 miles).
Could it be the valves? Or is it too soon do adjust/inspect them?
One more info: the bike only makes the noise when it is hot... The oil is Mobil Super Moto 15w50, has about 1000 km.

It ticks when idling?
Or regardless of RPM?
Shimmed valves get tighter so they don't tick when they need doing.

Re: 929 engine noise - ticking

@bladeracer I believe that it only ticks when idling, but I will have to make the test next weekend.
If I am correct, do you know what could be the issue?

Re: 929 engine noise - ticking

Could be your cam chain, look into an MCCT (manual cam chain tensioner).

Can I remove and clean the automatic that came with the bike before thinking of replacing it with a manual one?
