954 RR3 valve ticking.

Having recently changed my crash helmet I have began to notice a top end ticking when the bike is moving.
I know that the engine cases are quite thin therfore the engine is "noisey" and I have always been able to hear a ticking noise when idling without my lid on.
I was wondering if any body else gets the ticking noise when on the move. I notice it most when around town around 3-4000 rpm, above this I can only here the exhaust. It seems to happen in all throttle positions.
Does any body think it is the normal valve ticking or could it be the cam chain tensioner or the chain itself?
Many Thanks.

Re: 954 RR3 valve ticking.

Mine ticks all though the day, what ever rev it is at... The valves will need to be adjusted in the future but it had had its 16thou service so I'm lead to believe its just how it is.

You can hear her a little more when sitting at lights...

Re: 954 RR3 valve ticking.

My 929 is the same way... ticking very pronounced at idle when there is a car to reflect the sound back at me, also more pronounced when it is cold. Anything over 2k and i cant hear it anymore though. Mine has always been like that, i suspect thats just the way it is.

Re: 954 RR3 valve ticking.

Same (problem?) with my 954, bought it with 13000 on the clock and had valve clearance done at 16k by honda, still made the same noise, but they had a 954 on the forecourt which I asked them to start, it was quiet as a mouse, no noise whatsoever, so I dont know if this is a problem or not, Honda told me it wasnt, but a noise to me says there is movement somewhere where it shouldnt be!

Re: 954 RR3 valve ticking.

All my bikes including Honda's have ticked. Some more than others. My current 954 has it also. One will usually be louder than the others.

Re: 954 RR3 valve ticking.

Many thanks guy's. Mine has just done 12000 and had the service slightly early. Next service should be the 16000 with valve clearances but it sounds like that doesn't really make any difference.
Guess thats just the way they are!
