I actually did figure it out. The ticking wasn’t that bad but it was a combo of ticking and an air noise. I did a leak down test and found air was getting past the valves. The reason was because filter oil was getting sucked from the filter onto the ... more »

The 450s don’t have the hydraulic tensioner... it’s spring tension with notches to keep it from loosening. Thanks though

Hell yeah, if you happen to have the time take a 15 sec vid and post it somewhere. Ha. It seemed to come out of nowhere at about 24 hours. In my opinion there shouldn’t be anything failing at this point unless something is defective. Thanks man!

Not the intention, trying to see if anyone thinks the extra ticking/air noise is the same as other bikes. If not the bike is getting torn apart. But THANKS for the observation.

Did yours sounds similar to mine? I reshimmed it and inspected the cam, the rocker shafts and rocker arms and they all looked good. Cam tensioner and chain are good. Bike runs fine as well.

I hope I'm being paranoid but its weird. Ha. If I hear another one idle and run and it sounds the same then I'll be set. Any chance you want to post a vid of yours idling?

I need some help… As I was riding recently, I noticed a sudden change in the sound of my bike. It has 25 hours on it and has been maintained with regular oil and oil filter changes. Air filter every ride, along with the use of the Motorex oil. First ... more »
