tic tic, click click sound

Morgning everyone! I own a honda vtr 1000 firestorm with 40000 km! At 38000 km the spring from the CCT broked up at the front cylinder! I have buyed 2 new CCT and the distribution chain only for the front cylinder! After i ve changed those the engine sounds great, but now after only 2000km I started to hear a tic tic or click click from the back cylinder!At 38000 the compresion test was exactly like in the user manual and that means my valves are ok!
What kind of problem I have with the clicking sound>?/???thx

most likely the carb slides. totally normal and most vtrs have a distinct "tick tick" to them.

Sorry to hear of your troubles but the bike is far from ****. Maybe you are the worst wrench ever..... Is it the bikes fault that someone didn't install a fastener correctly? Is it the bikes fault you either ordered the wrong part or can't install it properly?

Like I said, sorry about your run of luck but after the initial CCT failure the rest of the issues are on you or who ever worked on the bike, not the bike itself.

Dude, your post are making my monitor reek of frustration. I know because I used to get that way myself. Back off for a little while and calm down a bit. You're just going to make things worse and possibly break a very important part. Don't get pissed off by the questions... are you sure you ordered the correct part? Can you compare it to the old one? Can you take a picture of it and post it?

That right there almost made me spew my Coke all over my keyboard. I pictured someone throwing tools around and kicking parts everywhere in a rage and then reading it.

I do wonder how loud the tic tic or click click was while the cam bolt ate through the valve cover and why you kept running the bike while it had to be making some rather bad sounds?

I'm not really a gambling sort of person, but if I had to bet I'd say it didn't just happen over night either.

tic tic tic sound can also come from the exhaust gasket if it aint fit right, i have tryed it

I put on a pair of Leo Vince exhausts, first 14 days np at all. suddenly on a trip for 640 km it stated tic tic tic, all the time, wass a verry verry long way home, thinking about engine problems, and so on.

at first i dident think about exhaust gasket, so i changes my CCT´s just to be sure, checked valves, changes oil and so on, but still tic tic tic, wass driving me crazy. Thought i would change back to stock exhaust, just so i could hear where the sound came from, stock exhaust = np any more. OMG did i fell stupid, put on the Leo´s again, and the tic tic tic started again

Changed the exhaust gaskets and no more tic tic for me

Thx GOD.


VTR all the way
