    What's this noise?! Engine ticking

    Hi Guys,
    Been having this annoying noise for a while now, check video https://youtu.be/BSTov1y1vME

    In neutral the noise is there, then when you press the clutch it gets quieter.

    When in gear and Clutch is in the noise is quiet and then when releasing the clutch, ticking gets much worse.

    Any help and advice would be great, many thanks

    Sounds fine to me. Big transmission parts knocking around, and the sound goes away when you pull in the clutch. If it gets louder, or develops a knock, then you have a worry.

    I would check the carb sync first, then the cam chain adjustment.

    Sounds like clutch rattle as Ixxion and Rolling have stated. Get the carbs synched and adjust your idle up to 1200 and it should stop.

    Third thread tonight with the same clutch noise. Must be beginning riding season for a bunch of folks
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Season you say? Hmm

    You mean some people stop?
