I've been riding my XX for a few months now and after changing the CCT Lifter with a new double green dot unit, I'm still not sure if my XX sounds exactly right. It runs extremely well, has TONS of smooth power, and has not hiccuped since I picked it up.

It has 24K miles on it and according to the previous owner he had the valve clearances checked at the dealer at around 20K miles. The motor just seems a little "tickier" than I would have expected, and I've never heard another one in person. My previous bikes were a Nighthawk 750 and a VFR800FI, neither of which ticked at all.

I'm in Westmont IL and it would be great if I could meet up with another XX owner so that we could compare the sound of our bikes. It would put my mind at ease if I knew my motor sounded normal. If it doesn't, well then it's time to start tracking down the culprit and fix it...

I am in Bartlett and would be happy to meet up with you sometime. A friend of mine just had their CCT lifter changed yesterday on their 98 'Bird with a double green dot and all the unfriendly noise went away.

Thanks guys. I have some house construction going on along with some family obligations but I'll be in touch when it looks like I'll have a free weekend to take a ride. Hopefully I'll have some time within the next couple of weekends.

It would be great to get a listen to another XX, and have someone take a listen to mine just to put my mind at ease about how it sounds.

Any chance someone from the area would be willing to meet up sometime and ride my bike? I'm trying to decide if the engine sounds normal or not but I just don't have a frame of reference.

Please PM me if you can help. Thanks!

I live @ 110 miles west of you just off I-80...and ride up the west coast of Michigan very often. New Buffalo and Saugatuck’s got great coffee shops that we frequent when passing thru. Let me know if you want to hook up with a bunch of addicts. We'll probably head that way on a day-ride this Sunday if the snow holds off...get to test my shiny new chain and sprockets...:evilaugh:
