Bender, Martin, or anybody else. As you know my bike is running and I complained of the more than normal r1 tick. Well I was trying to find it exactly and it sounded like it was coming directly from the bottom of the oil pan right above the exup. Than I took off th plastics and it sounded like it was coming from the exup. I can hear the same sound projected at the end of the pipe just before the can. It sounds exactly like the infamous r1 tick but louder and from the very bottom of engine. I really couldnt tell if it was coming from the pan or the exup just could tell that area. It doesnt sound like a rod or anything. My exup is adjusted perfectly to service manual specs. What do you think?
