Hey guys I'm new here, I never had an R1, but I've own a few bikes before: 929s, GSX-R 1000s, ZX-10R, and a Duke 998. I just picked up my 08 R1 a week ago, now @ 520 miles I've noticed rapid ticks between 2500 and 3500 rpm, it almost sounds like valve noise. Is that normal for R1s? I'll mention it to the Dealer when I go in for the 600 miles service, I just want some feed back from all you R1 gurus out there. Thanks guys.
