Yup, pretty constant. Same loudness regardless of temperature. It's really noisy behind the clutch cover as well as the top of the cylinder head. I know they make a lot of mechanical noise, but this seems to be much louder than I remember.My bike did some ticking last summer. Real random, usually early morning starts. But as soon as I would here it, once it warmed up, it was gone. And it wasn't every day. Hasn't done it in a long time. Is it constant on yours?
Why waste your time tip-toeing through life just to arrive at death safely?
I know guys here say they smoke a lot for the first few hundred to thousand miles, but I don't remember it smoking like this until it started getting noisy. I don't know what the relationship would be there though.
All I can say is; I'm really glad I didn't get around to putting on the exhaust a few days earlier. :sweatdrop:
