Got the TLR out at the weekend and noticed a slight knock, tick type noise from the engine, should I be worried are these engines usually quiet ?
Only the second time its been out since purchasing in October due to refurb and weather.

Probably normal.. The crank will "knock" side to side a bit as well as the typical TL tick.. Clatter from chain tensioners/ scissor gears/ de-compressors on camshafts.. All normal.. Now a heavy hammer sound upon rev up and/or decell no bueno.. Rods for sure.. I know 馃槤

Thanks Crag V twins are new for me, with 22000 on the clock wasnt expecting any issues. The soundtrack from the TLR is pretty spectacular and drowns out the engine noise when in motion.

No problem.. About the only other twin noisier than the TL (other than a pig ie hog) is the dry clutch Duc.
22000 miles? It's not even broke in yet lol
Just turned 155,000 on my '02 and still runs with the best of them!
