    howdy all.

    I have a 2014 racer. 8k Miles. I’ve had for 4K.

    Lately I’ve heard a steady tick tick tick tick coming from what seems to be the top of the heads. Ticking doesn’t change rate at different speeds. Stays constant. Not super loud, but not non-existent either.

    I say “lately”, but maybe it’s always been there and after a year of getting used to the exhaust note perhaps I am just more sensitive to this sound, or could something need adjustments of some sort?

    Thanks in advance.

    Most likely adjust the valves. If done w/600mi check the next check is 6Kmi. You are 2K past and that's why you are hearing them tic, tic.
    I would also re-torquing the heads too just in case this wasn't done at 600mi check-up.
