:dontknow:Hey Guys, ive been riding for a few years but never a vtwin. Ive noticed kinda a ticking noise coming from the motor, more noticable when moving. Is this normal with the BEAST. She runs great, just that little tick.

I've been experiencing the same noise on my bike for some time now. Valves checked out at 14,500 miles O.K. Runs like a champ. Not been able to pin it down.

I think what you are hearing is the solenoid that fires the fuel injectors. If you lift the hood of your car and listen, you will hear a bunch of clicking coming from the injectors. The injectors on your bike do the same thing.

I have the same exact thing. In the beginning I worried about it as it is definitely noticable, especially with your helmet on. Please put your mind at ease my friend, mine does the same thing and runs strong.

My wife's S50 ticks and it's not even fuel injected. Most likely you're hearing either clutch noise, fuel injectors, or something other mechanical in the engine. There's a lot of stuff turning in there to make noises.

Mine does it too, along with a whine in the lower gears at slow cruising speeds. It's been doing it for 3 1/2 years.

Thats what my clicking is

and I didnt hear it much till I put the K&N's in. More free flowing area and noise can get out easier as well, I hear my injectors, No prob, just gas it more so all you hear is the exhaust LOL
