hey guys ! put 200 miles on mine today , beautiful twisting southern Ohio roads . I noticed that my valve train was appearing to get a little louder. Haven't heard another 109r run , is mine the only one or is it a 109r thing ?

I had a V65 16valve job and you could hear them.Adjustment was .005,if you wanted to here no noise you would have to set them 2to 3 thousands.It is for the slop in the cam.

well, the design on this one has the chain basically sliding along that whole arc on one side of the engine. probably going to remain noisy.

Chain driven DOHC... it's gonna be a little noisy. In fact, I'd say of you DON'T hear them you should worry, as that means they're probably too tight...

Yep, Noisy here too. After putting Synthetic oil in at the first change it quieted down a little but it's still pretty noisy.

It's not a 109 thing, it's a SUZUKI thing. My 2000 vz800 makes the exact same sounds. Don't worry, the 800 has almost 70,000 miles on it now and has never missed a beat. In fact , my wife has been chasing me around on it as I break in the 109.

High Performance engines = noisy valvetrains in most cases. Most hyper sportbikes sound like that, and keep in mind you don't have fairings to insulate the noise. You should hear my Buell XB-12 and ZX-10R, sounds like they're coming apart half the time
