I'm not sure what this noise is but i know its coming from the front cylinder. I have rebuilt both ACCT's, and this noise is not there all the time. Sometimes it gets louder at certain RPMs then it goes away. But Friday after riding a little bit the noise was there when i got back so i shot a small clip of video hoping you guys can tell me what it is.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

all i heard was the exhaust ... u can try the screw driver technique if u dont have a stethoscope and put the screwdriver where u think u here the noise (on the case) and the handle to your ear and try to pin point the noise... i didnt hear anything out of the ordinary
Yes, there is a ticking my bike does not have. The 454LTD I bought for my wife this spring gives a similar tick when it is started up, but it goes away in a few minutes. I suspect it is valve noise. But let's wait an see what the EXPERT says about it - you know who I mean..
