ticking or knocking
A couple days ago I accidently tipped my bike over to the right-hand side and I caught it so as it layed over gently. A small amount of gas came out the right carb intake. I picked it up and I let it set about 30 min and then I fired it up. It runs good but now I am hearing a slight, irregular ticking or knocking sound comming from what sounds like the front or middle part of the motor, and it sounds louder on the LEFT side. This only happens after I start it and let it warm up, but after I ride it a few min, it quits again untill I let it get cold or cool down a while. Any suggestions as to what this sound could be? It doesent matter how hot it gets, I can let it idle all day and sound won't go away untill I ride it about 5 miles or so...then I cannot hear it untill it cools down(engine off) for a while. Thanks.
