So I had a little accident yesterday I already posted that on the crash boom bang thread but I slid out the other night in cold weather going about 10mph and it only slid about 5 feet. But anyhow the bike is making some weird noise it sounds like it's coming from the right side of the engine and it sounds like it only makes a noise when I rev the bike. It's not crazy loud but theres definitely a sound there. I'll post a link to the youtube video so everyone can get an idea of what I'm hearing. By the way there is no damage to the engine casing or anything like that just the fairings were damaged.
Thank you

Cam chain for sure. It either needs a new tensioner or a new chain.

Is that a hard thing to do put a new tensioner in or tighten the chain?

Should I change the belt
I assume you mean the chain? no I wouldn't change it. the CCT's are well known for being $hit on these bikes. swap it out & the noise should disappear instantly, plus its a lot easier to check that first rather than stripping the engine

no worries. I swapped mine fairly recently, solved the buzzing noise instantly, just be sure to read that "how to" completely before starting it. I've heard a few horror stories of people rushing it

Yeah I'll probably just keep my laptop next to me while working on it and do everything step by step to make sure I do it correctly but it doesn't seem too bad from what I'm seeing on that how to thread

Hey am I looking for the cam chain tensioner or the lifter. The guy at my local dealer said its two different parts and people just refer to the lifter as the tensioner

its the lifter/tensioner you want, I think the part number is 14520-MEE-003 or 14520-MEE-013, one of those anyway

I've checked, its definetely 14520-MEE-013 you need
Yeah I ordered one today with the gasket it should be in, in about a week

My bike does that when it's cold...I've been assuming I need to adjust the valves lol (sounds like valve tapping in a car)...maybe I'll give the CCT a shot...that is way easier than digging for valves :D

Yep that's why I posted up the vid. I figured I'd try to get some input from people who really knew a lot about the bike so I wouldn't have to dig through the whole bike

Hey I put on a new oem cct and my bike still makes the same noise. is it possible that I got a bad cct or do you think it's something else?

Thanks

I guess its possible but unlikely. could you just be hearing normal engine noise & just paying closer attention to it? I know I do that sometimes

I mean maybe I could be but that sound from the video I put up is still there after I changed the CCT and it only does it when I rev the bike. At idle it doesn't make that sound.
