Cant stand that sound anymore.

Hi friends,

My 07 600RR have about 23 000 KM. 1K kms ago the big ticking sound starded, and bike sound like **** at all speeds. My LeoVince pipe sound metalish and this ticking is getting me crazy.

I adjusted valves prematurely 300 km ago thinking it could help. (Bike did alot of track as well).

Also asked the tech to check the CCT was he was there. He said it was fine.

Is it my injectors then? Possibly bad A/F ratio? (even tho everything on the bike is stock except for leovince pipe and K&N air filter. Bike was running great with these 2000 km ago tho).

Any clues?

Here is the video of the sound even tho we dont hear it alot.

Thanks guys,

Does it go away on accel? Or is it completely constant?

Its pretty constant. I hear it even at high speed and whole exhaust sound different. (Slughish rich noise). Bike seem to be less responsive on the throttle.

Torked the manifold to 12 Nm. Still have the rattling-hugly-ticking noise. I feel like it does it just when i use throttle. Kind of a grinding noise like something is not right but i just cant figure what ;(. And neither the techs ive seen.

Ideas appreciated!

I'd double check the valves. Could be way tight on a couple exhaust valves

I'm really a noob when it comes to internal mechanics. We have more than one exhaust valve?

Sorry I missed that part.

Without opening it up its hard to speculate.

I'd take it back to the techs

No the grinding sound stops when i pull the clutch. Only the ticking keeps going but i guess its the injectors even tho they never sounded like that. Bike doesnt sound and response like it was 1000 miles ago. The grinding sound is proportional to the speed/throttle. The noise could be described as if you gently touch a running fan with an object. I feel like its related to my power loss and odd exhaust sound. (I have a leovince that now sound like a can of coca-cola).

Things ive done so far:
-Valves adjustement at Honde Service
-Cct check by honda tech
-Replace oil and filter with Rotella T6
-Adjusted exhaust manifold bolts to right torque.
-seafoam in gas line.

Thing i will do next:
-remove tank and clean air filter
-check stator/rotor

Any other ideas?

Maybe some clutch issues if you loose power maybe your clutch is slipping or something like that. (may be a cause of power loss) Just pull the cover off and see what's Inside :P The ticking sound may be the valves too loose. I know many people that take their bike to the shop and the shop do bad jobs. for me I always do my things on my own on my bike :P so if I make a mistake it's mine not the dealer's one.

... spark plug exploded? Would account for the weird noise and power loss, though you don't have nearly enough km's for that to be likely.

Is it plain obvious if you have 1 bad spark plug? The loss of power aint too severe.

I think the noise is getting worst. Really sound metalish during throttle only. Got an appointement with the Techs on Saturday. I'll keep you updated.

Scared as **** to ride it until then even tho its my only ride to work this week.

EDIT: I'm starting to think its the CCT even tho the techs said it was fine. I doubt they tried the bike and it sound normal at idle. Since its been load of miles i do with this sound, can a bad CCT damage parts pretty hard? Like the cam chain perhaps? And is it safe to drive it around even tho the sound agravated?

They installed me the wrong chain after they did my valve adjustement. Chain was too wide and was sliding left to right on the sprockets.

That solved a big part of the grinding sound.

For the performance, i guess ill get a power commander in there. Techs told me even just a slip on and a K&N air filter is enough to **** up A\F ratio. He also told me it could be in my head as well after 3 years riding it. (He had the same problems with all his bikes thinking they just lost performance after a while but its just the adaptation.)
