valve adjustment

How often do you need to adjust the valves on a 600rr. I am assuming that is what it is i hear a smattle rattle when i raise the rpms. Any help would be appreciated.

Does the rattle go away when you raise the rpm's? Because the Cam chain tensioner can make a rattle on heavy weight oil. It sounds like a bad lifter in a car.

if u got a bad cam chain tensor and the cam chain is a lil loose it will also make a very noticable rattle when the RPMs are dropping after u rev it up in N.

The noise seems to quiet down when the rpms are raised. It also makes a noise when the clutch is released and when i pull the clutch lever in it goes away almost like a clutch chatter. Sorry guys but i dont know about honda i am on my first and it is alot diffrent from suzuki.

It doesn't sound like anything you should be worried about. Both descriptions sound normal to me.
