Question about 2001 kawasaki ZRX 1100 R
Hei guys,i have a zrx 1100 it's a 2001 ,when you speed up in low gear first and second ,the compression is very high and the motor opens a safety pressure release valve that internally lets a bit of pressure off from the heads,and the opening and closing of that valve sounds like a gragragra buy thrust me it is absolutely normal ,no defect there at all,it's the sound of a device.

Another thing to check - could be that your inlet camshaft journals or bearings are worn
Another possible cause of the rattle could be that at some point the camchain tensioner has been taken apart and the ball bearing which presses on the ratchet lock has dropped out. If the ball bearing has been lost, the end of the spring pops out of a hole in the side of the camchain tensioner and allows the tensioner blade to be pushed back, allowing excess play in the camchain.

Hi ...... Does noise 'go-away' if you pull in the clutch ? Could be a few things, cam chain needs adjustment or replacement (35,000 miles-ish), rotor on some Kawasakis made up of steel centre,alloy middle & steel outer. Parts can become loose, short term solution is to centre tap/spot sections but ultimately replace rotor. Have you ever had the left casing off ? Is there a gasket fitted or a thinner pattern type fitted ? When was the last time valve clearences checked/changed ? Did they change shims on that side ?
Let us know how you get on.
