Could be chain slack until it warms up. Check your tensioner, and possibly needs valve adjustment if it hasn't been done. On a worse note, could be oil pump taking time to get oil to the top end.

Ticking noise in engine .louder when warm.is it the cam chain


A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

When warm i notice a cam chain type noise. could this be a worn cam chain tensioner . the bike has covered 36000 miles


it can either be a worn tensioner or need for a valve adjustment. if you rev the engine and noise goes away, you need a new cam chain tensioner. if the noise remains or gets worse when you rev it up, you need a valve adjustment and should replac the tensioner anyway. 36,000 miles on the motor is definitely mileage for an adjustment if it's never had one.

CLACKING NOISE FROM L/H CYLINDER


top end noise usaully the sign of needing a valve adjustment. some occassions just need a new cam chain tensioner. when you rev up engine rpms, if the sound goes away that means your tensioner is bad and not adjusting properly. if the noise gets worse then it's time to let a technician do his thing.

I bought a 1979 GS 750 yesterday. The engine seems fine when first started, but after a few minutes begins to rattle from the top end. The noise disappears over 2000 rpm. Can you help please?


I have a 1977 GS750 and I found that the valves begin to make noise when the valve shims need replacing. You might see if this is similar in your manual for your machine.

Noise in trans or in primary chain


It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

ZRX1100 P reg (1990?) Runs nice and smooth, is as ecomical as usual, serviced recently (no carb icing). When cold and on tick over, there is a clatter as if something is loose. Using choke, noise goes away...


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.
