The 1100 Custom requires the valves to be adjusted every 3000 miles.
It is best to use high octane gas also. Regular or shall I say CHEAP gas will over time cause the pinging or spark knock.

Pinging could also be something worse if it does not go away with valve adjustment and better gas. Get it checked right away.
Kinda miss my ole 1100 custom but the Yamaha Raider I have now does not require valve adjustments every 3,000 miles. And fast.... oh dear lord. :)

Hope this helps!

While going 40 -50 mph and then accelerating enough to kick in the passing gear the engine makes a rattling clacking like sound, its a 4.6 ltr v-8


It sounds like the engine is "pinging" as you are speeding up. If so, this is often caused by plugged EGR passages at the intake elbow or a non-functioning EGR valve. The EGR valve allows a small amount of exhaust gasses back into the intake manifold to slow and cool the combustion down slightly to prevent the fuel from burning too fast [which we hear as a pinging sound] and it helps reduce emissions at the tailpipe. When the valve quits working or the passages get blocked the pinging sound will be heard when accelerating or at higher speeds & heavier loads. Pinging is not good for an engine and should be checked out as soon as possible. A quick test drive with a good service tech should quickly narrow down the cause of the noise. Hope this helps and good luck!
