Out riding today on my 2014 triumph Bonneville t100 out of nowhere a loud ticking sound coming from cam cover area. Increases with throttle and stops on deceleration. Any ideas?

Valve tappets. Not sure if they are hydraulic - self adjusting or not.

You aren't alone, this says it is the cam chain tensioner which was my second theory. The reason it stops when you decelerate is that the other side of the chain is under tension. Fix sooner rather than later.

Ticking coming from engine 2000 town and country

Ticking is usually a sign of improper oil level or exhaust leaks often have a ticking sound. Try to listen to see if its in time with the normal exhaust sounds. If the oil level is fine and it doesnt sound like the exhaust, its probably a small mechanical issue. Get it checked out by a mechanic before the ticking object breaks and becomes worse.

I understand the you hear a ticking sound from the Hard disk.

I am sorry to say that it is not a good sign if you hear a ticking sound from the hard disk. It means the header is bad. I short the hard is crashed. At this point you may need to contact the manufacturer for a replacement if it is in warranty or had to purchase a new one.

Thanks and regards,

Computer does not recognise, device making ticking sound


the ticking sound is a sign that the hard disk has crashed.

I would advise that you get another hard disk. Your present hard disk is having a bad sector.

Even if you are able to fix the problem, sooner or later, it would still disturb again.

So why not just change it once and for all.

All the best.

Valve ticking

It is not a valve. It is the purg selinoid for the evaporator. It is a normal noise and will not cause any problems. I have the same issue on my 300C. They may have redesigned it on the 08 and newer to get rid of the ticking noise. Chrysler has had many complaints about this noisey selinoid
