SOURCE: On mySuzuki 600 Bandit 2003,

Normally, a knocking sound in a specific gear set indicates a broken gear tooth. When replacing a broken gear, replace the gear(s) it engages with as well. If you don't replace them you will have the pleasure of doing the repair job all over again when the weakened tooth on the existing gear(s) breaks off. Remember, whatever caused the problem in the first place put pressure on both the broken tooth and the gear it was engaged to at the time. Most likely is a tooth on a slider gear.

Could be your blend door getting stuck thats making that ticking noise. Check your heater hoses to make sure they are getting hot. Check with caution theu may be very hot.

I have a low speed ticking sound from front end

The speedometer drive may be making a noise. Check the wheel bearings by lifting the front end and manually spinning the front wheel. See if it shakes, grinds or ticks.

My 1996 Suzuki Bandit 600 makes a tic-toc noise, as I accelerate. It increases in speed as the motor gains rpm, coming from the clutch area. New chain and sprockets so thats not the issue. How do I check...

Shift cams ( more correctly known as shift drums ), never get broken and I have never seen one wear out in over 40 years of fixing bikes. No real pressure is put on them and they only rotate due to the shift lever moving up or down. The noise is likely a broken tooth on the clutch hub or generator gear or (possibly), too much slack in the cam chain. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_198.gif

Ticking noise in 6th mainly on deceleration

Check your chain and sprockets, sometimes the chain wears the sprocket out, "curving" the teeth so it hooks the chain. You probably have the ticking in lower gears as well, but it only hooks the chain at speed - and in 6th the engine revs are lower, the engine is quieter, so you hear the chain easier.

Ticking noise and general engine noise after burnouts...

If he was doing burnouts it could be multiple problems - overheating, too many revs, drivetrain hammered.
Certainly a lot of burnouts can cause overheating - no air and lots of revs gets things hot really fast!
High revs can result in camchain issues, piston/valves coming together, broken rings, siezed pistons, broken bearings, and much more :)
Sorry to hear this - I suggest a trip to a bike mechanic to get a diagnosis before it gets worse and costs you a packet.

How good is this bike for long tours?

The bandit 600 would be great for the twists and turns on european roads, but I suspect it might be to uncomfortable for long distances. It's not a touring motorcycle, and it's suspension is a bit stiff to run on long distances.
