Question about Yamaha Stratoliner S Motorcycles
Sounds like a defective lifter.
Should still be Under warranty. Take it back let them fix it.
Checking around I found this tidbit:
"turned out that I screwed up and overfilled the bike with oil, which apparently got aerated and managed to form an air bubble in one hydraulic lifter Tappety tap. Removing a half quart of oil or so made the problem go away."
Also read where there was a recall on these concerning the lifters.
Supports my theory it is possibly a defective part.
Since you only have 600 miles on the bike. This is the time to take it back to have the break in oil replaced. Have them check it.
Hope this helps.
