Yes , the Goldwing valves are easily adjusted by taking off the valve covers. On the top left back of the motor is an engine cap that if removed will tell you the top dead center for the cylinders . T-1 position , loose valves on front right cylinder (number 1) TDC compression stroke.

I've got a slight ticking noise, but not at start-up. After the engine warms up, it will start out very faint and gradually get louder. After about 2 - 3 minutes, it goes away. This is a High M


This sounds like a tappet (cam follower/rocker arm) is at max clearance. This can be the sign of cam lobe wear or follower wear on its internal clearances or valve tip wear.

I have a 2004 honda goldwing 1800 i don't ride it much at all but i start it once a week and let it run. I went to start it to go for a ride today and it had a knocking noise and it stoped so i rode it to...


Hello Gabe,

If the "knocking" noise sounds like it's coming from the lower end, listen to see if it's around the clutch area. My was making a "knocking" noise, only on cold starts, which sounded like the bike was trying to engage into gear. I drained the fluid from the clutch system and refilled with clean DOT 4 brake fluid. This stopped the problem.

Ironically enough, I was having the "ticking" problem too. When I would start my bike, about 30 seconds into warming it up, I heard a ticking noise for 2 -3 seconds of the right side of the bike. The Wing uses a hydraulic Valve and Tappet system which will, eventually, make noise if you run "low grade" fuel in the Wing. Go to your local Wal-Mart, or parts store, and buy a can of Sea Foam. Follow the directions on the bottle for the amount to use with a full tank of fuel (add it to your gas tank, not your crankcase). Fill your tank with Premium fuel and add the Sea Foam. Do this for two fill-ups and this should clean your valves and clear up your noise(s).

NOTE: any fuel with Ethanol in it is NOT good for bikes or cars and will cause buildup on your Valves. Sea Foam ALWAYS works. This is a cheap way to find out if it is just deposits or if you are going to need a mechanic.

2002 hd fat boy 1450 kiryakin air filter vince hines 2in1 pipe 16000km my problems is on the left side on both top valve cover theres a clicking noise coming from there more likely when the engine warms up...


What you're hearing is the rocker arm opening the valves. This is normal operating noise.

Your Harley is an older design pushrod operated engine. Unlike most other motorcycles engines, Harley does not use overhead cams in any of their bikes other than the V-Rod. Additionally, there is no sound deadening material inside the rocker box covers. Although the engine is equipped with hydraulic tappets, there is a bit of running clearance in the rocker arms and their shafts they run on.

In short, this is not unusual and your Harley will run for many miles. If you can hear that clicking, it sounds like you need to take the baffles out of that V&H pipe.

To see a diagram of your engine, go to BikeBandit.com. , click on OEM and choose your bike or any Big Twin of that year.

Good Luck

Valve train noise


The ticking sound is most likely caused by uneven wear on the cam lobes. The next time you've got the valve covers off, take a look at the cams and you will likely see scuff marks on one or more of the high-points of the camshaft lobes. This can cause a ticking sound each time that part of the lobe comes in contact with the rocker arm. The only cure for this would be to replace the cam and rocker arms - which is not worth the many $$ it will cost. The noise may be annoying, but isn't anything to worry about. My Goldwing started making a ticking sound at about 90,000 miles - and continues to this day, now with more than 169,000 miles on the engine.
Uneven cam lobe wear can also cause lateral movement of the rocker arms - and a ticking sound as the rockers move slightly sideways on their shafts (note the springs on the shafts that hold the rockers lightly to one side).
I should also mention that pitted valve stem tips can also cause a ticking noise. In any event, do not run the engine with less than the specified .004" valve tappet clearance as this can cause valve damage and compression loss.

Bike is making a knocking noise that sounds like


The tappets in your engine are hydraulic and there is no adjustment to them. As the engine warms up and expands, the tappets expand to maintain zero backlash. I've seen the rollers on the end of the tappets go bad and when they do, it sounds like someone with a sledgehammer in the motor. But, I've never seen one go bad at 3000 miles. The earliest I've seen one go bad is 13K miles.

If I had to guess, with only 3000 miles on a 2001 model bike, I'd guess bad gas. Put some fresh gasoline in the tank and make sure that it contains no more than 10% ethanol.

Good Luck

Noise when bike is off, Air compressor?


If you cut the bike off using the kill switch, but left the ignition key turned on, the electric cooling fan behind the radiator will sometimes come on for a little while. Turning off the ignition key will stop the fan.
