Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Change the oil filter as well.

SOURCE: I have a Honda XR 600 R and i need to know where

10w40 API SE or SF and higher, my manual for the 600 then has a typo and lists 1litre for an xr100, but I remember it is about 1.5 litres. It goes into the dipstick hole, you will need a small funnel. Get your oil from a bike shop, or auto store, but make sure is says suitable for 4 stroke motorcycles, as car oils have friction modifiers that will cause clutch slip. Good bikes but a little heavy in tight stuff compared to wr's etc

I have a really bad ticking noise coming from the top end of the motor. i have adjusted the rocker arms to were i believe they should be and the noise is still there? it is a mid 80's honda 350 quad.

Hi, does oil reaches the rocker box abundantly ?
You must adjust the valve gap according to manufacturer speficarions.
Maybe you pressure release valve is set to low and you d'ont have enough pressure to reach the rocker arms
good luck

How to adjust valves on chevy tahoe99 v8 4wheel drive 5.7

Adjustiyour hydraulic lifters with the engine running Startt the engine and allow it to warm up. Begin to loosen one of the rocker arm adjusting nuts. You should hear the valvetrain just start to "clatter". Slowing tighten it down until the "clatter" just stops and then turn it 1/4 - 1/2 turn additional to set the plunger depth (lifter preload). Continue this procedure on all the valves. If you hear excessive noises or the vehicle runs crappy you will be doing the procedure again. As stated above, if you have access to a mechanic's stethoscope, you can set the end at the top of the rocker stud to listen to the noise a loose adjustment makes, which will make finding "zero" lash easier. I have an old set of valve covers with the top cut out to minimize the mess.

I am considering buying a Honda 750 Shadow Aero with 18,000 miles. My wife looked at it today and said she thought she heard a knocking sound in the engine. It runs fine and because of hearing problems,...

Knocks, Rattles, Whining, Clunks, and Grinding noises coming from the engine are not good signs.

Light Tapping noise could be a few things.

A dirty oil filter will cause the top end to make tapping sound until the oil warms up and, then the noise goes away, that might be why you didn't hear it, but she did at first.

If the valves/rockers continue to make noise, it probably just needs the valve clearance checked & adjusted. If they continue to make noise after this, then its a sign of wear to one or more of the valve componets.(rockers worn, lifters worn etc)

With only 18000 miles, its probably just dirty oil filter.

The valves are making loud ticking noise, thought they were adjusted right, recently rebuilt the top end and replaced all the rocker arms

Double check the tolerances, a loose lock nut on a tappet can make noise. Some times a bad or missing exhaust o-ring can cause a ticking sound, make sure you remove the old exhaust gasket and install a new one.

How to adjust valves.

The intake valves set at .006 plus or minus .001
The exhaust valves set at .008 plus or minus .001
Remove the rectangular valve access covers at the top front and top rear of the cylinder head. With the engine cold, remove the spark plug. Turn the flywheel to TDC compression then place the specified thickness flat feeler gauge between the top of the valve stem and the adjuster on the rocker arm. Set the adjuster so that there is a slight drag when removing the gauge. There should be a valve adjusting tool set in your tool kit. It is a "pin" that fits the top of the adjuster and an open wrench to loosen and tighten the lock nut on the adjuster.

Engine noise

sounds like it could be 2 things. the valve tappets, meaning valves need adjusting and or loose cam chain which may need adjusting.
