Well went for a short ride tonight after work and noticed this clicking when I went to pause my music at a light. It definitely just developed on this ride and I don't understand it... I have not exactly babied it but I have hardly ever taken past 8k and never to redline.

Any ideas? Glad I payed for a 4 year warranty...

Man... What a buzzkill. Can't believe this. Great way to spend my day off. So again, from my understanding, there is an updated chain tensioner and that is what needs to be replaced and installed?

Ok cool. Looks like I'm heading to ridenow on Sunday to drop it off because I can't even enjoy riding it right now because of the noise. Too bad their service department is closed until Tuesday every week.

Yessir. Down in good old Tucson. Definitely down to meet up too. Always good to ride with people and meet new faces.

Yep, I noticed it tonight for the first time at idle and then realized I was also getting it about 1/3 to 1/2 way through the rev range. I just hope it's not a lengthy fix because I have grown accustomed to being able to ride home after work and enjoy my purchase.

once they get the part it shouldnt take them more then a hour to put it on and if your worried about the bike and want to ride it you can it wont harm anything to ride it. or you can do that trick with the set screw

Yea I need to figure out the set screw trick I'm just concerned with how much to tighten it. It seems like there is no exact science to it and I would need to figure out the exact bolts to get.

There is another member on here he did A diy write up how to fix it urself.. I did it and it worked perfect.
The bolt head u see on the cam chain tensioner is actually a plug.. take it out and adjust the Allen set screw that's inside (4mm Allen if I remember right) 1/4turn tighter.. no more. And put a longer bolt in place of the plug (one that hits the Allen and keeps it from backing out) with a jam nut on it so it won't loosen as well

The new tensioners are on back order, expect a long delay.
I may be doing the bolt thing this weekend. The trick is to not over tighten the adjuster.

3mm Allen wrench for the adjuster.

With the bike idling, you will feel vibes coming through the adjuster, as you turn it, you will feel those vibes disappear pretty quickly. Lock it there with a finger tight set screw, the set screw will turn the adjuster, so only finger tight, then tighten the lock nut.

If after another ride, it still sounds a bit ticky, give it 1/8-1/4 turn more.
