    Annoying sound

    Hi, I have had this "issue" since the very first day, probably nothing to worry about but annoying. It's a slight "ticking" sound. It ticks faster when speed goes up but disappears when I pull the clutch. The drive shaft is replaced and the sound was there before and still is. So most likely something with the clutch. Normal behavior or should I worry. It's not a sound that sounds that something is about to break. Earplugs solves the issue, but reminds me on short rides, annoying as hell.

    If pulling clutch IN.. makes sound disappear...I would certainly be looking at basket and clutch plates

    A COMMON sound on many Honda's I have owned...but I never had any issues...just live with it....

    Only an examination will  you confirm if it is the clutch...or other though!!!!  :084:
    I choose to ride a motorcycle .... as I enjoy it , and it makes ME happy !!!!!

    Hi drm4rtin, how old and how many miles on the clock is your bike.
    does it still make ticking noise when stationary, if it does then i would have thought you could rule out the shaft drive query.
    Good luck friend.  :028:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    10000 miles (17000 kms). Its a 2012. No ticking while stationary. The drive shaft is replaced.
