Valves are tricky beasts, a motor with 120k can be within spec while a motor with 12k can be way off. If you hear ticking from the valve train that usually indicates they are slightly out of spec. Mine were way out of spec and very loud, but since the rebuild theyve been perfectly silent.

Tarzan - Were you launching in second on the bike? I noticed the front end didnt lift at all, and it seemed like way too long of a gear to be in first. Looked good though

my motor had a tad bit of tapping coming from the valves, but it's quiet IMO. The purge solenoid is just as loud as the "ticking"

I dunno... for the money I dunno if it's worth all the hassle. If I knew they needed adjusting I'd be inclined to do so.

My car was driven in bumper to bump traffic for it's first 8 years/81000kms... so that could screw the valves up a bit I guess, right??


See my proble.. when its valves/lifters were screwed u heard them banging around, in comparison to my CL now it's like 4-5times quieter.

Car pulls very hard tho, and is very quiet all things considered... so I dunno how i'd tell if i need an adjustment

thats not my bike, its my buddies. 05 R1 w/ full exhaust, power comm. and sprockets. i have another vid of him coming up on the launch. he ran a 9.96 when it was stock, but he said the gearing made it too short and it was impossible to keep the front down now w/o an extended swing arm. hes an amazing rider, .003-.005 r/t non-stop, but idk what he was launching at.

It really isnt based on driving conditions. The valves can be a random issue. One car can be driven just like yours for 8 years with noisy valves, while another may not. If you have any mechanic friends, ask them to listen to them. Dont ask the service tech at a dealer, theyre just trying to sell you shit.

Cool. He did launch it pretty well in that vid. I think I only heard 3 gear changes, so I was assuming he launched in second especially with how long he held onto that gear.

I just finished most of my camera mount. I need to do a few little things to it before its ready for action. Hopefully by the end of the week.

i was actually looking at the magnflows for a while but after hearing them on youtube and a few other places...not for me... as civic said too loud
although might be interesting to hear magnaflows with stock tips..
