Brand new bike... valves tapping???
I just picked up my Versys today!!! Awesome bike so far!
Just a quick question for everyone... I have about 80 miles on it so far, and I'm of course sticking to the break in instructions... keeping her under 4K RPM for the first 500 miles, then no more than 6K RPM for another 500 miles.
My question is... is it normal to hear the the valves tapping this early? Is this normal during the break in period? It seems somewhat loud to me, but since it's a brand new bike, I'm thinking I may be worrying too much about it.
I want this bike to last me indefinitley, so if there's a problem, I need to take care of it now. I've had only one other brand new bike, and I never heard the valves until about 9K miles, which was when they were do to be inspected/adjusted anyway.
Any help is greatly appreciated! I can't wait to open up that throttle in a few hundred miles, and see what she can REALLY do!!!!
