Tick sound

I have an 08 versys with 37k kms on it. It's making a weird ticking sound from the front end when I apply the throttle at a moderate amount. I can hear it at low and high speeds. It goes away when I release the throttle and I cannot hear it if i'm really coming onto the throttle. It makes the noise in all gears.

I hear that this could be the valves, but it could be something else as well. If it is the valves, what's the harm in continuing to ride for the rest of the season? Which is a few weeks.

Any help is very much appreciated!

Hmm, sounds more like an exhaust leak to me. Check the nuts on your exhaust pipes.

Might want to have a Dr. do that for you
