    R6 Tick

    Hey, my R6 has a ticking/timming chain slapping noise at idle. If you rev it up around 1500rpm it goes away. I'm positive it's the timming chain tensioner. Has any one else had this problem?

    My R6 sometimes makes a strange ticking noise as soon as I turn on the engine cut-off to run while the powers on...
    I kind of dismissed it out of my head though till you mentioned this, actually I kind of thought it sounded like relays clicking or aircraft igniters kinda hahaha
    Well, I can't be of any help but now I wanna know the answer too

    R6's tick a little Ive heard... but at the same time, I hear some of the R6's timming chain tensioner's go faulty. Go get it checked out.. not worth finding out it was the latter of the 2.

    You might need a valve adjustment. Check your owners manual for scheduled interval.

    The Yamaha shop manual states the valves should be checked and adjusted every 42,000km. Seems a little to long though. I haven't checked mine yet and I have 20,000k's on it. I will adjust the valves in the spring though.

    Most sport bikes from Yamahas have noisey valve trains, it not a problem.

    Yamaha ticking is normal.

    Totally normal, I had my R6 brand new until 12,000 k. It ticked the whole time. My R1 ticks as well, it's only got 9,000k.

    Put a pipe on the bike and you don't notice it.

    I've heard from rumor that the R6's valves dont really ever become out of adjustment. I think the quote I heard was somthing along the lines of, "R6 valve adjustments? heh, I've checked them, they never seem to be out of spec".

    From the R6 message board.
