Proud owner of a new Bolt R-Spec and love this bike.

As most of you know it's platform is the proven 950.

I've noticed a ticking noise coming from the engine and not sure if it should woory me or not?

Symptoms:
1. Not at idle
2. Not at low RPM's
3. Starts at half throttle and is more pronounced when engine is fully warmed up.

Sound: Ticking and as throttle opens becomes more pronounced. Can be heard over windnoise and muffler.

Any ideas? Valve adjustment? Lifters? :confused:

I'm not qualified to wrench the bike myself and not sure if this is a common issue with 950's?

Would appreciate any and all advice.

It's where he keeps all of his things, he gets a lot of compliments on that, plus it's not a man purse - it's called a satchel.

Indiana Jones wears one.

Can't say I'll be carrying the man purse or satchel...

I might pop into dealership next week and see what they say. I know some Yamahas have the Yammy Tic...

Very nice bikes. I was considering trading mine in on one.

Satchel, Man Bag, Murse, I'm just a bag whore. Oh, and if you've got any room leftover in your Man Bag, can I tuck a couple things in there? Miescha? Anyone? *batting my eyelashes*
