so i did my starter clutch and now im running yamalube 10w-40. now i notice a tick sounds like valves to me. is it i should run a heavier oil?
i just got the bike so not sure what he had in it for oil.

and i have a small leak coming out of the shiftier seal how do you fix this? it seems to be pulled out in the towards the back of the bike.... should i just push it back in?

On the 1100 you need to hear the valves ticking. If you don't they are probably adjusted to tight. I run 10W40 in the spring and change over to 20W50 for the summer. This heavier grade oil helps in abating the ticking noise but you still hear it a bit. As for the shifter seal, you could try to push it back in but be prepared to change it if it starts leaking more. Mine weeps a bit but until it leaks I'll wait to change it out in the fall before I store the bike for the winter.
