valve noise / 1500
bike sat for a week. upon startup, a new engine noise that sounded
kinda like valves. Noise went away in 3 or 4 mins. We rode 75 miles
and stopped for a 1/2 hour. Upon startup ticky/tick is back but went away in a couple mins. and we rode home. After sitting for 3 days,
I started bike today, noise was there but DID NOT go away.
Oil is fresh GN-4 10/40 and on the upper mark, filter is fresh OEM Honda. Bike is a 98 SE,new to me 2 years now. Less than 5000
miles on the bike
Noise seems to be on the left side. Using a wooden dowl, it is not coming from alternator. Help Please.
