I also noticed ticking noise on my '14 s1000r. It starts to tick at 3200 RPM and it's most noticable at 3500 RPM, while after 5000 RPM I can't hear it at all. About a year ago cam chain and cam chain tensioner (one with black top plug) were replaced (3000km ago) at BMW dealership. I was yesterday again in the dealership and they said its gonna cost around 350 just to strip down the engine and check cam shafts if they are worn out or anything. Also I have checked engine oil through the little windows and I cant see any aluminum flakes flowing around. I'm thinking to sell the bike and be done with this stress.

Ticking noise around 3/4000 rpm is normal.

My bike does ticking noises from 2000 to 4000 rpm since 0Km.
All the S1000R and RR I have riden do these "strange" engine noises.

It does not however make any noise when starting up, like people with a defective tensor ear.

I dunno, I've found since day one that my bike makes a tonne of clacking and clicking noises all over the rev range, it has the loudest valve-train I've heard outside of old diesel engines.

It sounds normal to me but if you cant live with noises dont trade it on a Ducati with a dry clutch  :001:

That's definately not the plan  :008: Actually I'm planning to get new MT-09. The reason why I'm getting rid of the S1KR is the fact that it's not made for city riding at all (90% of my riding). It gets quite warm and fuel economy is just bad (in the city). And also the possibilty that engine can just stop working is just another minus.

I agree that if youre constantly in the city you need very smooth fuelling. I had an aprilia RSV4 that hated slow running. Now that was a bike that loved a drink  :169:
