Ticking/Clunking Noise
« on: October 30, 2018, 02:03:56 AM »
I purchased the bike with this noise and have had no luck with direction on where or what it is! It mostly sounds like it is on the right side of the bike (non-kick stand side)but is audible on both sides. I know that these bikes usually run louder mechanically cuz BMW  :008: but I haven't heard another R or RR with this much ticking. I did take out the cam chain tensioner which had some signs that it was messed with/replaced and it seems to be doing its job but I am no cam chain tensioner expert  :187: Any suggestions?? Here is a link to what is sounds like:

Thanks! I did see that forum. Nobody had any videos or sound clips of theirs so I couldn't compare either mine though  :155:

My '18 just has its Cam Shaft replaced, I don't have any audio of it idling.

Is that the clicking sound? Why only the cam shaft?

I did see that video of your bike somewhere and I dont believe that is the problem. It sounds more of a solid clunking/ticking. The sound is not as present when the revs increase but it's definitely still there. I ordered an APE manual cam chain tensioner. That's coming the 16th of November. I'll post a video after if it helps the sound.  :015:

This is exactly what mine's like. If it's the cam chain tensioner then that'll be a relief. Fingers crossed!
