Exactly @SimonUK. I can clearly distinguish the "normal cam sound" from a "faulty cam sound" For me itwas a case of actually hearing both and realizing that sumthing is actually wrong based on the different sounds. Im just glad its sorted and hope the problem doesnt stick its nasty neck out again. Gonna take her out on Sunday for a nice stretch. The Tech said cos of the work that was done, valve clearence doesnt ha e to be done again on the next 20k service.  :152:

Great result - and I have to agree I find this engine to be fair bit "noisier" than that of my old K7 GSX-R1000 that had 80k km on the clock  :008:

The thing I don't like about the myriad of mechanical noises, is that subconsciously it feels like it won't last as long as something that makes less mechanical noise.
Time will tell, I guess
I got nothing.....
