Tenere engine issue or mental problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

 

Had my T7 sins last year, but still haven't done more than 800km because of the virus.

 

I am hearing allot of chatter/loud ticking during load/acc. and when releasing the power without load I hear ringing, from the rear.

Is this normal or is my mind playing tricks on me, perhaps because i'm going to take it on a long trip.

 

I have tried recording it, but it's hard to catch it, I hear it easy with helmet on.

 

Thanks

Is your chain the correct tension as that willl chatter on the chain rail

Mind tricks.
Engine makes a nice metallic noise on throttle like an old 911 Porsche which people loved.

Check engine level.

Engine  is strong

Skid plates cause all kinds of engine noise, so does the plugged up muffler.  I usually line the inside of my skidplates with foam, and that deadens a lot of the ticking noises.

The ticking sound under power could just be the injectors firing. This is the consensus on the MT-07.
The ringing from the back could just be the chain tensioner. Because of the long suspension the bike has 2 chain rollers to limit the chains movement. I can certainly hear more sounds from the chain than my previous bikes.

Properly all normal

Take the spark arrestor out of your exhaust and you won't hear anymore clicking. You won't hear much anything as it really opens the exhaust up. This is easy on USA and Canadian bikes, four screws and four nuts. Easy to put back on too, for the trails.
