Default The tapping noise I've been chasing- video

.....been chasing this thing like a neurotic for a couple years. Everyone's been a help, and I'm leaning towards "it's normal". BUT.....I finally was able to capture the sound pretty clearly (every other time I've tried, the engine just drowned it out in terms of the video camera). this time, with a new camera, I hear at as plain as day.

Only opens the youtube sign up page for me.

Can you open the vid yourself then copy the address bar link and paste it here in the thread?

Not all of us are signed up for youtube [I'm signed up for so many forums and stuff already- I can't keep track of them all, and the damned passwords ].

Here it is -- just put the string of characters after v= in a youtube tag pair like so, only use square brackets instead of parentheses:

Thanks for getting it up so we can all see/hear it GM.

Max, I put the headphones on to listen to it without background noises from around the house.

It almost sounds like tappet noise to me- but Greywolf or Blacklab would probably be the two most qualified to offer a more accurate suggestion [no offence meant to the other mechanically skilled members here].

Tappets would normally tap all the time if they were out of adjustment though, so maybe cam chain.

You are not hearing things though so your sanity is no longer in question.

If it were my bike I would not be in a panic about it but would still be concerned it may become a problem in time.

Given the reliability of these engines through the years and in the different models [SV650-Gladdius- etc.] it may just be a "normal" noise most of us don't hear during the course of our riding.

At least now you have posted up something that people can give feedback on.

Default ok - I aint no expert

if its excess valve shim gap you may be getting a dynamic bounce effect casuing the mechancial noise to show up at some rpms and not at other rpms

Where you are holding the camera is very close to where the intake for the air box resides. I think what you may be hearing is the intake noise as each cylinder draws its air. It sounds just like my DL1000.

Yeah that is not a normal noise and I dont think I could just don the ear plugs and live with it. There is something a miss in there.

I distinctly hear the suspect noise in that video. It's very familiar, as I've listened to it for over 50,000 miles on my bike.
