Default Tic Tic.....

Lifter noise. My bike does make the lifter noise on start up. I changed the oil a couple weeks ago. Ran with the same oil I have been using(Amsoil 10w-40 motorcycle oil). Glad to report the lifter noise in the morning stops much sooner or does not haven it now as often. So just like some cars/trucks I have owned the good OLD oil seems to help make the lifters a little noisier in my opinion. Now I know I have no real scientific proof just my old ears, and they are not that good ,ha,ha. Anyhow it did make a difference to me. Here are some other facts. Yes I did go a little over 5000 miles on that oil, maybe to 5200 miles, and yes it is a 2011 and it is suppose to be changed at 5000 miles. So next time I may just go 4000 miles. I may also see if I notice at what mileage on the oil that the lifter noise seems to get worse again, time will tell. Merrry to Christmas to all! On keep the oil alright!

I find mine stops ticking WAY sooner if I take it OFF the sidestand and hold it centered while I start it.....just an observation I had with both my Vision and XC.
