Default installed lloydz ATS and I think theres an issue

Ok fellas, I need some help. I was having issues with excessive popping and bike falling on its face. Brought into vic shop and they messed with mapping and still has issues, so they installed under warranty a lloydz advanced timing gear. I picked up bike and immediately noticed that the bike has a lot more pull, the popping has seemed to lessen and overall runs smoother. So wheres the problem??? Glad you asked! Im am getting an evident ticking type noise coming from the engine, very noticable at idle and under certain acceleration, that I dont recall being there before. Iz this a characteristic of this lloydz ATS kit or did they do something wrong. Other than a vic stage 1 trioval the bike is stock. Any help or thoughts is greatly appreciated.

Are you pinging? I would go with higher octane gas and see if that helps but most vics have a tick.

If it's doing it at idle, it's probably a normal sound. I can almost guarantee you that the Vic Shop wouldn't let a bike out that had an issue. It's valve clatter, it's an overhead valve engine. The cams are up top, not like a Harley, and there is no water jacket like water-cooled bikes to absorb the sound. It's probably normal. You are probably hearing it more now because the engine is running better.

If in doubt, post a short video of what you are talking about and post it.

Agreed. If it concerns you, ask them. They'll tell you straight up.

Surprised a dealer would go as far as to put a wheel in, I doubt the few around me would, hopefully they'll help you out...

I think he meant that he brought it to A Vic Shop, not THE Vic Shop!

That being said the timing wheel should not cause any noise. What a lot of people don't realize though is that it will lean a bike out. That's why you hear a bunch of people raving about improved mileage after the install. So take a bike that is super lean to begin with, then lean it out another 1/2 a point....things can happen.......

If in doubt, I can come listen. That would be a nice ride for me.

These engines have hydraulic lifters and the ticking sound could be them due to older oil that has lost enough viscosity and/or wrong oil weight. If it only does it at idle and not when traveling, I wouldn't worry about it, but if the oil is older, I'd change it.
