Valvetrain Noise
« on: May 02, 2010, 05:56:45 AM »
    I am in INDIA and I have a C5 that has done about 2000 KM. I am running the factory accessory up swept silencer. I have been getting a lot of noise from the valve train. Comments on this forum and some others seemed to indicate that some amount of noise is normal for the hydraulic lifters and that this would reduce as the bike clocked up some miles. I am due to take my bike out on a long road trip in an area without much service help ( Ladhak , Kashmir) in a month or so and was wondering if anyone here has a suggestion as to what the cause of the clatter may be. Any pointers with regard to parts that need to be checked up or adjustments to be made will be highly appreciated.
