07 GSXR750 noise...ticking in the heads

Hey everyone... just got a GSXR750 a few weeks ago and am hearing some weird noise coming from the heads. I dont remember it when i bought the bike, but the second day i had it is when i realized the noise. is this normal? what kind of lifters are in these motors? thanks,
troy moore

Gixxers have noisy motors. Especially when you first fire em up. I wouldnt worry about it. Just continue driving it like you stole it and change the oil when she needs it.

If it's really bothering you...take it back to the dealer and let them listen to it. They should know right away if it's right or not.

Its the CCT and this problem can be come serious and no the GSXR motor should be noisy ( I have owned LOTS of gsxrs) Get this problem looked asap.

Seems like some conflicting info, but to be safe (since it's new) I'd just take it in. You have nothing to lose.

yea, i took it in, but the mechanics are saying its supposed to do that...i think they were just trying to get my bike out of there.... i took it in for the 600 mile service and they didnt do anything, oil chain, adjust anything, fix my clutch problem... by the way, this was at Malcom Smith Motorsports if u know where that is. thanks though

here's a another forum identifying cam chain tensioner (CCT) noise. It's for honda's but should be universal.

Two months ago, I replaced the CCT in my 2002 F4i. A process I would never want to repeat. Afterwards, I read in a Kawaski forum how to fine adjust the Kawi cam chain tensioner, effectively stopping this god-awful noise in their bikes. There is a very good possibility that it will work for Honda CCTs.

1. Find a street, parking lot, or otherwise vacant place with a long incline.
2. Face downhill, with the bike in 6th.
3. Engine is off.
4. Let out the clutch and slowly (real slow) walk the bike forward, working against the compression.
5. If the incline is steep, modulate the brake. If there is no incline, have a friend push you.
6. Slow. Turtle slow.
7. Do this so that you feel at least 10 compression strokes (5 revolutions of the crank).
8. Doing more strokes is better.
9. Start engine as normal and check for noise.
10. Repeat if necessary.

(i wouldn't think gixxer's had problems with CCT)
