I have a small – massive problem??
I have a VF 1000 ff & I brought it last year & have just completed a light tarting up that involved, Some touching up of the paint work & changing the oil, plus, filter & also changing to waterless cooling & fitting a replacement radiator.
Now here’s the thing.
I was running the bike up like I do every 3 weeks or so the engine had been running for around 15 minutes when it stopped ( I had turned the fuel off to test the fuel switch ).
However when the bike was restarted there was a loud “ticking” similar to a very loud tappet that wasn`t apparent before coming from the rear cylinder head.
I am not much of a mechanic but willing to try & get in there.
