anyone got a zx-6r?
Just got an 02 zx-6r a few days ago. I came frome a 95 zx-6e, and I had the old bike in to the dealership for a ticking noise, which I thought was the valves. They told me to save my money, the tranny makes a little ticking noise when riding.
I never expected to hear this on my new 02 zx-6r, but I hear the same ticking at speed. I'm still breaking in the engine, got about 200 miles on it and am being a little more agressive in this past 50 or so miles, shifting at 4 to 5 most of the time, sometimes up to 6, but not violently. I feel this is fine for a break-in. I would say the ticking is caused by being too hard on the engine as I am exceeding the recommended guidelines slightly, but it ticked the first time I rode it, when it had less than 1 mile. It's just a small tick that seems to be in the tranny as it doesn't happen while in neutral, and I don't believe it happens while stopped in gear. I don't really think anything is wrong with it, just didn't expect it to tick. Any advice would be appreciated.
