If it is the tensioner...On my 636 you could get it into 6th gear, shut it off. Then push it backwards a couple feet. That would reset the cam chain tensioner.

the good ole "gixxer tick" its just the bike being cold blooded and cam chain tensioner. Always a good idea to let the bike warm up for a few mins before riding out.

im interested in this trick, i'd like to know if it is cross bike as well, as my sv650 has a noisy cam chain tensioner as well, the valvetrain itself is known to be rather noisy, but if this works, then it'd be a blessing...

if you're referring the the lifters in the valves uptop in the head, then you'll want those serviced, when you bike has the mileage high enough for its first or subsequent valve check. (consult your maintenance schedule or find one online)

but many have already spoken about the cam chain tensioner issue, which my suzuki sv650 suffers from as well. Although I find that my cam chain tensioner itself is not broken per se, its just "late to the game" and usually tensions the cam chain back up around 6 grand instead of around 3-4 which is where i'd prefer it to.

That was a known problem on the '06 GSXR 750.... Suzuki dealer replaced the part for free on my nephews '06 GSXR 750.... So I'd get with a dealer. His bike may have been under warranty at the time.

yeah if theres a warranty replacement on the bike i'd definitely look into getting it checked out, if the shop wont honor the warranty replacement hopefully they'll still provide the part and you can get it installed if it is that big of an issue.

(for instance ford's malfunctioning cruise control units that caught the trucks on fire heh) but yours sounds more benign than that
