engine problems

Ive noticed this recently, like in the past 2000 miles. If im cruising along at speeds faster than 40mph and i put in the clutch to coast or slow down, the bike will die if i let the revs drop all the way down. ive just been downshifting to compensate until i figure out what the problem is. i didnt want to pay a shop to diagnose the problem if i could get an answer on here.

i was thinking that this was a valve adjustment problem, because there is also a small unusual ticking sound at idle. if this is problem or if you know what the problem is, how much am i gonna be looking at to have this fixed?

thanks for your help

my guess would possibly be it needs a new cam chain tenssioner, but bring it by Motorcycles Unlimited and well take a look at it

Idle is o.k., I ike 1200 - 1300 on your bike though.
Check your air filter.
As far as the ticking sound, if it's only at idle I wouldn't worry much about it, the 636 engines are pretty noisy.
Give me a call if you have any other questions.

try to idle it up a little bit to see if it helps if not, you're gonna have to bring it into the shop. DIY can cost more if you don't know what you are doing.
