Nope. Not that I can tell anyway. I did rev the bike up sitting at a light to 2,000 rpm's and just above. The clicking was still audible but seemed to be lessened.


Update on the speedo healer. I am back to a 2mph differential. So for example, a reading of 70 shows to be 68 on GPS. This is basically where I was at the other day when I felt I could get it closer and failed miserably. LOL

If my weekend plans don't go awry I am going to pull the plastics and stethoscope everything to try and narrow down the location of the noise. Hopefully it's something easy to repair.

Sounds like its not engine or trans related then. Something loose on the bike, I’d guess.

Rode in from Hunt to Humble looping up and around Houston to avoid traffic and hit some fun roads. Was 4 days out in the Hill Country riding. Ice and freezing temps in the morning but gone shortly after the sun came out and warmed up in the 60's each day. Beautiful riding and nearly nobody out. Sunday was spent in and around the sisters. Saw only 6 bikes that whole day.

Is the clicking maybe a misfire? Cold plug that needs to be warmed up?

This lady pulled out in front of me. I was doing 50 but was a good 75 yards away so I was able to stop easily. But she just sat there in my path until I waved my arms like wtf are you doing?

So instead of quickly getting out of the way, this dumbass just sits like a deer in headlights. Im sure if it was a new rider he/she wouldve tasted concrete because of this moron

Nope. Doesn't make the noise when cold.
I spent the morning pulling the plastics and tank so I could stethoscope the thing while running. I found the noise is coming from the top of the head just under the valve cover. So valves or stretched timing chain? I dunno, but I do know that I have been away from mechanic work long enough that I don't want to pull the top end myself.

Maybe I should ride it til it breaks and then shove a 300 engine in it. Lol

First time I rode the VFR to work.

Seems like everyone has accepted the 290 traffic patterns. Traffic seems a bit more calm with less aggression.

Still a strange phenomenon how 8 minutes disappear from the commute time.

Mine is typically a 20 minute drop in commute time. In my truck it was always 45 minutes minimum to go 13 miles. It's usually only 25 minutes on the bike.
Then factor in the fuel savings. 50 bucks a week to drive the truck vs. 5 dollars a week to ride the bike.

I dunno about that....I think it has more to do with people being off for the holidays. Plenty of still traveling on 290. Wish I could have enjoyed a ride into today, twas beautiful...site visits with contractors in the field will have to suffice.

Perhaps, Im on 290 between 5:45a to 6ish. Then leave back home between 2p to 3:30p.
Mornings I have a slight slowdown around the hospital curve then it opens up once people dive into the HOV.
Amazes me how different the 2p traffic is compared to the 3p. Gets much more aggressive. The Jones and Huffmiester entrances get a bit congested.

Another fine ride this morning. Crossing fingers the rain n holds off tomorrow.

Riding yesterday sucked; today was much nicer. On a side note, can anyone recommend a heated, water-proof winter glove from experience?

Found that mist you were referring to. Lucky for me I was in the company truck.
