Recommended Posts

Hello to you all,
 
First of all sorry for my poor english
 
I bought an Mt 07 two months ago... I already have almost 500 km. Few days ago i noticed a strange noise from my engine!
 
I visited my dealer and told me that the noise is normal, but i wasn't convinced!
 
Pls take a look at the video

Cheers

Normal.
 
There are some other threads about this same concern: http://fz07.org/thread/2485/engine-ticking-noise
 
I think the stock exhaust is just so quiet, you end up hearing all manner of mechanical noise from the engine. The general consensus is that it's nothing to worry about.

I will give it a nice wash on Saturday:)
Maybe this jiggling is on my mind :(
 
But I have the impression that I didn't hear that when I first bought it

You might have been so excited about getting the bike,that over heard that sound but it's perfectly normal.An after market muffler will make that sound non existent.

If ya really want to be freaked out by noises, put a long screw driver end against the cylinder head somewhere and push yer ear against the handle.
 
All those sewing machine noises are perfectly normal.
 
Washing is OK. just be careful where you spray water avoiding electricals and bearings . It's best to use a fine mist

Didn't Willie Nelson do a song, "You Were Jiggling On My Mind".

Hello again!
Yesterday i visited my dealer! He made a test ride of my bike for around 20 minutes. He noticed this strange sound coming from the front of my bike! This sound is noticeable when the temp is about 80-85 degrees celcius and the machine working at the 3000-3500 rpm! Its like a tik tik tik coming from the front! He told me that he has no idea from where this sound is coming from!
