Odd ticking noise from my 4RT


Recommended Posts

I have a 2017 4Rt with about 60 hour on it.  At the end of a ride after making a two wheel landing (solid landing but no major crash or anything), the engine started making an odd ticking noise - sounded a bit like the kickstart was engaging.  After it cooled (next session), the sound had gone, so I rode an hour session with no noise.  Then after another 2 wheel landing  (hop from a 1 foot ledge), it started up again.  Loud at first then dies off.  After it cooled, sound gone.

Recently changed oil filter - maybe 2 hours ago.  Otherwise no works to speak of...

Anyone has any thoughts?

The fan had worn through the plastic casing and was "dinging" on the metal cable casing - hence the new noise.  Generally the "holder thing" by the tank that connects the throttle cable to the clutch cable seems a bit weak - its odd that the throttle cable is not held better lower down, but hey...
