This engine was known to have a ticking noise that some have reported. Apparently it even happened when new, with very few miles on it. Not sure if this was normal or not but it was enough to cause concern. Normal or not, is this something we should expect this time around on the GSX-S1000 or has it been addressed already?

I sure hope that it doesn't happen with the GSX S1000. You'd think that if the problem was reported already on a different model that they would have taken care of it before they release the GSX S1000.

Ultimately that's what people would want them to do but for all we know maybe that would hold them back too much and a situation where they rather release it knowing this could happen and fix it later.

I hope so, instead of putting it off.

Looking at how competitive the industry is, it's not something they can afford, something that should influence their efforts on fixing it.

My TLR was the same, a ticking noise. I was told its normal. I had it for six years. Never a problem. Shove a race exhaust on, it drones the noise out. Lol.

My GSX S1000F with 40 miles on it makes a ticking noise that changes with engine speed. Kinda sounds like a timing chain but who knows. I'm just gonna ride it and see what happens if anything but it is loud and you can hear it at all times.

mines has about 1300 miles on it and did tick quite noticeably upto about 800 miles. It still ticks now but is a lot less noticeable and doesnt concern me anymore.

My brand new Yamaha sounded like a tractor and the clutch noise was awful so this is a lot less annoying.

I just assume all bikes do it to some extent and that the cam chain is either just noisy or adjusting a **** of a lot.

Is it the cam chain tensioner making the "ticking" noise? My FZ-09 had the tick and the cam chain tensioner was replaced under warranty. But as blueglue, mentioned the Yamaha makes some interesting noises. loud clutch in 3rd/6th gear.

What sound are we looking for?. Mine sounds like a typical motorcycle.

Most of my heavy duty mechanic stuff, on four strokes, was based on a 2006 crf 250f Honda. A bike that had very sketchy reliability, and went through a lot of parts. In many ways, that engine is like taking a bandsaw to a gsxs 1000 and saving one cylinder.

Honestly, the problems with this motor happened when it stopped ticking. That lack of ticking happened when the valves went to zero and it became tough to start. The thing is , this happened without a few miles and about 45 minutes. Not 800 miles.

In the old days, much of this sound could not be heard. I think you hear much more in modern times due to the thin castings and thin covers. This sucks, for the noise factor, but it also allows this bike to weigh 475lbs and not 575.

My bike with 180 miles on it has the cold in the morning ticking right side of motor near cam chain tensioner location. I assume that is what it is. Goes away once engine is warmed up. Engine runs fine. My experience with Suzuki's is this is the cam chain tensioner. Some are more vocal than others. Last loud one I had was a 2005 GSX-R750 which had it replaced twice and it still rattled/ticked when cold. My 2011 GSX-R1000 racebike when it sits for a long time it'll rattle pretty good from the cam chain tensioner location. It has been hammered on since day one with 4k race miles on the clock and 6k street miles before that.
