Well at idle i hear a slight vibration, sum ppl said it souds a bit like chain slap, i retentioned my chain tension and still the same, i have nerf bars and im not sure if its those or not, but i am wondering if my valves would need to be adjusted, cuz i only hear it at idle, i touch the gas a bit and i cant hear it any more, bu the beat is iregualar so i cant see it being the valves, i will be double cheking but i am just wondering wat u guys think.

B) B) this maybe something or nothing, but when i was breaking it in , and useing honda oil. i noticed what you seem to be describeing.then i went to motuls semi syn and it seemed to calm down some. i now run mobil1 full syn and dont seem to have it at all. maybe it had to do with the oil, or maybe it was part of its breaking in. or maybe i just got used to it and dont really notice that much any more. but its cheep enough to change your oil to a high grade syn and try B) B) good luck
