my engine ticks kinda under idle & louder when moving..is this valves? also, when its warmed up I give it stabs of throttle & it sputter & cuts out after a second...can this be other problems? theres no smoke or loss of power...if someone PM's me their phone number they can hear it over the phone

is it jetted? or is it stock? if its stock try cleaning your air filter. If its been jetted, its not correct.

i noticed mine does that when i stab the throttle quick and it cuts out. it was really bad with a k and n but i put the stock filter back in so it wouldnt do that as bad which it still does it alittle but i think thats because i cut the spark arrestor out.(what an idiot i am)

wow...thanks alot guys..i think i may be over reacting...heres the story..I am running the stock air filter & have always ruin the airbox but for awhile I had the spark arrestor off...now I have it back on & I notice the ticking..i think i may be being paranoid though..everything on this baby is stock except the mobile 1 red cap synthetic oil I am running & also the engine ice...so the tranny makes a little ticking noise...would it do this at idle & be little louder when going? i think im gonna have to take these metal things wrapped around my header off & see if that fixes it..i know it could be anything but thanks for helping me out

mine makes a little bit of noise at idle too... i thought that they all did. i have heard others ticking away also. my valve clearance is fine. i think rider is right... probably the tranny.

Ticking is definately the valve train not the transmission. Transmissions do not tick they clunk, and only under power not at idle. You problably have two issues at hand. Improper jetting, and bad valve clearance.

yah..i think I have a 25% chance they will fix it and a %50 chance they will fix it if i buy the parts & a %25 chance they dont do a thing...i dont think it can be that difficult to figure it out though
