I just got a 2000 r6 with 19000 miles one it. The bike has been abused pretty good (broken plastics, tweaked forks), but the price was right. My question is why is it making this sound. When I start the bike, there is a ticking sound toward the top of the motor. It continues as it warms up and I can still hear it after riding it for an hour. I had an 04 r6 and did not hear this at all, so I dont think it is the yamaha tick. If it is the timing chain tensioner, how much does that usually cost to fix. Also, the is a lot of vibration when riding it. Any suggestions?
