Hi All,

Occasionally I can feel warm air coming from under the seat cowl.

Is that normal ?

Also I have read about the ticking sound . some suggest it is normal but not sure if it is or can be a sign of serious engine issue.

it has a ticking sound between 1-4kish mostly when idel . it may tick above that range but i can't hear it .
Could it be that it needs valve adjustment .

Thanks

i experience the same hot air and tick…..i bought a brand new left over 2012 r6 in april of this year 2014……its done it since the first ride with 2 miles on it and now with 1600 miles so i think it normal bro. I read somewhere that its the fuel injectors that make the ticking sound.

You're sitting on top of an engine, feeling warm air is normal.
