I have an 05 r6 with around 2,300 miles. Yoshimura rs-3 slip on is the only mod. Just recently, i have noticed this ticking/knocking noise at idle. I can only hear it when im in neutral with the clutch not engaged, but once i pull the clutch in, the sound goes away. I have no idea what it could be, anyone have any ideas?? Thanks in advance

I thought this knock was normal for our R6's. I was told the R6's have a very noisy tranny.

Yeah I just got this knocking going on too, but more pronounced in neutral (not with the clutch in but when I actually come to a stop and put it in neutral). I was planning to do some investigation tomorrow, but I think I'll start tonight. I'll post if I find the problem .. if it is a "problem" might just be paranoia.

Welcome to the wonderful world of riding a Yamaha.

It's called "the yami tick" Everyone's got it. Get used to it. Learn to Love it. It'll never go away.

I've had the tick for about 24,000 miles... It'll never change, and I don't know that I could ever ride a bike again without it.

Yeah my 08 has a tick that drove me nuts when I first bought the bike, but now I don't notice it as bad.

Dont worry as you ride it more youll hear more motor noise and youll always think its going to die... (Mechanic point of view hahaha) Its normal, no worries....

The ticking noise is created by the EXUP Valve if I'm not mistaken.

Even on the older bikes? What is the exup valve exactly? I hear a lot about it lately....
