I know most of us have the yami-tick. I was curious to see what rpm ranges the tick is most constant at. Does your tick dissipate when you get up to a certain range or does your tick stay loud all the way through.

...I was riding at like 8k yesterday and my tick sounded SO loud. Do i possibly have a different problem? Seems loud at all ranges.

mines pretty ornery at about 4k... after (under EXTREME acceleration) i start getting tunnel vision/hearing and don't care what it sounds like, only what it feels like. sorry... that's my own fault for not paying attention to the thing that's carrying my life on it's back.

first off snowbizx, bastard, second on my 2000 the tick was pretty loud on yamalube but then i swtiched to mobile 1 20w-50 synthetic and it got a lot quieter or i just got used to it, on my 2006 it just has a little tick not near as loud as the 2000.

one option try synthetic or just wear earplugs or a helmet or both

WAHHHHH!! MY BIKE TICKS..... what a bunch of babies.

HAHAHA jk

Hey, You guys do know that you do have 8 FRIGGIN INJECTORS 6 inches from your head right???? everyone do me a favor and buy a automotive stethoscope, and lift your fuel tank, start your engine and put it on the injector.....LISTEN. tick tick tick. Listen to an other fuel injected engine, tick tick tick. Not saying this is all of your problems, but my 2008 r6 with 3500 miles does it. Sounds fine to me.

OHH yeah, that whole thing was with full sarcasm, but that is my finding.
