That's what I was telling someone a while back. Anyone with a Ticker will KNOW. There's no question.

I don't agree that "anyone with a ticker will KNOW." This one is loud, unmistakable. And I know the story of pulling up next to a bike on the street with your earplugs in and still hearing it. But you can have a ticker without it being this obvious. When you do, you're still down on power, and it's still leaking oil into your exhuast system, ruining your cat and fouling your mufflers.

My understanding was that the blow by didn't happen until the latest stages (where the volume increased too).

Dunno, It was just a Holy Crap that is loud, gotta see if the camera can pick it up video, and then back to work.

You mean it's gonna get worse! dribble.gif

There was about 10K on the oil at the time the video was taken. It didn't use a drop.

I stopped to get an oil change in Des Moines on the way home and it seem's that the bike had developed an exhaust leak. I couldn't pinpoint the leak but I'm pretty sure that was making it sound worse than it is.

How's the saying go? Ride it like you stole it? Poor thing wink.gif

When Ric-in-Sac's bike went in for repair, one of the diagnoses was it was maybe an exhaust leak, but no, it was bad valve guides making the racket. I'm sure yours is the same . sad.gif

Damn... Ever think about changing it? blink.gif

What do you use and what interval have you been changing it?

The Rally was 7k miles, his ride home was close to 2k mile !

"Exhaust leak" is what every uninformed Yamaha dealer says when they first hear that noise. AND, IIRC, fjrvtx1300s reported oil usage waaaay into his tick-saga. I seem to remember someone reporting oil film out the back of their exhaust. Thankfully, now that FJR owners on the websites are educated in the matter, most are getting the repair done before the damage gets that far.

Hmmmm, 8 to go...
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

They are taking it in on Tuesday to do a valve clearance inspection. The shop owner was concerned that it had so many miles (39K) on it. The Yamaha Rep gave instructions to do the inspection though. That was the first step last time. They kept the bike and the Rep brought up a new head. Had a closet full of'em apparently.

I suspect it will be the same deal this time. I'm a year out of warranty, and I think the head was replaced just over 12 month's ago, so I'm pleased they are even looking at it for me.

It smelled like oil for the first time this morning after a restart. Warm oil sitting on top of the cylinder I'm sure.

I would have liked to take care of it sooner but I was out riding. smile.gif Actually, I new it was still a ticker after 4K on the new head. It's got 25K on it now. I think I just wanted to see how bad it would get. It's just unridable now, so I'm looking to get it fixed.

and BTW, I'm normally religious about the maint. I didn't have a lot of time during the rally to take care of it like I usually do. It was treat just to be able to brush my teeth a couple of times over the 7 days.
