Anybody put enough miles on an '06 to see if the ugly ticking might occur?

I just got my break-in service done and now I notice ticking when I get off of the throttle. This consistently happens when after I first take off and the bike has been sitting up over night. I am going to take it back to the dealer and see what the deal is.

Hey all im thinking of gettiing an 05 fjr with 12000 or so miles on it, after reading all of this about ticking im not sure if I should still by it or not, from what I have read if the bike doesent tick after a certain amout of miles I will be safe, is this right? So I guess the best thing for me to do is have them start the bike and listen for the tick, if theres no tick the bikes ok? is there anything else I need to pay close attention to before I buy a 05 fjr?

I'm wondering if there's any correlation between ticking and MotoMan style break in, or quick switch to synthetic oil?

I'm also still wondering what Yamaha is fixing. The sound clip I listened to sounded a lot like it could be resolved with cam chain tensioning.

Anyone who's had the warranty repair able to be specific about what was fixed?

I appreciate ionbeam's explanation in another thread that the tick is a valve guide wear issue. Thanks.

Dear Ticker victims,

Does anybody have a copy of these infamous files? The original links do not work anymore. If recovered, I could host these files at my place and post new links here.

Any pointers to alternative ticker recordings also appreciated!

Thanks,
Grommit
