    Hi Jonny,
    From the video mine sounds the same. Just sounds like normal tappet noise on tick over to me.
    I suspect itís there hot and cold but your sensitive to it now.
    There have been threads about similar noises.

    Re: Ticking noise

    Mines 2yrs old 12k and itís always sounded like it. Never had any issues and sounds just like others Iíve heard.
    To be honest every bike Iíve had including jap bikes always have a bit of tappet noise.
    If your really worried take it to a dealer.
    As to the camshafts Iím sure some one will correct me but I think that was gen 1 and a recall.

    Yes all fails were from new bikes indeed , mine has 25000, what can make them fail any ideia ? I had the top cover removed at a dealer recently to check cilindre pressure all was good.

    Took it to 2 dealers both said its normal noise most probably vibration from front exaust buterfly. How could i wire it open and see if noise stops ?

    My 2015 was quite noisy on tick over,
    But I wouldnít worry about it, I did 15k in 3 years and had no problems at all
