since everyone seems to be a smart ass. its not the timing chain. its the valve train. all R6's have it. its just part of the engine design. no need to even worry about it.

no problem. if and when the timing chain starts to make noise you will definately be able to tell the difference. usually its the chain adjuster that needs to be replaced.

LOL welcome to the R6MN. Typical yamaha engine noise, the only way to get rid of it is to buy a Honda. Soon that noise will be music to your ears.

Turn the ignition off:thumbup

If you don't hear it you might want to get worried, but my other solution is get the rrevs up and you cant hear it:thumbup

noiser than usual ....there will always be a tick there. I like it, it sounds like a well made watch. And its going to take a LOT of miles before youll need to replace the tensioner, most likely.
