    ticking noise again! Empty ticking noise again!

    OK, some of you may remember last winter I discovered the chip off the stator side of the crank shaft, so I made a new key for it and a new key for the valve chain gear, put JB weld in the hole, put it back together, the bike was never quieter. Well the quiet part did not last, I'm back to tick ticking, a party who heard it thought a cam chain rattle, I changed the stator last weed , and maybe I should have put it together so fast, appears to be slop to the balancer gear, I think I can take that gear off with out pulling the fly wheel, guess I will take the bike apart, AGAIN, I'm really getting pretty use to it now, anyone have any other ideas?

    The bike still runs like a scared rabbit but the noise is not normal.

    Good luck on that Don , it pays to be thorough on htis type of a repair . I got sloppy on the last stator I dd and it has a leak at the wires . I'm going to get to do it again too!
