    Ticking at 3k RPM

    Took my bike out for a short ride, and noticed as the RPMs come up past 3k I hear a light ticking noise. I've found a bunch of stuff about general valve train noise but am worried this could be the injectors. How can I tell?

    Injectors ticking is normal, and your hydraulic valve train on the XB should be quiet.

    What muffler do you have?

    And old mechanics trick is to put a screwdriver to your ear (the handle end....) and put the tip on where you think the noise is.

    Thanks, I've read that if there is something wrong with the injectors it should be pretty obvious, so maybe I'm overthinking things. I have a jardine/K&N combo with buelltooth and tune and it seems pretty spot on.
