Engine noise on start up
« on: June 13, 2013, 11:36:31 AM »
If the bike is not started for a couple of days there is quite a noisy rattle on start up for a second or so. I mentioned this to the shop mechanic and had it recorded on my maintenance notes. He wasn't worried and said that it was the hydraulic cam chain tensioner and they all do that? Is that correct, on other engines there are valves to stop the oil from draining completely into the sump so as to keep the oil in the line to the tensioner. Have other riders noticed this noise?


I am loving the trophy, it seems to be a great balance between sport and touring which is what I was hoping for. The only thing wrong so far has been a faulty battery.

I haven't really noticed any start-up noise that sounds out of place.

I've had exactly the same thing on my Explorer (identical engine) and the mechanic told me the very same thing. I'm no longer concerned  :028:

I get a rattle from the engine for about the first 10 minutes and then it disappears for the rest of the day. Used to drive me crazy at first. Now I just wait for it to go.

I haven't noticed any noise that I wouldn't expect on a triple
