I was riding along slowly in first and noticed a clicking type noise in the engine or trans cover on the right side never heard it before and have reason to believe it just started doing it. It wont do it while idling and I cant get a video of it haha but the valves sound great engine runs perfect everything shifts fine. It needs a oil change I have 160 miles on the oil usually will change it around 100 miles but don't think that would be the issue. Any ideas???? Right side engine.jpg

that sounds like a really loose timing chain to me. i would change that out before it skips time and the valves slam into the piston.

man that sounds like a loose timing chain in that video also. on the fuji 500 engine the timing chain has always been a trouble area for me on every machine i found they are loose and should be replaced at about 100 hours. i have seen one stretch as soon as 50 hours.

i have owned 5 predators and replaced the timing chain in 4 of them. the 1st one i did not and had the valves slam into the piston.
