Valve adjustments on Kawasakis are never a waste.

yep same here seems to be the norm for the 10r some say it may be the chain tensioner right before it skips to the next setting. mine was doing it really bad and i just changed the oil and it got much better like half as loud. dont know exactly why but it helped. do a search here there are many many threads on this same thing

nos can do some damage if not used right. sounds like maybe a valve adjustment or ike i said the chain tensioner. does it kinda sound like a baseball card in the spoke of a kids bike? i would bring it in i had the same noise and they took care of it whatever that was. the noise that the oil made quite was a little different more like a metal sound

Ticking noise under load, not there when not under load at the same RPM?

Make sure the exhaust system is properly tightened against the cylinder head. Check that all the nuts are tight! An exhaust leak at this location will cause a noise under load that sounds like ticking.

Major power adders like NOS, as a rule, will reduce the longevity of the engine if they are used regularly. It certainly is possible to do lots of damage in a hurry.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

sounds like an exhaust leak..if you ride the bike right after you start it is it worse?? exhaust leaks seem to at least partially fix themselves as temps come up in the motor.

"Punctuation can be thought of as a sign that warns the reader that he or she is approaching a change in direction in a sentence. A road sign on a highway warns a motorist that the road ahead is not a straight, divided highway with one-way traffic but two lanes of traffic with a short curve. Similarly, punctuation in a sentence warns the reader that the flow of words ahead may shift in an unexpected direction. Thus punctuation guides the reader to avoid misreading just as a road sign warns the driver to avoid misdirection."
