cycling ticking noise
2016 KLR 650 with 980 miles.
I'm hearing a ticking like loose tappets, New to KLR, it may be normal I don't know.
At idle It goes "tick tick tick" quiet "tick tick tick quiet... repeatedly. Tick lasts for maybe 2-3 seconds at a time then quiet for about the same time. Seems mostly apparent once warmed or after I come to a stop like at a light or in traffic stopped.
It's not loud but it is noticable.
Fresh oil and filter has about 300 miles on it and oil level is near top of site glass.
Could this be chain tensioner needs adjusted, already? Or something else?
