Thanks for the input. I followed Tim2Wheels on youtube which had the smooth side against engine. Initially I had the bossed side against engine and the noise I heard is what prompted me to watch install again. After the flip there was no noticeable change. Was hoping someone had same sort of tick. BTW, can only be heard when moving with clutch in, no throttle, coasting. Reading old thread I found this[QUOTE=Tom Schmitz;78998]tylerw -
There is sufficient adjustment at the back of the swing arm to allow a 16t sprocket to be installed.
How many miles are on your chain, and what general condition is it in?
Often, it is not prudent to install new sprockets with an old chain. As the chain wears it's pitch changes a wee bit, making the fit on a new sprocket (the old sprockets will be correspondingly worn) a bit off.
Probably what is causing the tick. Now should I be concerned with fit being a bit off? Just turned 3000 miles, about 60 of that is with 16T on.
