    So before my service the bike wasn't making any ticking sounds. After the service the bike had a very loud ticking sound in idle. Could be either valve timing that's different, cam chain needs tightening/replacement or is it completely fine? Sounds fine when revving it or riding it around.

    What do you guys think? Thanks
