    Loud ticking noise from engine

    i have a 2014 tw200 with 100 miles on it, last night while riding it, a loud clicking noise started coming from the engine, and it seemed to be running rough, any ideas as to what it could be?

    Probably a valve adjustment lock nut came off. Open up the covers and hope that the nut is still in there instead of down in the engine.

    Is it coming from around the valve covers? If so, try adjusting your valve clearance and/or cam chain tension. My 87 makes ticking sound some but my valve clearance is on the higher end.

    With 100 miles on it, take back to the dealer and make them fix it.
