Adjusted the valves to spec today. Engine was at TDC on Compression stroke. Now when I first started while it was cold, there was a chirp sound when I let off the gas and went back to idle. Once in a while when I shut it off it did the same chirp. After the bike was warm, 5 mins of riding, the chirp sound went away. Washed the bike, started it back up, chirping again. What could this be? Too tight? Too loose? Should I readjust the valves again?

Any info would be great.
