1st Quad and !st Honda. Have always road Harleys and needed a family machine.
I have a new 05 trx500fe. with about 200kms on it.
as i get over 80 km there is a sound like pinging or valve noise.
not just the normal ticking they all have.
i have only tried this once. must of the time spent riding with daughter
valves have not been adjusted
Thanks for any input.
is this normal? or is it valve float?
any input will be appreciated.

it sounds like you need to adjust your valves. its a simple process. toodeep has a link as a sticky on the how-to.
