I'm new so here it goes.I just bought my new 05 Foreman 500ES ( big time upgrade from my 01 250 Recon) and noticed after only 13 hours on the engine it is noisy when hot( rattly , ticking etc ). dealer recommends valve adjust at 100 hours. What do ya think?? My 250 was somewhat noisy. As a Honda Tech I know some noises are considered normal but i have nothing to campare it with, i work on cars. Anyone elses noisy?

Mine makes a bit of noise when idling (somewhat like a tick) I have not adjusted the valves yet at around 35 hrs. I will adjust them at 100 hrs.


On a side note, Did you add that reflector to the front of your bike? or did it come with it.

Reflector

Yes it came with one yellow on each corner and two red on each corner in the back from factory, it's part of Transport Canada Regulations. There just held on with a small nut. Thanks for the input on the noise i will mention it when i drop it off for the 20hr check. :thumbup:
