gotta buzz

coming from the front. did some searching and someone mentioned loose exhaust manifold. i did get about 3/4 of a turn from each stud but that didnt fix the issue. read somewhere else that the timing chain could be rubbing. i want to pop off the valve cover but i cant seem to find a replacement gasket and i dont want to dig in till i have the parts to put it back together.

anyone know where i could grab one? and any other theories on the buzz?

01 tt600
13k miles

it kinda seems like it follows the rpms, but it also disappears and comes back while the rpms climb.

cant hear it at all at idle

Have you made a video of this issue? Post it on YouTube and link it here so we can hear the sound it will be easier to help you with a solution that way I believe

I think I found my noise. With the radiator cap off I squeezed my bottom rad hose and I hear a clicking. At first I thought it was my pump getting moved but the sound is coming from INSIDE the radiator. As far as I know there should be nothing INSIDE that should make a noise like that. Am I wrong? Here's a video with the sound

Is there any coolant in your bike?

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
