There seem to be widely differing opinions on this. The valvetrain in my 600 never made any noise with the stock cam and the valves have never been out of spec since I bought it in '04. The Hot Cam calls for slightly wider clearances and results in a little more "sewing machine" sound, but it's not something I have to make myself ignore. IMO, the valves should not make a lot of noise.

Something else that comes to mind is a noisy automatic compression release.

Another source of noise in this engine is the cam chain. The tensioner is spring loaded and held from rebounding back by a one-way clutch. This item can go afoul and sound a lot like valvetrain noise. Mine is most noticeable when cold. This is on the list to get replaced when the top end eventually comes off.

That's interesting, I've always thought my NX650 and both XR650Ls had noisy valves. At first I check and re-checked them to make sure everything was okay. I eventually got used to the sound.

Describing it as "sewing machine" like is very accurate.

The early dommies in europa had disk brakes. Dunno if you can use those parts?



Can you make a 12V power socket on the dommi to power a GPS or phone?

Swingarm, rear wheel hub + spokes, brake disk, brake caliper, caliper mount, hose, pump, remote reservoir, brake pedal. I could help you there, but overseas shipping is really out of the question - financially-wise.

Sure. Just get yourself one and mount it. How is another question. Need any assistance?
