Tapping noise on start up!
I have just had my '10 St R, 1 year service, the bike has only done 3000 miles. When I took the bike from the garage last week everything was running fine, no strange noises on cold start up.
I started it up last night and this morning an at cold start up there is a really loud tapping noise coming from the engine. I am aware that its most probably the tappets making this noise, the engine is warm theres no tapping.
Not sure if this is anything but for some time, I have had 2 header bolts missing, they must have worked their way loose from when the garage fitting my low boy, these are now replaced.
So, my question. Is this normal? Will the noise go or just get worse? Should I just get the bike down to the garage quick smart.
