Re: My new XR6
The small ticking noise is very common in falcons. Its just your rockers/tapets. It can be caused by a few things. Wear in the rocker gear, could be in need of an oil change, or oil that has gunged up in the head due to poor maintenance in the past. Next time your doing an oil change, use Nulon oil flush to drain the old oil, then put in some nulon lifter free. If after 2000km or so and the noise hasn't quietened down at all, its most likely rocker wear. If its only a small noise I'd say it just needs a clean out next oil change. Its nothing to worry about really, unless its driving you mad.
