more 1000R clicking sound

I've now about 500 miles on my bike, and the "clicking" sound is more frequent, beginning to bother me. Never have I heard such a noise on any of my other bikes in the present or in the past.

The clicking sound is much like the sound you hear when you are driving in your car, and your tire picks-up a rock, throws it into the wheel well and makes a loud 'TICK" or "CLICK" sound.... but this is no rock.... this sound is definitely coming from within the engine of my 1000R.

At first, I only heard the sound just after a downshift, now I hear the sound in other situations, goes like this:

1) Blip-Downshift, roll throttle slowly.... CLICK!

2) Roll throttle to about 4-5k RPM, decelerate... roll throttle slowly again .... CLICK! (this is when it happens the most now)

3) Up-shift, roll throttle... CLICK!

It's driving me nuts wondering what it is. What could it be? Does anyone know what I am talking about? Surely I am not imagining it.

I will be traveling for the next couple of weeks, so I will not be able to take my bike in for service until next month.

When I had my R1 it made a sound like that. the dealer couldn't figure out what it was.It sounded like a pebble in a cylinder or somethihg.

I did notice on my rides today that this bike does make a bit of noise, just not as you discribe. Mine is more like a zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz like a vibration. Maybe one of the Dzus fasteners are loose?

Brandon -- it really does feel like there is a pebble or something in the engine, hate it.

About the buzzing... mine has a buzz coming somewhere in the nose fairing, probably from the windscreen buzzing against the fairing, or if not the windscreen, then the headlight or perhaps the right sidemirror. I'm guessing it's the windscreen... I'm thinking when I have the time, I will put something there to make it shut up.

I would ignore the sound and ride the bike little bit harder. Sounds like intake popcorns

Yes, FSL ... in fact it does sound like exhaust popcorns, except that it comes from under the tank... I didn't know there is "intake" popcorns??!!!

I wonder how the valve clearances are? Have the dealer check it out for the first service since it is just about due.

I never thought about that, but it makes perfect sense!
When I put an air filter and velocity stacks on my R1 there was a bit of dirt in there and even a Bee.

Check it out Sig, that could be an easy fix!

It's the EBS valve under the tank, get your bike set up properly including a TPS reset, you will need to check if your dealer has the MV Agusta software to do this, i'm 90 odd% certain that is what you are hearing, my mates 1000S used to do it all the time when riding slowly in the smaller throttle openings.
