Hi, I'm quite a newbie of S4 revo. I've some question to ask and hope that you can share your opinion, especially other owner of Revo. Million thanks.

 

My bike got some noticeable noise from the engine when RPM above 3.5k, noise freq gets higher when engine has higher rev. When doing 2nd free EO change at Boon Siew, I did mention this issue to the counter person in charge, they say they will look into it. However, when I get the bike after the service, it seems like they forgot about this! o_O (May be it is due to the free service). Therefore I ask the master again when he return the key back to me.

 

The master said, that's the noise comes from the VTEC mechanism, it's normal... There is nothing required for tuning. If tuned to no sound, there will no loss of power!

 

However, from my understanding is: VTEC only about to turned ON after 6K+ rpm. Noise should only about to introduce within these uncertain period, isn't it? So, I suspect that's same valve clearance issue (from this thread called "got tick tick sound from engine area.."@http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=216061)... But my Revo is less than 3 months old (

 

Besides, the noise get less noticable after quite a long run. However, it's still noticable. This worries me as I think S4 is a good engine it shouldn't have this kind of issue, especially the bike is still considered new.

 

So, here I would like to ask, is there any other Revo riders experience the same issue? Comments please. :dot:

 

Other than this, I also found Revo (Fue Injection) engine is MUCH MUCH noiser than previous model (Non Fuel Injection types). I believe this will be the same for others Revo. However, I'm wondering whether there is a way to tune Revo as silence as Spec III? I believe this will be quite impossible, am I right?

nope.. haven yet.. calling them later.. sianz..

 

Erm... Their service seems to be not very good. My bike got some noticeable noise from the engine when RPM above 3.5k, noise freq gets higher when engine has higher rev. When doing 2nd free EO change at Boon Siew, I did mention this issue to the counter person in charge, they say they will look into it. However, when I get the bike, it seems like they forgot about this! :sian: Therefore I ask again the master when he return the key back to me. He just explained theory behind to me, issue is not yet solved.

 

If you think you can help me, please look at following thread:

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=220412

 

If they take such a long time to solve the problem, I might think it twice and twice again before sending my bike to them for the issue mentioned in the thread.... :dozed:

 

I hate to take SBS buses, especially at Tuas area, it's so not convenient!!! Can ask for a replacement bike during the service period? :angel:

Bro,you might mistake the tick2 sound for the injectors. My dad rides a revo and first day he got the bike i start to hear the tick2 sound. Trace the sound and it was from the injectors. Just like Yamaha FZ1 loud ticking injectors too.

Thanks for the feedback... Yes, I also noticed that the injection produces quite a loud sound. That's why I mentioned that Revo is noisier compare to Spec III. Too bad that it means it's impossible to tune FI (Revo) as silence as Carb one (i.e. Spec III).

 

However, the noise I hear from the engine is another noise. May be the description "tick" is not accurate.:( It's some kind of sound of metal hitting or rubbing against another. Just like chain sliding on the metal surface. Will this the cause of timing chain need to be tensioned?

 

This is weird that the sound get less after warm-up but still can be heard (a little bit) by my ear.... :faint:

i always need to rev while starting my engine.. a simple press of the button wont do MOST of the time.. is it a sign that the starter carbon is failing me?

there some possible reason behind it......1st that i can tink off maybe there is a puncture that u really didnt notice where the nail or sharp object is totally embedded in the tire,2nd is that maybe ur tire valve stem is spoil,saying it might be crack ......so i guess u try to change the valve stem(the place where u pump in the air) first and change it to aluminium 90 degrees valve stems......3rd maybe ur tire also got crack........thats all that i can tink off.....

Dun play play with puncture. Get a mech to check it out. Very dangerous when you are travelling at high speed.

 

IF need to change, just change the tire to get ease of mind. DO NOT DELAY.

it wont harm ur bike.

even stock endcan will also back fire.

morning cold start back fire is quite common leh.

air/fuel tuning should be done after u install an aftermarket exhaust like Yoshi.

 

hope my above info helps... :dot:
