Hey guys im new to the site and would really appreciate some assistance =) , i bought a VN Calais for $300 and i fixed everything it needed for the roadworthy for around $200 its a fair score it has 205,000 on the clock and everything works well . The paint & interior are also in really good condition , however i have recently encountered a problem i was driving home from work the other night when as i got closer to home and turned down my sound system i noticed a ticking coming from the motor its pretty loud & it wasn't there when i went to work .

The strange thing is u can only hear it when i get the car over 2k Revs when on idle if u lift the bonnet there is a slight tick from one of the injectors althou i know this is common in VN's could anyone give me any idea's on what it could be thanx =) ( Lifters Maybe ? )

Your tick could be exhaust gasket of some kind,but your internal knock sounds like excessive freeplay in your bottom end bearings.

Depends what sort of tick, if its a strong dull it could be internal friction or something with slack. If its a metallic clicking/rattly its normally the lifters, some engine oil flush, new oil then lifter free tuneup does the trick to sort it out. Could also be an exhaust leak, check the gasket and tension of the bolts of the cat and headers.
 

Cheers,

I would definately be more worried about trying to diagnose your internal knock before i wasted any money on that motor,is the knock only there first start in the morning,has the knock got any louder since your last post?

get it checked by a mechanic that knows what hes listening for, my moneys on that its not as serious as it sounds to you, ive had a vp come in that sounded like it had a terrible knock and everyone thought the motor was stuffed with a crank bearing, turned out to be the power steering pump ! dumb ****s !
 

Cheers,
