I just went for a short ride ( 20 min ) and noticed that my engine was ticking more than usual when I shut it down. I only have 3600 miles so the engine is tip top. I was trying to get my front wheel up a bit at the end of my ride so I was getting on and off the gas pretty hard. Is a small amount of ticking normal. BTW it is kind of cool today.

Probably normal. The quicker it cools, or the hotter the motor is, the more ticking you may hear.

Expansion and Contraction of different types of metals, heating and cooling at different rates, make the crackling sound. It's normal. Wait till it get REALLY hot!

If you keep your bike in your house you will find that it ticks continually. For some reason I think it's the disks expanding and contracting.

Wow Kommodo! You get to keep yours in the House! I wish my Wife was that understanding. Thanks for the replies. I was just making sure.
