Hi, i just picked this bike up, almost for free. It needs a clutch and a tune up. BUT, the motor has a nice ticking sound. Any ideas what it could be? I hope its not one of the valves. The bike has been sitting in the previous owners backyard not covered for 7 months.

Also, anyone know if there is body paneling i can get from a newer bike that would fit on mine? Someone told me the 99r1 should fit. Anyone know?

Welcome to the Forum WRX :)

I'd change the oil 1st thing & then maybe have a look @ the valve clearances.....

It might be they just need adjusting........hopefully that's all? ;)

I'm not sure about r1 but i have a yzf750 and run the rear seat unit

of 01 r1 took very little sorting and i'd say the fairing wouldn't take

much but would mean a small amount of fabrication...

Also ticking if its been stood a good overall be a start the

valve clearances are not hard to do and have a look at

if its ticking on tickover and goes when it opened up it

may be cam chain related!!!
