    2007 VX 110 Tapping Noise

    Recently purchased and sat up for a few years has only had 1 owner. It only has 29hrs on it. Trying to figure out this tick noise? Doesn’t sound like anything from the bottom end. “Sounds like a lifter issue”
    Please help
    Tried to upload a video of it but can’t.

    Sounds like something in the valve train, broken valve spring, broken retainer. Pull the valve cover to check it out some more. Reconnect the ignition to the spark plugs and start the engine to pinpoint the noise.

    I did not change them out yet. It runs pretty smooth even with the tapping noise. I can’t really tell if it coming from the valve train or the timing chain area. My thought was the tensioner being it sat for so long, but I can’t really pin point the sound exactly yet. I’ll pull the valve cover this weekend
