    I don't know as much about the sport quads as I do the utility quads, but I don't think a tick is normal. If it's a very, very low tick it might be the normal sound of the engine, but if it's a pretty loud tick, I doubt it's normal. A stretched timing chain can also "slap" and make a noise that sounds like valves ticking.

    If it's a tick, it's probably the valves then. It's not really that hard to adjust the valves. Just make sure you adjust them with the engine completely cold. If it still ticks after you adjust them properly, you could have worn rocker arms or a stretched timing chain.
