Hey guys do your 500s have a tick at higher rpms.? I keep hearing a noise similar to like a lifter ticking or valve in mine. Not sure if it's normal or not. I've never rode a newer one until I got mine. Lol. 2015 foreman 500es.

Oil is good. Haven't adjusted the valves. May do that soon. And never been overheated.

I didn't have a tick in my 2015 foreman until I adjusted the valve clearance last week at 210 miles. I set clearance according to spec (.006 intake and .009 exhaust), and now it does make a ticking noise that is quite loud, although the noise is present at all rpms, not just at high rpm like you stated. I don't think I can accept it this way. I plan on resetting clearance to .003 intake and .006 exhaust. I wish they would switch to hydraulic lifters on these motors. It seems like it would be a pretty easy change to make.

I would first adjust the valves and report back.

PS. don't forget to adjust them on the COMPRESSION stroke.
