So i purchased an 04 rxp. ..yea an 04, after joining this sight i feel like that was a mistake. Anyhow i was out riding with my brother the other evening and at wot for a mile or two ( felt funny so i stopped and pulled the seat). When i restarted it loud ticking!!.had to jump it just to get it to restart. Sick, i shut it off and towed it back. Pulled the valve cover today expecting dropped valve, they all appear to be intact. Scratching my head.noise sounds like its near the top of the motor and its not really "consistent" with the rpms. Its pretty random has stage 3 riva wheel, rpms a little low 7700 sc washers. Im lost, searched for a couple hrs and can't seem to find the same description anywhere. 130hrs on machine.
