Thisll be the first so i donno. Called dealer, said $250 plus parts and 2 weeks out. Wondering if this is my best bet if I'm thinking there will be a warranty issue. Hate to tear into this thing and find and issue and bolt it back together just to take it to the dealer. 2 weeks is kinda long tho...

so put a little video together. Someone already has an in depth 701 valve check video, i just put this together to add a couple tips that i feel like would have been helpful for me to know right out the gate. Also took a couple pictures how to get the feeler gauge on the hardest valve to check (since that plastic piece gets in the way) and how the marks should line up so you know you're at top dead center (TDC). Hope it helps you out.

On another note, what do you guys think about the decompression system? Too much play? Anyone know the spec for the bolts with the springs on them?

A lot of the noise comes from the cam chain being loose at idle (Hydraulic cam chain adjuster).
I put an after-market, manual cam chain adjuster in mine, and it quieted-down a lot !

Yes mostly idle, wonder if that's it. Any way to check?

Sweet video!!

Do you know what the spec range is for the valves? I just checked the manual and it only gives 1 number , not a range that is acceptable

should be a grey sticker on your frame right by the valve cover on the left hand side of your bike that has the spec range on it. If yours does not I can take a picture of it later, lmk. You can see the sticker right at the beginning of my video, .10mm-.15mm for the intake and .20mm-.25mm for the exhaust.

what year 701 do you have? old 690 motor or new one? are they interchangeable as far as the cam chain adjuster?

maybe after owning many LC4s, i'm immune to the noise. Here's what my 2019 SMCR sounds like bone stock.

I did a hot shutdown and hot re-start, this usually will cause the OEM CCT to click for a few seconds, but it doesn't.

I don't care how it sounds, as long as it runs good. I am in love with the quick shifter btw. If the 2020 701 gets that, I'm getting that bike for sure.
