    Default unknown tickling noise

    First at all, please excuse my bad language, i am german..

    My Spyder STS S SE5 is running fine, Oil is ok an changing gears is working fine.

    Since my last Oilchange i hear sometimes a tickling noise coming around the area from the hydraulic shifting on the left side.
    When i change gear the sound will be stopped and will repeat a few kilometers later - in different gear..

    Is anybody able to help..??

    Can you describe the ticking noise? Like the ticking of a clock? Faster? Slower? Is the noise the same all the time or does it change with engine speed or road speed?

    Default Welcome, welcome 👍

    Welcome to this most informative site... Your english is better than some americans here but as to the ticking you might start with the linkage...all the rods and the pivot arms that are involved with the shifting. Check all the parts you re-assembled after the oil change see if you missed any connection.

    The ticking sounds always the same, like a clock, not louder but in different intervals.

    Hmm
    oil change

    Maybe either the panel (lower left front "quick remove" panel) isn't quite on, or one of the doohickey quick-grab-things has lost a washer which is rattling around inside, or something similar ??

    I am a great believer in trying easy/simple solutions first...

    I have the same bike, but havenít heard such a noise.

    You can hear this while riding even w your helmet on, so pretty loud?
