My bike was sitting for about 3 months while I was getting the whole trans issue sorted out. I picked the bike up and now when the bike is cold and I start it up, it has horrible loud valve tick. It sounds like just one valve is doing it and after the engine warms up it goes away. I'm hoping after I ride it a little bit it will go away. I've had cars do this after they have sat awhile and it goes away with a few days use.

Should I be worried? It never did this before the engine was pulled to replace 2 shift forks, shift drum and 1 gear. I know we have noisy engines, but this is LOUD.

Sounds like the cam chain tensioner needs to be 'clicked' a notch. Do a search for the thread.
