Valve Train Noise Revisited

I reset the valve lash AGAIN on my hotcam stage 2...... This time I set them tight @ .013 and .018mm and the noise is better but still seems quite loud to me (when its hot). I guess I should just let this issue go but I would feel better if I knew that other people hear this same noise on their hotcam equipt bikes.

I thought the valve lash was supposed to be. 006 on the intake and .008 on the exhaust?

after setting your lash rotate the motor over slowly(by hand) use the next size up on the feeler gauge set and check the lash in several different spots of the lobe base,,, if u find a spot where the gauge goes in then readjust at that location

Here is a clip of a hot start with the tighter lash settings...... If you listen close you can hear the noise
