    Default >>> Tappet noise in Deluxe

    AOA,

    I have a deluxe 2012, 1400km driven, the problem is that the tappet noise is more than normal, i got it adjusted two times, once from honda antenna dealer and the next time from a local honda mechanic, but the noise still exist.....

    the mechanics ofcourse say that this is genuine noise but after owning three 125s i do know what the normal noise level should be.

    when i went to the local mechanic initially he said that yes there is tappet noise but after adjusting the tapets when the noise remained he said that this is genuine noise.

    So What else could be the reason of the tappet noise apart from tapet adjustment???

    Thanks.

    Depends on the life of the engine.. If engine is new then probably the noise is from tappets.. Ask them to adjust it by guage..
