    Lack of power , tapping noise in the top end of the motor , but don't confuse this with piston slop or a cam chain slapping .

    Hard to start due to loss of compression exhaust valves tightening up will hold vavlves open to long. Intake seem to get loose an make a tapping sound. This is what happen in my case.

    How many miles are on yoru bike ? Have they ever been adjusted ?
    As far as not cranking Every bike with carbs acts differently to the change in weather temps . Mine is cold natured it don't like to crank cold either .
    Have you ever put new plugs in it ? The Pinging noise what grade of fuel are you running in it ? Are you sure its Pinging or is it pistion slop ?

    stay with the cheap stuff on fuel . change the plugs there cheap and can make a big difference if there need .
    1700 miles and never adjusted , I think I would check them . Get a service manual and make sure ......
    YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS !!!!!!!  Making them too tight or too loose can cause big motor problems !!!!!!!

    I can't count how many times I've heard someone say "Yes I checked them and they are not loose"   You are right aaroncs, tight valves are more a problem then loose ones. A little loose is always better. Always adjust to the high side of the specs. As long as they are not so loose the tap they'll make more power on the loose side. Also, Long duration cams will by their nature have a slap to them .

    Just because it don't smoke don't mean its not piston slap , or cam chains . Some tapping is norm . there not roller motors .

    how do i check for piston slap or cam chains. after a ride this weekend I am planning on finding that tap, it is driving me crazy. Even if it takes a new motor.
