I did a quick search of the pre evo forum and didn't find much. My '81 FXS started to make a tapping noise on my way to work Saturday. I was on the freeway so the engine was at pretty high revs. I sure it's a new noise although they are all new to me right now. It seems to be coming from the front cylinder. What should I be looking for as a cause and fix?

Thanks,
Joel

Ok I hope ever body will excuse the new guy, I have good mechanical knowledge but this is the first bike and every now and the I'll probably come looking for assurance.

Anyhow I changed oil and cleaned a filthy tappet screen that Icouldn't see light of day through and sure enough my sound seams to have subsided.
