Alright, so I brought the Ninja in today for the first service (1000 km).. :emot-bang: Anyways, after I picked up the bike and paid the hefty fee of $180 bucks, I took it out on my favorite run. I noticed it wasn't running like it was before I brought it in, it had some weird ticking noise to it now.. I took it home and decided to check the oil level... Sure enough it was completely filling the sight glass. I drained 24 ounces of oil out of it before it was down below the max fill line. I decided I was okay with where it was on the sight glass and took it out for a ride again, sure enough the ticking sound is still there. It seems to only happen in 3rd+ but it could be happening in 1st and 2nd just can't hear it because of the louder revs. I notice when I let off the throttle the ticking stops, and if I do some neutral revs it doesn't make the ticking sound. I thought it might be the chain so I cleaned it up and re greased it, but still a ticking sound.. Any ideas before I take it back to the dealer?
