    How about thunderbird's top end? My friend owns a thunderbird 350 and hasn't driven beyond 80kmph speed. Once on open road, when i drove at 90-100kmph speeds for few minutes, there was some tik - tik noise from engine which lasted for more than a week! What may be the issue?

    Top speed is 107-110km/h without any modifications.

    You might be talking about the catalyst sound which is normal.

    But it is hard to say exactly what might be the case. Next time it happens try to pin point the source of that sound.

    It's 120 km max... Stock TBTS.

    Does the sound appears after engine switch off or engine running???? Are talking about the "famous tik tik sound" of RE UCE tappet. The SOUND will be your travel companion..... 😜 😝 😛

    IIRC, fins, plz elaborate!!!!

    The "tik tik sound" is the "famous" Tappet sound. Which occurs during 30-40kmph or 80-90kmph. The sound of Automatic De-Compression occurring inside the new UCE (since 2010) engine. According to RE it's just NORMAL, NO HARM thing. As new UCE comes with hidrolic

    Yes I'm

    And brother it is not compulsory for you to be there, but if you are available then it would be great for me to have a fellow Thunderbird rider help me inspect the bike properly.

    @kush, Let me remind you, Shahila Expositions doesn't deliver bike on finance until the FULL amount is disbursed in its bank account. So make it SURE & move to the showroom, try to take the delivery during the day, avoid evening time. Best of luck.
