Default Re: First ride of the year

Yup... definitely investigate... some ticking is normal but if the piston is hitting the spark plug or the head, that's not good. some setups will barely clear eachother when the engine is cold, but will make contact once warmed up, the engine will still run too so it's doing damage if it's hitting the head. Look at the piston crown and hopefully there's no tell tale silver ring on top of the piston or that nice clean spot right in the middle...
Better safe than sorry.
