So you get the noise when the bike is in gear slowing down? Have you checked the drive chain tension? They can rattle as you slow down a lot more than when you accelerate (accelerating the top run is under tension, decelerating the bottom run is, and clutch pulled in I guess they pretty much balance out). Other than that it could be something beginning to wear in the clutch (goes away when you apply pressure to pull the clutch in, masked by revs as you accelerate?)
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

Timing chain?

Quite possibly if it is coming from the RH side of the engine.  been discussed many times before if you do a search.  It is more prevalent when the engine is cold and you soon learn to forget about it.  Not a problem unless the noise becomes overpowering - unlikely.

My bike is a 2010 with around 20000km on it. The noise started out very faint and you heard it at a steady cruise. Under load the noise went away but over time it got louder to the point that you could hear it if you were on another bike beside me on the highway. The dealer has been comparing it to other biffers that come into the shop and say that all of them have a bit of a tick to them but mine is in a league of it`s own.

Hey Mike,
I dropped my 2010 cbf1000 at the dealership in October of last year to fix what sounds like the same noise. They just pulled the engine this week to disassemble it and are no closer to finding the problem. The dealer reshimed the valves twice and replaced the timing chain tensioner to no avail. Then called me to say that they were giving up and that maybe Honda Canada could do something for me. The bike was still under warranty.
After several conversations with Customer Service the dealer was forced to continue working on the bike and now it is in pieces on a work bench. If they ever figure it out I will let you know.
Sorry, ....I am doing a double take on this and I know it was posted a little while back.....BUT you took your bike in in October and they are NOW pulling the engine out???? You have been without a bike for 8 months or so?????
I might be mad or even slightly insane....but I LOVE my CBF1000GT

You read it right. It sat all winter and when they finally pulled it into the shop and ralized this wasn't going to be a simple fix they wanted me to take it home. Did I mention that it was still under warranty.
I have a Goldwing and a cb900f so I'm not without a ride but I do miss my Biffer.

So because you have more than one motorcycle they have the right to treat you so badly? Screw that.

i am normally calm and reasonably patient....but I am glad that this isn't my bike or that this dealer is nowhere near me. And this is under warranty :087: :087: :087: :087:
How do you do it???? ZI would have gone ballstic by now and who knows what the new shiny bikes in their showroom would look like by now :005: :005:

I wonder what happened to the Car Doctor :112: :112:
