New Sound

My new 900 custom at 1200kms has just developed a tick sound that occurs when I open the throttle and release it. It appears to be coming from below the forward part of fuel tank. It's something similar to a butterfly snapping on a carb. I just had my first oil change and check and the mechanic seemed to be unconcerned. But as it has just started, I wondered if perhaps someone else has experienced this. It is quite noticeable.

Thumbs up sound prolly not new

What you are hearing is the fuel injection system. It is quite normal...and the sound more than likely has always been there as I hear it on mine all the time. In short you have no worries with it!
