I guess there's a valve adjustment in my future. I have AX school in early Feb so going to try and get it done before then. Thanks.
Then it is time for a valve adjustment, spark plugs, rotor and cap (check and clean at least). If yours is a Carrera, then maybe you can only get it to a certain point, the noise will always be there if the valve guides are worn.
