I Ride: 13 hyperstrada, montesa trials, selling Duc 900 SS CR
I can hear a metal to metal "click" a few times in Groove's video. I have never heard that from my own HS. I still wonder what the outcome was with the noise from Jokeshopbeard's bike. From the new video, I suspect this is not a dangerous problem, but it would be great to figure out what the cause is. The guys that said don't blip are a joke.... I would love to get a technical answer from Ducati or a qualified Ducati mechanic....

My problem still persists and I have now noticed white smoke coming out of the exhaust in sync with these metal knocking sounds. It's a very pronounced 'knock' as opposed to a 'click' as it may appear in the video.

I will try to get a better video up if possible, but I have just installed a new SC Project Oval high mount, so it may be harder to record the knock.

If that white smoke smells sweet that's coolant. What does your oil look like?
