The adjusting mechanism has play\wobble. It rocks and taps the cover. From my video after it warms up you can tell its louder by the adjuster.Heres a video to show what I mean.If the link works this time.
https://youtu.be/lInb6t_wllE[/QUOTE] I would replace the adjuster.

Thanks xena. Ive been searchin all over youtube trying to find a close up warmed up and idling. Theyre all too far away to get a good ear of it. So I readjusted the chain this time I checked every few inches and got it just a 1/16th less than 1/2 inch at the tightest spot. Its been raining on and off all day so ive only ridden it 10 miles to warm up. But I can tell its better than before. Its a tad louder than xena's but not much. I think its fine ill keep an ear on it. If it stays where its at ill be happy. Thanks everyone

No prob. Thought I’d mention, I rode about 60 miles before the video.
Last week changed my fluid to Formula+ and filled it with
28 ounces.

I use formula + also but I put the whole quart in. Do you notice a difference putting in less?

28 ounces.
