Ever since a Stage 2 upgrade in December I am getting a rather loud click noise coming from what seems to be the throttle body, just behind the air cleaner.
Maybe this is normal ? I never had the SE heavy breather on my bikes so maybe that click noise was always there but now its more obvious...

Its a one time click that happens as soon as I turn on the ignition...
Is it the fuel pump turning on ?

Any one has experienced this ?

thanks -

I have had bikes with low restriction air cleaners and the sound of the throttle plate was very loud, in my case it took a little getting used too. I am not sure if this is your issue but it could be.

Yes it is the fuel pump from what you just described and it is normal. It's amazing what we start hearing once we do mods.

either the fuel pump or the automatic compression releases. my acrs do a pretty loud click, while the fuel pump clicks then whirs.

Had the same thing when I added a tuner, freaked me out - finally figured out it was the ACR’s. I turned it off in the tuner settings (just to test, don’t leave it off) and it went away.
