    I've had a slight tick in my head for a while now, from everyone I talk to they say its a normal Honda thing. Its nothing major, and is not noticeable once the RPMs get off idle, but I was wondering if this was simply an out of adjustment valve or is it something a little harder to get rid of? i.e. if I go through the head and reset all the clearances, will the tick go away?

    Adjust your valves and it should take care of it.

    DOHC motors in general have a "tick" in the head, that comes from the cams, rockers, valves all being on top, and close, so you can hear it easier. If you really want you can have an adjustment to the valves, but I doubt it will go away.

    Ok, thats what I've been hearing. I'll adjust them regardless just because of the mileage on the engine.

    Regular maintenance is ALWAYS a good idea.
