Changed timing belts, adjusted valves, replaced radiator hoses, rebuilt rear master cylinder...got rear brakes back, timing seems good, small leak from top radiator hose and loud a$$ ticking from right side. Screw it, I'm going to bed and will take another look tomorrow.

That's a lot of work for one day! I did no work whatsoever today, instead I went out riding. :)

Rechecked the timing belt and valve clearances, everything appears fine. Still have a loud (to me) ticking from the #1 cylinder area. Varies with RPM. Revs out good, noise doesn't get louder, just faster. I can't figure it out. I tried the poor boy stethoscope method (placing a socket extension to your ear and then contacting the engine :lol: )and the noise is not any worse around any valve area. The noise only occurs when the bike is running, turning it over with the starter doesn't spin it fast enough, I suppose.

Thank God for the webbernet. Since I did not become omniscient overnight, I googled and found this thread http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=16402&forum_id=1&highlight=fuel+pump+noise decided to recheck the timing belts and it turns out the right bank was off, 1 tooth :roll: Noise is gone and after finding my water leak I may go for a midnight ride!

That's good news - and good news that one tooth off won't cause damage, only make some noise. Now go ride!
