    I had it replaced today, the sound seems to be gone. Thinking back, this sound only appeared after a trip through some water as Bosvark a while ago with the Suzuki club.

    last update from my side... GV has done now 1500 km's since the fix and it's running well... no sound of valve noise or engine noise and so far I am happy and very lucky it's not more than it was... :-)

    Interesting, mine did the same with 50 000 km. I was told a small stone might have moved the belt forward?
    However I think the belt may not have been put back properly after the pulley fix was done.

    I did mine myself, and noticed that one side had already come off the belt, fortunately for me, it was on the side away from the engine, so didn't do any damage. I think that the belt should be changed more often, possibly every 75K. But, from now on I'm going to inspect it regularly, and at even the slightest sign of wear it's getting replaced.

    Exactly what happened to your GV? Engine damage?
