So I bought a new Maverick earlier this year and loved the thing. Found a used outlander, 2011 with only 1200 miles. 800R XTP. Was assured the noise I was hearing was because it needed a valve adjustment, easy enough. Long story short, did valve adjustment, set to .006 exhaust and .004 intake. Noise never went away. I have a video on YouTube, I will post the link. I am being told by the guy who sold it to me that it is not piston slap because it runs great, not burning oil, starts right up and has good compression. I have researched the board thoroughly and I greatly appreciate you all! I have not taken the CVT cover off yet, all the stinkin inserts are stripped. And, the noise does not go away when machine is revved, which many say will happen when it is a primary clutch issue (definitely could be wrong here). But had it to a shop and the guy used the screwdriver to the ear trick and said he thought the rear valve was making noise... anyways, let me know if you have any thoughts. The video makes it sound WAY worse than it is in person, but maybe that is a good thing for the sake of troubleshooting. At the :25 point in the video I rev and the sound is TOO MUCH!
