    Default help with a noise

    On my Silencer with Fury XT cams, I developed a faint tick or click when I first start to draw, maybe within 4-5 inches of draw. Sounds like it is coming from the upper wheel area. Before I start to break the bow down to check it out I would like to know if anyone has had this, and areas to look at.

    I had the same issue with the top Nitro Cam on my Fire Cat 400. It drove me crazy. I changed out the drop, Roto Cups and finial it was the Cam . It would click right at half draw. My dealer called CS and they sent me a new Cam set and no more issue on that.

    Check all of your hardware and make sure everything is tight. I had something similar happen with my Cheetah and it turned out to be the guide rod screws were a little loose. I was convinced it was coming from the idler wheel or limb pocket.

    my rytera has the "click" sound when come to the very first draw of the day, and disappear for the following draw. and the "click" sound also drive me no way i wanna go. Lub, switch roto cup from top to bottom and bottom to top, still the same.

    if i were to hunt with this bow, and the very first draw, sure i will spook any big game animal.

    Remember when you were a kid with two tin cans and a string between them.?
    What you hear usually comes from the other end.

    I had this happen to me,, It was my top limb ,,I think it moves just a little as you draw back the first few times ..but then settles in place...Fix for me was lossen limb bolts as far as you can with out taking it apart . Then use a spray can with the little straw of teflon silicone and spray it under the top plastic washer in between it and your limb as best you can ...The smell should be gone by hunting season ...It worked for me ..hope that helps...
