That "ticking" noise

I remember reading a question from a forum member regarding a "ticking" noise he heard at idle.
My LT developed that same? noise a few days ago,
at first I thought it was an injector but then it actually became a little more "pronounced"
Today while I had her up on the lift I found the "problem"
all of my exhaust manifold bolts were "loose"
I got a "full turn" out of the first one I tried,
that's when I reached for the torque wrench.
That little adjustment made quite a difference, now she purrs like a kitten

This post scared me. My other bike is an FJR although Yamaha has been covering the "tick" for free.
