    I can hear a ticking noise coming from my right cam area (I think) when I cock the bow...the PSE troubleshooting guide says, "pockets or pivots may need to be greased, especially betwwen the pivots and the riser."

    What the heck is a pocket or pivot???

    The pocket is where the limb is fastened to the bow.
    Mine has developed the same sound in the right side and I have only shot it about 100 times.
    I can not tell if it is coming from the cam or ithe pocket area.
    Either way I called PSE for a RA number to let them check it out.
    I think It's better to be safe than sorry.
    I hope the repairs do not take too long as hunting season starts next weekend.

    I've got a hunting trip planned this weekend, so last night I took some spray lithium grease, and sprayed the area you mentioned, as well as the area I assumed to be the "pivots"....noise is gone! I may have PSE look at it when I get back, but for now it should get me through the weekend.

    Check your limbs very carefully. I got the "ticking" three cocking sequenses before I realized the right top limb was delaminating.
