Re: Strange Engine Sounds
Motor is just noisy and some are just louder than others. My L1 racebike engine sounds like its coming apart at idle and its stock with 7k miles on it. Friend has the same bike and its a racebike too but much quieter sounding at idle than mine. I don't worry to much about it. Ear plugs drown out most of the noise.
