Question What can it be?

Hello forum,

The engine in my DL1000 V-Strom 2008 who have done 48.000km=29.800 miles are making some weird, almost rustling noises when it approaches 3k rpm. I dont have to accelerate hard for this to happen, but with slight acceleration i can get by without the stange noise. I very recently changed oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs, cooling liquid, mounted a booster plug and had it in for valve adjustment, the sound is still there. The sound is clearly more present when going uphill, specially with two people on it, it kind of increases with more strain and work. I asked the workshop whom said it might be to the momentum, chain slack and sprocket (which is fine) and so and, like it could be several minor things that causes it, but my gut is not so sure, they may not have driven it enough to know what it is.

Any suggestions to this?
Thanks for answers.

Martin

Is this bike new to you? At that mileage it is in the "red zone" for needing a clutch basket changed out. Called clutch chudder, it is a vibration in the 2500-4000 rpm range felt on acceleration. There can be metallic noises at idle that are associated with the worn clutch basket internal parts. Not something that is going to fail on you. But something that can grossly effect how nice the bike is to ride under 4000 rpm. Even at higher rpms the engine can be rough from an imbalance due to the worn parts.

Try the Clutch Chudder Test to see if that makes a big difference.
