2018 DL1K - Clutch out noise
ok... so 1700 miles in and something other than FI is beginning to bother me.
Frigging clutch out noise.. Anyone else hearing this? Don't get me wrong, all bikes do it, and I'm learned in many including this engine, but I expected this to be quieter for longer if that makes sense. Bout the same clutch out noise as my 76,000 miles SV1K. (Modified basket now obviously).
Am I just being paranoid...
On the positive... Was expecting crank slap IH Noises also by now, but seriously... "not a sausage". No sense of teh IH at all even when in hot traffic, hot day.. My SV hammers like a 3 ton steel bench press, and did since the day I bought it 5yrs and 55K miles ago. I've learned to ignore that and 'shame' into higher rpm idle when a few bikes next to me at the lights... : ).
