I have a 2004 DL1000 with 42k km on it. I bought it used a week ago. It rides great. Gobs of power etc, but i notice some odd sounds from it at certain RPM's.
In first gear when i pull the throttle it kind of growls, then settles down to a normal engine sound. If i shift too soon, the same growl will occur in second gear until the engine RPMS get up past 2 or 3k.
Is this a normal sound for this bike?
The bike has a power commander on it. I was wondering if a mapping change might correct this? or maybe i just don't need to be worried about it?
Thanks for any tips.
