I'm about to investigate a strange sound on my bike. It's a 'resonating' sound when accelerating, most noticeable if letting off the throttle after accelerating. When I first heard it I thought it sounded like the speedometer cable (but I take it there is no cable). It's a new bike with 1200KM on it. The dealer was no help when I asked at the first service. Is it likely that the speedo sensor needs greasing on a new bike or should I look elsewhere?The only sound I've ever heard described as a chirp was due to a dry speedo sensor on the left side of the front axle. Pulling it apart and greasing it quieted the noise.
33No,silly goose, it's from the back tire when you put all your weight on the handlebars and shift into second.
Both my current V-Strom and SV650s made the same artificial squeeling noise upon hard accelleration.The sound was almost electronic in nature...
I finally figured out it comes from the big 'S' on the side of the fairing.
