I just did my initial oil change on my bike yesterday at 750km. I know it says to wait 1000, but I'm going on a large trip and wanted to get it done before so that I'm not well over when I finally do it. I used the OEM Suzuki filter and Suzuki 10W-40 motor oil as the owner manual specifies (conventional, because it's still breaking in). Since I did the oil change yesterday I went for a boot and the bike has developed a knock when sitting at idle. Can't quite tell if it's bottom or top end but I've double checked and the oil level is perfect on the full line. Has anyone else ever dealt with this issue? Thanks in advance.

Does it go away when you pull the clutch lever in?

I think all stroms are known for some "idle hammer" to an extent, supposedly it's harmless.

To find out for sure, go ahead and put 5,000km on the bike. If it doesn't blow up, you're probably fine.

No, clutch in or out doesn't make a difference to the sound. That's my though though, drive it and see what happens.
