Questions about 2011 Vstrom wierd noise

966 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  water warrior
I am a new Vstrom owner and new to forums so I don't really know what I'm doing yet, but here goes. I have a new Vstrom that just turned over 300 miles. When it's cold it makes a makes a knock or maybe more of a rattle or clatter sound. When it warms up it goes away but being new to the bikes I thought I'd see if someone could tell me if this is typical or not.

Thanks

Mine's been doing that for close to 70,000 miles. It's commonly reported. Some shaft is probably growing when heated to eliminate end play.

Mine only stops making weird noises when I turn the key off.
That's because you have a pre 2007 model. Later bikes audibly adjust stepper motor positions after the key is off.
