Engine "whining" noise normal?
Hi Fellow Troopers,
Over the last couple rides on my new DL1000, I've noticed a couple things about the bike and wondering if they are normal:
1) When I first start the motor on a cold day (45 degrees), I've noticed that the left exhaust expells "smoke" while the right exhaust doesn't. I don't think it's really smoke but probably condensation. And the left pipe exhaust is warm while the right is cool. Normal? Also water drips from the bottom of the left side pipe a little.
2) The engine makes a "whining" noise. Not a continuous whine, but more of a pulsing whine which is in conjunction with the RPMs. This is very hard to describe. Instead of a long "weeeeeeeeeeeeeee" it's more of a "wee wee wee wee". The sounds is there whether idling or reving. Normal?
