Weird vibrating noise from engine
I just recently bought my first every bike, a 2008 DL1000, and I am loving it. This weekend I did the first maintenance at 1000km. With that, I changed the oil and filter and replaced it with the Suzuki dino 10W40 and a Suzuki filter. I took it out for a spin yesterday and noticed a strange vibrating noise coming from the motor. When I got it home, I put my ear down by the motor a give it a few revs. It definitely sounds like it is coming from the block (or that area). It occurs when in gear or not and through a wide range of RPM.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Or is it something normal? Should I have used a different oil &/or filter, different viscosity maybe. Any help you can provide me with will be greatly appreciated as I am new to the game... This is also my first post. Thanks.
