Is this normal?

RE: 2K6 DL 1000 w/ 600 miles

At 3-3300 rpm and under a minor load, like climbing a hill on a paved road and giving it some throttle to maintain speed, I am hearing a LOT of intake noise.

Ever listen to a small motor with no air cleaner on it? The rhythmic hollow "pop" sound when you gas it? Very similar.

I checked and the air cleaner is on the throttle bodies.

Once the motor gets above 33-3500 rpm, it goes away and doesn't return up to 6500 or so (as high as I've reved it so far).

This is the RPM the motor is at when in 6th gear at about 65 or so.

Is this normal?
