Whining from engine on the motorways
« on: 18 May 2017, 04:47:30 PM »
As above ive noticed a high pitched whining sound on the mororway (not really around town) in time with the engine speed, it shuts off if i chop the throttle or pull the clutch in? I have recently put the baffle back in the end can so im hoping its just normal engine noise that im not used to hearing as apose to gearbox or Camchain 😬

If it's not doing it around town it's probably nothing to worry about most likely a different exhaust note,myself I wear earplugs out of town can't stand wind noise so don't hear much at all lol
Stuff everything I've always got my bike :)
