Re: engine problem

Many reports of noisy valve trains since the bike was introduced. Mine made a rhythmic knock in 3rd gear for a while when new. I ignored as the bike came with a warranty and continued riding for 27000 miles with no issues. I couldn't tell you if it still makes a noise although I don't think so.
