Bike is quieter at first
My engine seems to be a lot quieter in the first mile or so until it get warm and then it is noticeably noisier. It is a metal on metal noise. I’m still on the oil that was used for my 600 mile service. I check the oil levels weekly and they are good. I just hit 5,400 miles.
I wonder if the oil was a little bit “heavier,” if that would make a positive difference. I never noticed this on my K1200LT.
The shifting into 1-2-3 is a lot smoother in the first few miles.., less noisy!
