    What engine noises do YOU hear ?

    Hi Guys

    You are all probably fed up with me and my engine noise questions but let me ask this another way.

    What significant engine noises do you hear when you ride YOUR bike?

    When hot mine has a regular tap tap tap at tick over which seems to turn into a warbling type noise at higher revs then just gets lost in the general engine noise

    On the overrun at 5k and less the tap tap tap sounds more like a nut being shaken in a can.

    When i dont wear ear plugs my engine noises are quite prominent even though I have a CCC exhaust can

    Cheers

    Stu

    Get yourself down to Squires this wednesday night stuuk and i'll have a listen/compare with mine etc i might not be able to tell you if its got owt wrong with it, but at least you can compare it with another mille and if yours is particularly noisy then i'll just rev mine a little and that'll drown out any noise within 5 miles

    you guys have to stop, just ride the damn thing, you'll end up driving yourselves MAD!

    unless theres a loss in power I dont care what I hear (check the oil level by the way, mine was quite low today) :S gave it an oil + filter change for good measure

    Here here!!!

    Mine taps when it's under 5K RPM but to be honest it doesn't spend much time under 5K RPM.

    These Rotax engines are pretty bullet proof mechanically speaking, wouldn't worry too much.

    Just ride

    When mine rattles I put oil in it. If it pops and bangs I change up a gear...
