Tks for the info guys....I appreciate you taking the time to check out the sound. I really just want to make sure that all is well with the new addition. I love it so far. I will keep an ear on it.
Know anyone in South Carolina other than a kawi dealer who can do the doo? I have never torn down a motor before.
Have you adjusted your doo? The balancer chain makes some noise and vibration when it has to much slack.
I most always ride with earplugs but when I don't wear them the engine noise is concerning. It's a fairly noisy motor to begin with and (like Tom said) when the valves are loose it makes even more noise!
