Hey, reading another post, I remembered .....
The balancer bushings can wear out and cause a racket. So also touch the left front corner, forward of the round stator cover, just in case.
But would that simply go away when it warmed up?
I’m all for being thorough so I’ll go ahead and check as much as I can.
I searched more info and judging by what I read and my current odometer reading (22K) it seams like I’m prime time for the tensioners to be replaced. OEM are freakin $97 each with shipping! No thanks, I ordered the TOC’s. I don’t mind paying up a little because it’s the kind of issue that’ll kill the bike if left too long but I wasn’t paying that much for the OEM if they’re known to be problematic.
