Squeak/squeal from right-side of engine
I have a 1998 750 and at idle I hear an intermittent squeak/squeal which sounds like it could be coming from the right side of the engine. It's a high pitched sound kind of like a dry bearing being spun too fast. Kind of hard to describe in words but the kind of sound that when you hear it you say "oh yeah"! lol It doesn't make the sound all the time only occasionally and it's only noticable at idle.
Anyway, it doesn't sound like it's currently a major problem but have just recently bought the bike I'd like to make sure I'm starting out on good footing. What I've done so far:
Spline Lube with Moly-60
Final Drive Oil Change
Oil and Filter change (I won't go into the type of oil and filter, lol)
K&N Filters in the stock ears
Replaced the speedo gear box and cable (It was frozen)
Replaced the battery (Need to exchange the wet cell I bought at AutoZone for a MF)
Coolant Drain & Refill
Still To Do:
Front Tire replacement (plenty of tread but a bit dried out)
Brake Fluid Drain & Refill
.020 Gap adjustment for the pickup coils.
Any idea on the squeak or comments on my plan of attack with the new ride?
TIA for the advice,
