Has anyone figured out what causes our bikes to make a chirping sound at around 3k on the tachometer? I have seen posts in here before, but I don't think I ever heard why it does it.
You might check the tachometer, too, and just make everything's okay there. Usually that kind of chirping can get worse at higher rpms, but there may be a glitch that's causing you to hear it at 3K.No windshield, no modifications. The bike has always done that since I bought it (used). It is odd in that the ONLY time I hear it is when cruising at 3000 RPM. No matter what gear, no matter what speed. At first, I thought it may be an exhaust leak at the header. Changed crush gaskets- no difference. You may be right- it is something in the design of the engine.
If I need to replace the exhaust, what is a good aftermarket exhaust system that's not too loud? (I don't subscribe to the loud pipes save lives theory)
