HELP!! 03 954rr making weird noise. Not CCT.
So, my bike has 16k miles on it and has been meticulously been cared for. But a few days ago I noticed that after either accelerating or downshifting, when the RPM are at 4000, I hear a strange noise. Not knocking, grinding, or rattling, but like a muffled metal to metal rubbing.
The next day I changed the oil and it was still there. Still in 1st and 2nd gear.
I was telling a friend about it and was revving the motor in N (after it idled to operating temperature) to 5k and letting it drop back down. I could not replicate the noise until I got the bike upright and off the kickstand.
Bike on kickstand, no noise..
Bike up kickstand down but not touching the ground, I get that sound.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
