Re: starting issues 2008 1000RR
"crankshaft abnormal primary drive gear noise"
this is honda's official title.
Mine makes a wining noise (similar to a supercharger) and I thought maybe I had this prob, took it to my dealer and they checked it, it was not the case.
honda have a test procedure which is something like:
warm up the engine, put it is first, with the brakes on slightly load the trans by slowly releasing the clutch. do it several times and check if the engine noise changes each time. if there is no significant change , the you are ok.
can't tell from that video but I suggest if you can, get a second opinio from another dealer
