    Looking to get some opinions, does this sound normal?

    Hey guys,

    My gen 2 makes a whiney noise under hard acceleration from 8K RPM on until 11K, it's most noticeable at 10K RPM. Does this sound odd to you or is this normal?

    Looks like something is vibrating and making that strange buzz. I don't think it's something mechanical, but I would take it to the dealer and get it checked. Just for the peace of mind

    Interesting. I recently put on that windscreen without one of the 4 washers as I accidentally dropped it in the frame and couldn't find it anymore. Will look into that, thanks!

    Hard to tell with the wind noise, does it do it in neutral too or only in gear? might be worthwhile to get clearer video, I just had a similar moment with my Gen 1's mirror plate coming loose in the housing though that was a much more pronounced vibe instead of this whine. It CAN be gearbox whine though which is pretty noticeable on these bikes and normal but it's generally not this high pitch.

    Its a vibration sound comes from lovely euro5 exhaust. Replace the oem headers with something has no cat, vibration noise will goes away and the engine start running cooler and better.

    Thats what i experienced with akrapovic ss headers.

    Maybe put in some headphones and actually listen before you make helpful comments??? There's a buzzing noise that wasn't there before.  :460:

    Dude...if you want ask bloody daft questions... and yes i’ve Spent more than my fair share of my life around engines from road bikes to Moto GP....you want to know what is going on....?? you plug diagnostics in not head phones and that’s at low revs at 10,000....theirs a lot moving around...and that is before you get to fuelling.
