I swear ive never heard this before...the bike only has about 100 miles on it. In drive mode from around 3rd gear on wards when accelerating a strange higher pitch sound through the gears...ill try and record it if poss. I told my dealer..they think its nothing and told me to mention it when i bring it in for the 600 service...any ideas

I wouldn't worry unduly, both the manual and DCT bikes do a fair bit of 'clunking' when going through the gearbox, thats why most of the DCT boys stick it in SPORT mode, we're too busy grinning to hear anything :305:

This has been covered before https://www.crosstourer.com/index.php/topic,1623.msg17382.html#msg17382

Marvincon was worried as well

Cameras anywhere near an engine 'pick-up' or 'magnify' many weird noises and you are proabaly better off not listening to them

Could the whirring/whining noise you have noticed not just be the inherant V4 noise (have you had a V4 before?) or the DCT operation?

Don't worry .....be happy!!  or ..............








wear earplugs :305:
