    Strange Noise

    So, this is not a problem but a curiosity. Day one of ownership and I am standing in my locked garage simply admiring my new purchase when I hear a noise. The bike had been parked up for over an hour with the keys removed. I lean into the bike and sure enough, every minute there is a mechanical whirring noise.

    Does anybody know what that is?

    Secondly, different to my last Honda, the computer records in either kilometres or miles per litre, not per gallon. Is everyone else's bike like this and can it be changed to per gallon?

    Thanks in advance   :001:

    I have never heard anything but I don't think I have ever checked. The mpg is annoying but i don't think you can change it

    I have noticed the noise, but don't know what it is.

    Annoyingly we can't get an mpg display  :003:
    I spend boring stretches of road converting it in my head but have a standard mantra. Not exact but close enough...
    9 mpl = 40mpg
    10 mpl = 45mpg
    11 mpl = 50mpg
    12 mpl = 55mpg
    I have never hit 12 mpl   :164:

    I knew that it wouldn't be a fault and it does sound like space invaders  :001:    Thanks for the clarification.

    Re the mpg, it sounds like everyone has a per litre reading. I was just worried that I had been sold a European model!  It is a shame that per gallon is not possible as that is what the readout said on my 2015 NC750X

    Word of advice, don't post two different questions in the same post. A topic needs to be about a single subject. Just create another topic  :038:

    I haven't noticed said noise....is my bike broken, or am I just a deaf old coot?


    I know...I know....separate threads for different questions....

    But seriously....it's nearly midnight and now I want to run out and turn the bike on and listen for the noise...
