Now a proud owner of an 06 919, a few more questions
Just picked up a 06 919 with 7000 miles for 4300. I noticed a few things that I have questions about.
1. What tha heck is up with the chain? Right now it seems way too loose. It seems to be resting on the swing arm? It drives fine and the owner said he thought it was loose as well and brought it in to the dealer but the dealer said it was adjusted correctly. I don't see how that could be right.
2. First gear sounds different than the other gears. I a little bit of a whine or something. I can notice it when I downshift from second, as I release the clutch, there is a noticeably different gear noise as I hear first coming in.
3. When I grab and wiggle some of the body panels, like the tail, it can wiggle. Normal or something loose?
4. Lastly, What is that general whining noise when the bike is running? Fuel injectors.
It runs and drives fantastic, I think I am in love. I am just curious if these things are normal. That "growl" at 3500rpm is just awesome.
