Noise when in 5th gear
Iíve been ridding my 2009 C50 for a couple of yrs and Iíve always used a full helmet. I just got a half helmet and now Iím hearing things that I didnít hear before. Iím now noticing when I shift into 5 th gear I hear a funny noise that sounds like itís coming from the front of the bike, but when I cut the throttle the noise stops. Also if Iím doing say 40 mph in 4 th gear I donít hear that noise as much, but if I keep it at 40 mph and shift into 5 th gear the noise is more pronounced. I maintain my bike very well, and change my oil and filter every 1000 miles, I use Valvoline 4 stroke motorcycle oil, and K&N oil filters. The valves were adjusted just last yr, and thereís only a few thousand miles on it since the valves were adjusted. Other than that noise, the bike is running great, it now has 31,657 miles on it. Could this be that 5 th gear complaint Iíve read so much about?
