Does my 700XX engine sound normal?

The bike is a 2008 with 1hr ride time on it. The engine seems to knock pretty loud and was wondering if it sounds normal as my 08 Rincon engine is kinda noisy also.

I got mine about a month ago with around 5 hours on it. IMHO it just needs to be ridden. Mine seemed to smooth out by about 10 hours. Your bike is not "broke in" so follow the owners manual for break in operations and go ride the thing for a few hours. I think you will find the same thing.



Donít take this sarcastically but I am just another keyboard expert so donít trust my word.



You will however find lots of great info on this forum just like I do most every day. Lots of guys here have been riding these XX'x since they first came out and they have great experiance to share.

Just make sure you run premium fuel. I always used 93!

04honda,
Sounds great! These engines tend to be noisy. After you get some hours on it you will forget about the "noise" and just enjoy that great machine. By-the-way when you get your helmet on the noise is hardly noticeable.

Normal, especially when new. Mine does this and tends to get a little quieter when i pull in the clutch. I prob. got close to 20 hrs on mine with no problems alway run 93 octane to prevent spark knock as the bikes tend to run a little hot.

Sure have. Had a random ticking on top of the head. Stealer rebuilt motor. Still ticked. Just put new cam with new decompressioner and cam chain tensioner... Still ticked. Dropped it off at a different dealership yesterday. No loss in performance but it shouldn't be ticking.
