Ringing sound at 40 to 50 mph?
I've noticed a ringing sound that starts to develop at 40mph, is present between 42 and 48mph, then just fades as 50mph hits. This is a '08 900 Custom, 3500 miles.
It's not the ticking (which it also has, but is apparently normal, as per the other thread on the board), and it's not what I would describe as a whine (which apparently is also normal)...but is a metal-on-metal ringing sound. It's not rhythmic or pulsing...it's a constant ring. It's not loud; however, I can hear it above the drone of the bike. I can't seem to isolate where it's coming from, though.
Interestingly, it's present in both fourth and fifth gear at that aforementioned speed, so it doesn't appear to be gear-related. Odd, though, that it's isolated to that mph parameter.
Any thoughts? Another interesting noise that's just organic to the Vulcan, or is it something I should be concerned about?
