Noisy Engine

When my 900 Custom is cool it seems really quite. When it warms up it seems that there is a lot of transmission noise and clicking. (sounds like valve noise but maybe not)

Anyone had the same issues???

The 900 makes mechanical noises and it's normal. The clicking is just FI solenoids.

After a while you will get used to the noise. This is my first twin. Fuel injectors are noisy seems to rev alot but this is just the nature of the beast.

The VN 900 is notorious for it's engine noise.

There's not a darn thing wrong with it. Those noises are normal.
