Not a bad sound really, I'm not concerned about it, just curious. Right at 50kph (31mph) in 3rd gear, my bike makes kind of a fluttery sound. Not loud, but hard to miss. I don't know if 'fluttery' is a very good description but it's the best I can come up with. If I'm accelerating, the sound only lasts for a couple of seconds right when I hit 50kph and then disappears. If I'm decelerating, same thing. If I keep my speed constant at 50/51kph after the sound starts, it keeps making it. I hear the same sound in 2nd right around 40kph (25mph) so it's rpm related but with no tach I have no idea what it's reving at.

Anyway, like I said, I'm just curious about it. Anyone else notice this? Just another sound this machine likes to make?
