Annoying air intake roar!
As a new owner of this otherwise fabulous machine, the one REALLY embarrassing thing that in my opinion RUINS this bike is the annoying air intake roar.
Mine makes a terrible din particularly around 5500 to 6000 rpm ( the sweet spot where you are accelerating up through the gears or overtaking someone)!!!!
Has anyone else experienced this or have I bought a lemon???
Itís acceptable (I guess) on some street racer bike where yourctrying to impress your mates, but on a Ďrefinedí GS ....... come on! Itís just embarrassing! Add that to the TERRIBLE noise that comes from the top of the engine and it just sounds like itís about to spill the contents on the roadside!
What can o do to keep the intake quieter?? Different filter? Bigger air box??
