Have you lubricated your chain?

A lot of "engine noise" can be removed by trying this.
Mine has a noisy gearbox. Does the "noise" decrease or go away when you pull in the clutch?
mine sounds like a friggin diesel.
Hi and thanx for the quick response.

No change in sound when clutch is engaged

New Chain and sprockets needed for sure i guess a lot of noise comes from this ! Have been driving Guzzi´s for 10 years so i'm not used to the chain sound

And yes mine sounds like a diesel(at idle) too but as soon as the revs pick up a bit it´s sweet and quiet...

F*#k i thought they were deisels,been running mine on that since new.Yeah mine sounds noisy too,as mentioned above lubing your chain stops a lot but they are just a noisy engine to start with,and they have no fairings around the motor to quiten them down. ;D
Yeah they're noisy, I have an anxiety disorder from this after adjusting my valves.
7 year old thread, my 2013 s3 se is so noisy, between the intake chirping and the cam chain grinding I cannot hear the exhaust note. This one may be going away. seriously harleys with their 110 year old design run quieter.sad, sad, sad. I must seem like a troll posting so much "less than glowing" reports in the 5-6 weeks since I bought my bike new. and I took it out today with my kid on his xl1200c and his buddy on his 600 honda cbr and and felt happy with my ride, even pulled a wheely for my kid. a block from home i pull the earplugs and couldnt believe the engine noise. it sounds like i'm running it dry! wtf.
Sounds like you just need to sell your bike and go buy a Japanese bike....adios! :wave:
ear plugs...
Get a louder exhaust......problem solved.
