What is that Pffftt sound?


Recommended Posts

Okay, this has been bothering me for a while now. I have an '06 RT with about 4500 miles on it. Every once in a while, while accelerating (usually hard) or downshifting, I hear this Pffffft sound. I have no idea what it is or if it is okay. Break in for the bike was done in the mountains and I didn't baby it at all. Any thoughts?

Your bike has been eating camp beans again (insert the fart scene from Blazing Saddles!!!!!).


Sorry, could not resist!


From where does the sound originate? Is this related to clutch use or are you in gear when it occurs?

I can't really tell where the sound is coming from because I am usually moving at a pretty good pace when it happens. I can say that it happens regularly under acceleration especially when I open the throttle all the way and the revs are up above 6K. It also happens sometimes on downshift, usually around 2nd gear.
