Different Sound When Bike is in Neutral


Deltamark

Recommended Posts

Today I changed the oil on my 1999 R1100RT. When I started the bike and put it in neutral, I noticed a slight whirring sound. When I pull in the clutch handle, the sound goes away. I always wear ear plugs when I ride, so I never noticed this sound before. Is it normal or a bad sign with the clutch or something else? Was hoping to take a trip next weekend.

Without hearing it in person no way to really tell. A little gear mesh (tooth contact) noise is normal but a bearing roar isn't.

 

You might want to drop by your local BMW dealer & have a tec take a listen to it just to be sure.

Sounds like a good suggestion, dirt rider. Will do. Thanks.
