Excessive Engine Whine/Squeel
« on: March 29, 2021, 10:43:25 AM »
Hello, Brainstrust!
I know the STs are known for their engine squeel, but I feel mine is increased significantly in the last week. I adjusted the balance shafts on the weekend, but this did not seem to make much difference. Is there anything else I should consider as cause?

Very hard to diagnose without hearing it. It could be just a normal sound, or even a cracked exhaust heat shield.

Thanks Brock, yes might just me being paranoid. I guess I'll have to compare with another.

You will have to get to an RTE, to see a variety of bikes, and ask for opinions. There are a bunch of knowledgeable people on here, and some of it is even useful.
