    Strange engine noise

    Hi guys,

    Today while riding I started hearing this odd metal clanking noise from the right side of the bike. Itís a 2019 950S with less than 300 miles.



    Have anyone experienced something similar? Any suggestions? Or this is just the bikeís regular noise that Iím not used to?

    Thanks!
    Felipe

    Hi Felipe,

    Did you check if the noise persists while driving?

    Hi Julian,

    Yes, I noticed it while driving in low speeds and low rpms.

    Any guess?

    I guess you haven't went to the dealer yet for the first service, right? Maybe after first oil change the noise will go and ask them to check in detail.
    From the video sounds like a loose bolt somewhere...you can start with that.

    Correct, haven't done the first service yet.

    I tried again earlier today (just inside the garage) and the noise is a lot lower when the bike is cold. Have sent to video to my local dealer, waiting for them to respond....

    I don't think it's the same thing, but I get a metallic 'clank' when downshifting sometimes. Usually in lower gears (3rd to 2nd) when using the quickshifter.

    It's just a sound that I notice as all other operation seems normal.
