Hey all.. a quick question. I've got about 1K miles on my 09 V and I've noticed that around 4K RPM I heard a faintly audible squealing noise coming from the engine. Anyone experience the same thing? Is is clutch slip that I'm hearing, or is it normal?

Not sure what a squealing noise is like, but my best thoughts if you can do it , is to get the back wheel up and rotate the wheel by hand and see if you hear the faith noise.

How was your V Run In done and the noise can be anything from the chain to the cowling and other fittings.

Just run a check and see if there is anything lose.
