    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to ask if it happens to others.

    When I start my bike after the night when engine is cold, it sounds very smooth, the engine is not too loud, but when I stop after a ride for a break and try to start it again, it feels that engine works very loud at the beginning for a few seconds and when I continue to ride engine seems much louder than it was the first ride. Has this happened to anyone? Is it normal?

    I bet you mean the cam chain rattling till the tensioner is up to pressure?

    I’ve noticed some slight metallic rattling sometimes when I’m riding at a low rpm over small bumps or uneven terrain. I don’t know if it comes from the chain or the gearbox or elsewhere. It’s hard to reproduce, it just happens sometimes. Has anyone experienced a similar issue ?

    Yes I think it’s chain rattling till the tensioner is up. Is this mechanical issue or normal bike behavior?
