transmission question.

and yes I hit the search feature first

so my 2011 has 19k on her. it seems the tranny is getting louder.
appears to be running fine, shifting fine but at speeds after running a while, the tranny gets louder and almost like a loud popping/clicking noise.
has standard oil from the dealer in it and I have the redline sitting on the shelf as 20k is time to change it.warranty runs out in august.
is it normal for it to get louder as the fluid is nearing its end?
I am asking now before taking it to the dealer for maybe someone has had this issue in the past.

If it's under warranty, take it in and let them check it out. Keep the paper work for your records.

I would take it in and have the dealer change the trans fluid that way the tech can see how much metal shavings are on the drain plug and if any chunks of metal come out. If you do the oil change before you take it in there may not be any metal in the oil when the tech drains it.
Should of been using gear lube instead of motor oil in that trans.

well got the call from the stealer today. they rode it for a total of 50 miles and everything sounds fine. no issues. great. now you owe me 50.00 for your deductible plus 47.80 for 1/2 hour labor and 8.00 for shop stuff.
fortunately the owner of the dealer was there so I took the receipt to her for an explanation as I was told they only thing they did was ride it.
we walked back to the service guy and she asked why the 47.50 and 8.00.
well we have to pay the tech for his time and he had to wash his hands before getting on the bike and he wiped it down when he was done.
I paid the deductible and left.
tomorrow the redline and mobil 1 will be put in.

on another note the 2015 rg cvo is sweet looking at 40.524.00

Glad to hear that the tech thinks it is OK! You should consider using 75w90 or 75w140 gear lube in the transmission. I use 75w140 in the summer.

Its unfortunate but the techs at my local Harley shop all having hearing problems? Might be part of the requirement?
