M8 Front End/Primary Noise
I have a 17' RGS with the new M8. I recently went out riding with the girlfriend and while on our ride I started to notice an almost metallic "Bell-like" pinging noise coming from the primary side of the bike. It only happens when I get going from a full stop in first gear. I can't pin-point exactly where the noise is coming from as it only happens while riding and after the bike warms up. So, it being time for the 5000 miles service, I decided to remove the primary cover an do some digging. I checked the primary chain tension and it seems to be good. Well within the allowed specs according to the manual and the compensator seems to be good. Nothing loose, no metal shavings on the plug, no scoring from chain slap, etc. It doesnt affect bike performance at all, she has no issues getting going. From what i can tell it only does it while im riding two-up so at this point im just looking for anything else i should check or just an explanation of what could be happening. Thanks all!
