XVS 650 and scary noises


Recommended Posts


I got myself xvs 650 1997 34k KM about year ago and everything seemed to be fine. Last year November I did the oil change, drove few KM and put it away for winter. Roughly month ago I took it out and went for a ride. Came back and noticed that engine is somewhat louder. It could be that oil I used is different hence the noise difference ( I had extremely noisy suzuki once and my virago was not much better in that regard). It seems like its been getting louder the more I ride. I slapped some 20W 50 in it today and noise wise it sounds about same ( does shift smoother though). Maybe its just my paranoia but it would be great if someone could shed some light on it. 


Sorry about the bad video quality. Bike is parked underground and everything there sounds louder. Il take a new one tomorrow outside. Or maybe all those sounds are normal.

Thanks in advance.
