2007 600rr 3rd Gear Knock
Has anyone ever had this issue? I did a search, but couldn't find anything with a knock in a specific gear....
I bought this bike with 3k miles and she ran fairly well except for a slight vibration and this 3rd gear knock. The previous owner had paperwork for maintenance all performed at the dealership.
The third gear knock is RPM dependent... it knocks faster as the rpms increase. I can feel it knocking on my pegs and I can hear it. Again, this only happens in third gear, so it doesn't seem like it would be the chain. Is it something in the transmission that is specific to third gear? Is this regular? The oil was just changed prior to my purchase (at the dealership).
If it is the transmission, how hard is it to open the transmission on a bike? I've done a lot of mechanical work on bikes, but nothing transmission related....
Thanks for any help/advice.
