Warm engine rattle
Hello and a belated happy Christmas everyone.
Wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem as my 05 K1200S - an engine rattle when the bike is warm?
She fires up a dream when cold (after the initial second or two of rattling while the oil gets up to pressure). However, when the engine has properly warmed up after a ride and I switch it off and then on again a few minutes later (after refuelling or popping to the shops) there's a 'bag of nails' rattle.
I assume it must stop at some point because I can't hear it when the bike is moving (due to the ahem, loud pipe, I have on) and when I get home and the bike is ticking over, the noise has gone.
So it doesn't happen at cold start up and when it does happen when warm, it stops after the bike is run. Any ideas?
