2007 K1200GT Warble Sound on Idle
Ever since I bought my 2007 K1200GT, it makes a kind of warbling sound on idle. There is a high pitch component to the sound, but it isn't a whine. I assume that it is normal, and the service people never mention it. I never owned a four-cylinder bike that didn't have a smooth purr when it idles - this is the first one that is different.
1. Does your K1200GT have a warble sound as it idles? Is it normal?
2. If so, what causes the "warble" sound? What is the high pitch component?
