Guy i have a K8 1000 has 12000k's on the clock. A few mates have said my gear box is very noisy but i always thought it was from when i changed the front sprocket. It makes a winding noise bad in first

today i changed a mates front sprocket for him and it made no change in how noisy the box sounds

Mine i really noisy in 1st and i can here it in 6th should i take it to the dealer or thrash on

regards

changing the sprockets shouldn't affect any noises coming from the tranny since you aren't adjusting anything with the internal gears. Since it is a K8 and should be under warranty then I would take it a good dealer and have them check it out.

yah get it checked out. Could be getting close to letting go in a bad way. I'm not sure if the parts your replaced were voiding any warrenty but I'd think the dealer would be happy to do it under warrenty since they or you wouldn't be paying for it.

Put the gearing back to standard, then book it in to your main dealer, and get them to investigate the noise.

my 06 750 does the same thing. has ever since the day i bought it
yeah mine has done it for ages as well. starting to worry me a bit as a few mates have commented on it. So i rode a few others and none do it.

Putting the stock sprocket back on today and gunna swing past the dealer

the reason i was a bit more worried now is it is starting to do it in 6th and now 5th

I have flogged the fck out of it from day 1 has 12oook now so who knows it could be on its way out
