Default Cams, Engine and Transmission Noise

Hi Guys,


Does the sewing machine noise and the transmission clanking go away after the cam upgrade? If not, how can I get rid of them. What have you tried? Did it work?


Thanks,

Atlanta, GA

No you'll still have the sewing machine noise
Loud pipes might do it for you.

I was afraid of that. That is a turn off. How can such horrible noises come from such a beautiful bike?

I just came off an HD Street Glide for the past 6+ years so I understand where your coming from but I wouldn't call it horrible. MY SG clanked changing gears as well and to be honest, it was more like a grind. The Vic just sounds like a positive thud. After a week, I have learned how to shift her better and the clanks are not nearly as bad. As far as the mechanical sounds from the motor, it is what it is. My SG also had primary whine when downshifting and slowing down. I haven't upgraded my exhaust yet either so when you do, it should make a difference drowning out some of the undesirable sound as stock is too quiet in my opinion.

I get rid of the noise by riding, usually. Helmet, wind noise, often MP3 player going...what drivetrain noise?

I don't view them as horrible noises. If that is what it's supposed to sound like, then so be it. If there are any changes in the sound, it may be a warning of things to come...

Here is a solutoin...use a full faced helmet with good insulating properties.

I use a Shoei RF-1000 and never even noticed the amont of noise UNTIL I started using a half helmet I bought during a memorial day sale. The helmet is quality but now that there is nothing on the sides protecting my ears, I now hear ever clank and rattle. It's still nothing like the compensator noise that some were getting but I can DEFINITELY hear the engine a LOT BETTER now. I do have the stock pipes on this bike and they are quiet until you jump on the throttle and then there is a nice low thump-thump-thump but now that I can hear it better I may well decide that throatier pipes may become a greater priority than they had been (for me).




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

Not sure if louder pipes are the solution if you are overly tuned into the engine noise.
I put Bassani slip ons on my bike and while the exhaust note is great I noticed a significant increase in lifter tap like noise. The noise was bothering me so much I went to the dealer to have it checked and the manager laughed at me, and said it was louder because of the reduction in back pressure on the valves due to increased flow. While I didn't believe him (and not sure I still do) he fired up a stock bike and then one with pipes and there was a very noticeable difference in the two.

Yeah, putting cams in the bike will make the transmission totally silent and shift like butter. It will also cure arthritis, male pattern baldness, and erectile dysfunction.
