I recently purchased a 2011 XC. I'm still breaking it in and recently noticed a rattling noise in the first three gears at around 3000 rpm.
It sounded like it was coming from the front somewhere while riding. So I parked it to rev the motor and it looks like it's coming from the pipes, after a few revs it stopped...ummmmmmmmmmmmm
While doing this I discovered there's seems to be rev limiter as it cuts out about 500 rpm from red line.
Has anyone had this happened to their bikes?
Otherwise I love the bike except that whole buffeting thing which I hope will be remedy as soon as the new shield arrives.
