    I know it is probably ok, but I changed to synthetic oil, and put the windshield on. Sounds like an old sewing machine!! All the ticks, whirs, and whatnot. 11K on it now. Runs great. Thank goodness for Pandora and earphones!

    Windshield definitely helps you to hear things you otherwise did not. +1 on Pandora and earphones.

    You are correct. I just put a shorter shield on my EG and the bike seems quieter now....

    Have to agree. Sounds like a different bike with windshield on or off. Amazes me how much sound is reflected off windshield.

    JBC2565, Is that sound from the front of you or behind you?
