    My 2001 1200C doesn't have a tach and I am feeling my way around, finding the range of the gears.A few times while down shifting I hear a flapping type sound.(It sounds like a playing card attached to a bycycle spoke) Any ideas on what this may be? The bike has only 4000 miles on it and was well cared for by the original owner. Thanks

    Possibly the primary chain could use an adjustment.

    Thanks, I'll check the primary chain.
