Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 RT (ABS)
I was riding my 04' RT1150 yesterday & heard a loud droaning/whining noise when I accelerated over 5,000 rpm, I coasted to a stop downshifting still hearing the noise. When I came to a stop the noise went away. I set off again & intentially reved high over a few gear changes and the noise cam back, again coasting to a stop with the clutch in & again when I came to a stop the noise went away. The noise does not increase with the revs & does not seem to have any effect on the motor. I rode for another hour or so & when entering an on ramp & accelerating hard the noise came back & I noticed the speedo wavering up at 110-120 mph whilst going around 80mph. Again the noise went away coming to a stop at the off ramp. I assumed this was happening in the higher revs until I went over a rail crossing at 25mph & the noise came back again, then at a stop light went away again. Can you please help with any ideas as to what this problem is?
