Hi, Anonymous I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
15. Solid Lifters---TICK
17. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

The thick layer of grease is probably gone from between the engagement pawls and the thing they push against (forgot the proper name). There should still be a thin layer there, but it does cause more noise. I've been riding a Deore 525 on the rear for the since mid 03, and the same noice popped up at about the same noise. As far as I can tell, don't worry.

okay theres a couple possable things that can cause this .... carbon on the valves, ran hard,not frequent oil changes, low on oil, cheap oil, spark plugg is too long , too much oil somtimes causes this,crank case breather plugged,it all depends on the way it was treated in the past or the present
i change my oil about every 15-20 hours keeps debre down and less friction on engine,remember this is not water cooled! so use the best 10-40 oil or atleast good known oil and run some seafoam through the gas,it will take that carbon off . and if you dont have a inline fuel filter u should get one they really save carbs and there only $3.00 at oreily! hope this helps <walker>

The following site has some DL650 manuals and they can be downloaded for free. The site has over 3000 manuals so the list may take a minute or so to build. Even if the manual downloaded is a year or two off, the service procedures will be the same. Cosmetic changes are the usual differences year to year. www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Testimonial: "Many thanks TomBones sir. Required items now downloaded and in my hard drive. Again, many thanks. Lol Williams."
If they cant duplicate it your good.Usualy with backfiring i would make sure to eliminate any exhaust leaks. The dealer is inexperienced at solving compound problems,(sorry) not picking a fight, but sometimes cleaning is not goog enough,I went through this with a 1400 Intruder.several attempts were needed to get the two carbs level on the same line with each other.so the floats would work properly together,then set fuel flow and the air flow through the ventouri in the carbs.Also i had to make these adjustments while level (not on side stand) The floats were very sencitve to needle valve to seat adjustment(bent to open or close some of the flow)
