Does anyone know about this. My r3 is only 3 months old. About 700 miles on it. Today I have noticed a noise coming from what sounds like a tire noise above 40 mph. Yes the tire pressure is good. If I pull the clutch in and just let it coast I still here the noise. Any one have any ideas about this. Thanks

If it's nothing to do with the tyres then next I'd check your chain tension. A loose chain would also add to the road noise.

My R3 made a weird noise from day-1.
It's kind of a "wah wah wah wah wah wah wah" noise around 35 to 40 mph.

It makes me laugh everytime I hear it, because it reminds me of something some cheap piece-of-crap chinese wind-up TOY would do.
:laugh:
