Same as above speedy, mine makes the same noise and stops when the clutch disengages.   Glad to hear that 52K is with no problems janfmiller.   I currently have a little over 22K and was wondering about the sturdiness of the TTSE as compared to the RT.   The last RT I had was approaching 80 thou and ran as good as when new, even better.    I had the 20000 service done recently and the bike seems to run better everyday that I ride it.   Lately it seems that the motor, which I thought was a little noisy at first, has quieted down and just pulls like a locomotive.   I am liking this bike a lot.   If the longevity is there I doubt I will ever go back to the RT.
