    I just purchased a left over 2015 I am coming from a Goldwing that engine is very quiet.  The trophy sounds noisier to me however I am not sure what it should sound like and I haven't found one in the area to compare.
    Thanks

    I also had a Goldwing prior to the Trophy.  The Goldwing engine is silent in comparison to the Trophy.  Don't be alarmed with the noise; a decent helmet, or earplugs will be necessary for noise control.  The 2015 models do not have the problem that you describe. My 2014 has plenty of driveline gear noise, and engine noise.  I've been assured that it's normal and gives character to the Trophy.

    I'd be curious as to the % of bikes within the VIN qualified and had to have the work done.....

    Not many that I am aware of.
    Most are not even aware that there was an issue.
    I cant say that I have heard one with the noise that
    was spoken of.
