    Scott Rink, New 13TTse owner, Hello!

    Hello Fellow Trophy 1200se enthusiasts!  I recently bought a 2013 model because my wife found it quite comfortable on the back of a rented 2012 that we had for 6 days.  We flew into Las Vegas, she took the shuttle to Red Mountain Resort in St. George UT. I took a Uber to the Eagle Rider agency where I got the TTse.  For 6 days we blasted Zion and Bryce national parks together on the TTse.  Had a great time because see was comfortable.  More comfortable than on the back of my 2008 Goldwing, so she is a bit particular.  I hated the medieval torture rack that was the worn out low seat, but I realized that seats can be replaced.  So I found a 2013 TTse with 13,000 miles near my home in Woodbine NJ that was available so I bought it.  Has a corbin seat on it already, so that is on the plus side.  Love the suspension.  It seems that I have a noise that sounds like a bad bearing.  I noticed that when I am in neutral, and pull in the clutch, the noise stops.  If it were an old manual transmission on a car, I would think it was bad input shaft bearings.  I also hear it while riding two up, like it was a wheel bearing.  Difficult to pin down from just riding, so when I get a chance, I plan on attaching my chassis ear to various points on the bike.  The chassis ear, for those who are not familiar, is up to six microphones with spring clips, that can be attached to a noise source at different locations, in order to pin down the location, loudest point.  Have to figure out how to listen to the headphones with the helmet on or maybe fine a safe place to use the headphones without the helmet.  So if any of you have experienced similar noise, your input would be valued guidance to me.  Scott

    Hi Scott and welcome to the gang  :821: They do all whine a bit from the drive unit. Have a search for "Whine" I think it was put down to the straight cut gears
    It wasn't me !!

    Hi rinkhsk and :400: to the Club !

    I'd be surprised if it was the Final Drive or even Gearbox gears making the
    noise if it happens in Neutral, and stops when the clutch is pulled in,
    more likely to be clutch, or as you say Input shaft related.

    The Service Manual description of the clutch states that an auxilliary gear train also drives
    the alternator, and a chain connected to the rear of the clutch drives the combined
    oil and water pump, so it's conceivable that operating the clutch may also vary
    any noise being generated by those components.

    It would be worth you finding another Trophy and comparing the two
    to see whether the noise you are hearing is "normal" !  :169:

    Cheers  :821:

    Hello and welcome.... sure your noise will turn out to be normal and you are just aware of it because it's new. :400:
