Engine noise @3k rpm and above

Hello, I have a 2011 stratoliner 1900, issue is a strange noticeable scratching noise coming from my engine, but only at 3,000rpm and above? Defiantly not drivetrain as the noise appears in neutral. Anyone heard of this before? Thanks

A liitle late maybe, but my roady purrs really nicely at 3000 rpm, when riding that is.

Could you maybe make a sound recording of this scratchy noise?

TIA, kind regards, Wim

I appreciate your reply, the issue is still ongoing. I have no idea how to upload an audio of the noise? I don’t see an option for that, only photo’s

Try uploading as a zip-file, Click on Advanced rather Quick edit, it gives you the option to drag and drop.

Alternatively, link to a youtube of the sound.

Please include the sound before it makes the noise as well, so we can compare.

HTH, kind regards, Wim

you have push rods so it cant be a loose cam chain dragging inside

the only things that would be spinning in neutral are the alternator, the clutch basket on the flywheel.... ?!

I would not run the engine if it does not sound right to you. If something is scratching or scraping then something has come loose in the engine. Take it to a Yamaha dealer on a trailer and let them check it out.

If you keep riding it till it fails completely you may destroy the engine.

There were some issues with the 1600 / 1700 / 1900 series engines with things coming loose - they should have been fixed by 2011.

I donít think it is a good idea to rev the engine to 3000 rpm in neutral either, so it may be nothing, or just something rattling weirdly .

If it is just for a few seconds, it shoudl eb ok, no?

Kind regards, Wim

Thank you for your input, I want to make it clear though, it’s not like something is jumping around in there, like something fell off and is now making noise here and there, it is a constant noise/scratch/scraping noise only at and after 3k rpm

Thank you, but letís wait a little to see what advice KCW has. Destroying your engine just to let us hear the sound is not a good thing to do after all.
