  1. Hummmm... I have the visor and it works for me. Might be the difference in the block we have. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. I don't know if there is anyone on here still but I know a guy with a Venture on Facebook that does. https://www.facebook.com/dave.sledge.39 Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. Lol! Good point! [emoji12] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. The dealer did get back to me and asked me to give them a few days to research. I will post if they can figure anything out. I do get what most of you are saying about changing gears as that's what I do now. It may be the only option but I was just looking for another option. I dont mind spending the extra $ to maybe "help" the whine. It's a side of me called "anal"... At least that's what my wife says. [emoji849] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. I just emailed a nice Yamaha dealer I dealt with last week that helped us when we needed it on our vacation in Harrison last week. I will let you know what they tell me. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah.. Thats what I thought. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. Don Nelson, didn't you say that it was a gamble knowing if you would be getting the "I" basket when ordering so that's why you didn't order one? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. So what I am gathering what your are all saying.. I need the 4xy basket? That will be the so called "I" basket correct? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. I get what your saying... I really do but why would it be louder since this most recent oil change before our trip? I used VTwin Amsoil, which is 20w50. I was just curious if someone has had better luck with an oil to quiet it down. I don't expect to get rid of it. Just quiet it. Maybe go back to Dino oil? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Agreed. It isn't worth all that. If I could just quiet it down a bit... That would passify me. I turn my radio up when it gets too annoying but then I worry about others hearing it. I understand all bikes, all models have there own "sounds". I just don't get why mine has gotten worse. That's why I lean towards the oil being the culprit. I put the Barnett Clutch in last year.

  11. We did 1277 miles on Arkansas back roads over the last week. We did almost all the well known roads. Eureka Springs was very nice! My favorite was the 103 from Clarksville up to Oark Cafe, (good food!) very scenic! Pig Trail I think I was expecting more. Peel Ferry was pretty nice BUT the 125 on the other side of Peel and up to Missouri through the Mark Twain Forest was a great ride! From beginning to end! Scenic Highway 7 was also very nice from Jasper to Harrison along the Arkansas Grand Canyon but we were in rain for most of that. Got a flat tire, luckily it went flat at the hotel.

  12. Honestly, my thoughts for my last oil change were the same as yours are now. I used VTwin Amsoil. I think it may have been worse actually. I think I am going to try Dino oil again. I don't think it shifted as smooth as it did with the Amsoil but I don't recall it being as loud. Believe me.. I know this is a common issue with RSV and the Star platform in general. I can't compare mine to anyone else BUT I know I get alot of compliments on my bike and I dont like the whine... When I pull away. Just a little embarrassing at times I guess.

  13. NO on the "I" basket. I had just read that some are able to quiet it with some different types of oil. I keep reading about the horror stories of getting the correct "I" basket. Part numbers and all. Then I have read as you said, it didn't help much. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Not gonna ask about it. I have spent MANY hours researching about it to no avail. My question is... Who has the best oil, weight and brand, to help quiet some of it? Mine has become quite loud and I used Amsoil. I have tried Castrol, Rotella T6 and nothing seems to help. We just got back from a 3000 mile trip and although the bike performed flawlessly pulling a 450 pound trailer in the hills of Arkansas, I was disappointed in how loud the whining & chirping is. This go round I used Amsoil as I had in the past. Yamalube will probably be my next go round. I don't expect it to go away. It's the nature of MY beast but I wouldn't mind it being more quiet. Even the wife said she heard it this time. I know I have read that it could even be the windshield I use but it's the same one I have always had. Maybe it's just the Temps we had in Arkansas.... 92+. Just looking for ideas and suggestions. I have even heard about some Motorkote additive that some say help. Thanks Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Jeez, how pathetic is that! I didn't even think of messaging him on here! Wow! Thanks for the advice! Sent from my SM-N920R4 using Tapatalk
