08 Wing cold startup noise

Post by Mass Goldwing »



I have 08 GL 1800 wing with 9,000 miles. When the bike is started cold it has a strange sound like the earlier Suzuki's and they refered to that noise as Crakshaft Side Thrust knock. I'm not saying that is what this is but just that it resembles the sound. It goes away after a couple of minutes of warm and doesn't do it again all day. Anyone know what this is ?
