I have a 2009 GL1800 AD that I bought new. I currently have 48,000 KMS on it. It hasn't given me any major problems other than some buttons sticking but what has been happening is that I have noticed that my RPM's have been slightly increasing over the past few years. It used to be that at 120 KMS an hour it ram at 3000 but now it seems to be at about 112 it is at 3000. Is this normal and anyone else experience this? Thanks for any comment or input.

Most likely due to different tire treads...

if you are comparing RPM vs GPS actual speed, I can tell the different between tires when I change..
