  • Is this how an idling engine of 350 classic bullet should sound?

    Hello All,

    I recently got my 5 months old RE classic 350 serviced and tuned up at the authorised service centre. I do not know why but I feel that something is not right with the tuning. I also do not what is/could be wrong. It could just be my brain going crazy. I have heard that there are people who can just make out what (if anything) is wrong with the engine by just hearing the sound of an idling engine.

    Here is a short video and audio sample of the engine which was heated up for about 4-5 min and then left to idle. I will be happy to hear any thoughts people might have before I take it to some other mechanic to get the tuning checked.

    Video (around 10 MB in size)
    Extracted Audio (< 1MB)

    Thanks

    Excuse me for my naivety.

      To be very frank, I don't see any issue ..

      1. Beats are proper, No Missing Beats.
      2. Tappet Clatter/Chatter are constant throughout the video.
      3. No Knocking or Pinging Sound observed.

        Thanks abhinavrakesh. The Brand Store service centre mechanic screwed up the bike tuning and now I am trying to get that rectified.
