I seem to get more confused the deeper I get into this. The CTX 1300 has an extremely unique sound. A high pitched hum combined with a growl. It has been well documented that this sound is rare, and on the CTX forum it was stated that this whine is due to straight cut gears, which they said was rare in most engines.
You are saying most motorcycles have them, so on that basis, most motorcycles should have that whine to them. But they don't. So, when I hear it on the Valkyrie, it makes me want to know what they have in common.
If it's the oil pump gears, what is it that makes them whine that other bikes don't have?
Forgive my annoying inquiries but I am endlessly curious about this.
