I just bought a 2019 790 Duke a few months ago and have over 2,000 miles on it. Great city bike! I came from a Yamaha FZ09 and the KTM seems to do everything better even without the same power.
Anyway, I'm not sure if it started recently or I have had it all along, but it seems that the front of the engine makes more noise, a kind of tapping in the front of the engine. It is also more noticeable, but not always, when the bike is cold.
The dealer says not to worry, that it is normal. Just wondering if anyone else feels their engine makes this tapping, knocking noise.
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
