I have been trying to figure out how to ask questions on this site and I think I finally found it. WELL I have a 2005 and reason for buy: it was to get the cadilac ride and less NOISE. I went to this from a CR500 which I turned over to my 14 year old son. I bought the bike with 139 miles on it. Second ride I noticed that in neutral I could hear some noise coming from the clutch area. I pulled the clutch in and it went away. Out again and there was that crazy rattle/noise. Well my partner has the same bike but 2003, we immediatley listened to his, it was almost silent compared to mine (800 miles). I have found that when rolling down hill in gear I really hear noise and feel some vibration (vibration to slight degree). I sure hope this is not an inherent trait in this bike. Any ideas on this one. It is a bit noisier than it was when I first noticed it. I now have a total of 280 mile on the machine. ???????
