Just enjoy that reassuringly reassuring reassurance of a steel timing gear. Got help you if you fit a K&N and a pair of janspeeds.
Agreed , I like the whine . I had a honda motorbike V4 quad gear cams , thats 4 straight cut gears per bank ......they made more noise than anything else on the bike.
Bit like the slap of cold , forged pistons .....the sound of good things to come 🙂
Sometimes I talk to myself ... and we both have a good laugh
