Both of my 950s 'chirped'- the '03 silver and the '04 GO!

Just a theory....

P.S. CHECK YOUR COOLANT!

I don't think so, but as all of it had been pulled from the reservoir, it's hard to tell. I think what happened is her cooling sys. had never been bled properly, and after riding at 10-20 mph in HOT canyons in Utah, and dropping the bike a few times, the bubble finally reached the top. At least this is what I hope because alternative B is a blown head gasket
(no other symptoms to suggest this however...) This is a NEW 2004 model (orange, not s, black rims, no epc, etc...)

My silver 03's coolant turned filthy over time, though this was after the 600mi service and a gasket could have been torn or something.

I had hoped that it was due to a low grade coolant but now think it was an oil-coolant leak. I hope my Go! is good.

When the silver overheated early this year I was shocked at the sludge that I drained. Still have a jar of the crud, though the silver is gone.

No one figured out the chirp?

Lots of bikes doing this, seems like lots of us are interested... Nobody ever figured it out? Just for the record, mine does it, 2004 model and has had the water pump update.

chirp away!

Hi,
I have owned a 03,04, and a 05...only the 05 chirped. Its driving me nuts..thought it was loose valves or something. I wonder if its something in the plumbing.. Ah the benefits of having 3 year warranty in Asia. Ride it till it blows up

Clutch...

...throw-rod bearing? Older (90s era) Ducatis would have that bearing begin to go and it would chirp and then eventually squeal like a banshee. I think the odds are low, but...

it's not the ord itself but the cap the end of the rod sits in on the back of the outside pressure plate/cover.

There's also the old stethescope (sic) routine.

Intake?

Sounds like an intake squeak to me.
05.5 non-s, stock exh, cannister removed, SAS still there but disabled, ~2400miles.
Clutch in, click 1st gear, ease clutch out, "chirp, chirp, chirp."
There since day 1. No change after 1st service. More noticeable when cold (choke partially on?), but still barely there when hot. Also more noticeable on an easy take-off, less so on a hard launch.

A mechanic told me he thought it might be the water pump, as he has heard this noise in other bikes. If there is excessive play in the impeller shaft it makes sense that this could be causing the noise. My riding partner has has the exact same noise on his 950 which is a 03, mine is a 04. Are we the only ones who have a canary under the hood?
a mechanic?...a "KTM" mechanic?

that chirping sound is your head gasket & valve train self destructing inside that "state of the art" LC8 engine.

Could the chirp be squeaking rubber in the cush drive?

Perhaps the irritating chirping noise is actually WESFNW's voice after he tried a round of bad ju-ju on all LC8's........

While entertaining as it may be to some, it has been a unsolvable mystery for me since I started this thread.
I just had all my clutch plates replaced along with rod and booster unit, and the f___in carnary is still alive and well.
I now have 24000KM and just got back from a 10 day backroad adventure and I must say that when I'm 200km from the nearest pavement that Canary starts to talk pretty loud to me.
Our bike's performed flawlessly for my friend and I who has the same bike, yet that chirp is hard to put to rest.
Now if I could just solve the low oil pressure to the cam tensioner on a hot motor driven off road? But that's a discussion for another thread if I can find it.

Question chirp cause

A couple weekends back we rode 600 miles and heard a similar sound. At first it appeared to be throttle cable related-like the slack being taken up and then, the carb. slides first mvmt. Later, it seemed that it was related to the upward mvmt of the front forks-under acceleration. Then it seemed that it was just a cable rubbing as the forks came up.

At present the bike is in for service (7500 mile check list), tires and a fork seal. Otherwise it would be tempting to go out and check on the source again.

Ride safe and have a fun 4th
