    Strange question,

    I recently bought a new V7 III Stone and I noticed that the engine often makes a sound like George Jetsons car. I kind of like it, lol, but I'm just wondering if this is normal?!

    I already added my VIN.
    And I searched for "Jetson" but didn't see anything, haha.

    This is not a cooling tick, it's while I'm riding and it's a straight up space ship sound!

    And no, I'm not smoking anything!

    Any chance you could record and post the sound? I have a V7 III Anniversario and cannot think of anytime it has sounded like the Jetson's car. I wonder of you are hearing the valves ticking away?

    Jetson's car made a whurlling, ticking sound. I'd say it's fine, normal.
