I am about to purchase a 2008 BMW F650 800 with 34000 kms...pristine conditine.
With the bike vertical and me astride, I started the engine and after a minute or so a significant whining noise started. This noise increased in pitch with the engine revs. I think it abated when I pulled in the clutch but I cannot recall.
Should I be concerned? I am not familiar with these engines, but I thinking can tensioner, alternator or clutch.
Any pointers from those with exprience please. I want to avoid a possible expensive mistake.
