2003 CCT Replacement-done-question
After reading a bunch of posts about CCT failure, I maybe needlessly replaced the CCT in my 2003 with almost 40k on the clock. Engine wasn't making any weird, unusual, or loud noises, but, well, I did it anyway. Aside from it being a time consuming royal pain in the ass I had no major problems and I got it back together, with no leaks! I have now noticed a humming sound, for lack of a better term, at idle. Sounds like when the cooling fan kicks in, just not quite as loud. Really hard to pin point. Maybe front of engine? Maybe at the rear/mufflers? Can't tell. When I raise the RPM it goes away. Did not hear this sound before the CCT replacement. Maybe it's a co-incidence, and would have happened whether I replaced the CCT or not.
Any thoughts from you more experienced FJR jockeys?
