Not an R7, next best thing!!
S0 my 2016 R1 has 4373 mile on it and this Sunday as my brother and I were heading out for a nice long ride she began making this very loud click/clanking noise. I stopped as soon as I heard it. We called for evac and trucked her back home. I swapped my 09 manual CCT for the OEM one on my 2016, hoping it was a complete failure of the CCT, but that didn't fix it. "It" sound like the engine is simply killing herself...so hard to listen to. Since I bought her used from a non Yami dealership, and I no doubt believe the so called aftermarket (non-OEM) warranty she came with is garbage, bases on all the reviews I have read today (yeah of course I didn't research the warranty company when I bought the bike because the warranty was free...so called lifetime power train). With what little mileage that is on her, what is the likelihood that Yamaha will fix her and take responsibility for the defect. There is no reason in the world this bike should be in its current state. I got her with 1880 miles and I have put on the other 2500 miles. Has anyone had any experience with this type of issue.
