I have never owned a gs,are they by nature noisy motors? Lots of ticking and knocking around 3k rpm. But I love the bike and noise doesn't bother me if I know its natural.

Welcome to the forum and GS ownership.

Yes, that sounds about right. Whenever I forget to put my earplugs in the bike sounds like it has a load of loose bits rattling inside it! :)
