    Be very careful. A buddy and I were putty around town and hit the bar. After about ten beers we headed out and as my friend fired up his 2001 GS I heard the faintest little sound. I was having trouble discerning whether it was the bike or my new wrist watch. I told him then he should probably not ride home and have the bike towed due to the noise. He didn't listen and on the way home his left cylinder blew out and took his leg clean off from the knee down. Sucks for him but he does have a bad ass new pirate style peg leg now. :freaky

    Your Youtube sounds normal. You may want to check the alternator belt.
