If the motorcycle is totally silent when powered on (turning the key does more than just turn on the dash board - it is turning on the entire bike) then something is wrong with it.

You will get total silence when the ECU is unplugged or when the battery is too discharged to cycle the fuel pump, exhaust valve servo, suspension solenoids and the ABS pump.
If your fuel level is very low and the bike is on its side stand you can have the fuel pump make odd dry siphon noises.
If you hold the throttle open while the bike is powered on but not running the throttle body motor will create an odd whining sound.

But a totally silent motorcycle on power up is not correct. There will be some sort of noise emitted by a number of components.

BTW, the exhaust servo, ABS pump, IMU, EVAP solenoid and fuel pump all occupy a small enough area that any, some or all of them can be thought to be producing the sound being heard.

Any chance this is the solenoid for the exup valve, doing its thing?
Sound seems to be coming from IMU but if I place my ears directly on the muffler, I can hear the clicks but very faint, as if it was far away. This led me to think it is not EXUP.

Clicking noise gone, but there was a definite hum, originating from the IMU area...

Once the bike starts, I can't hear any of it, no warning lights are flashing, probably normal behavior.
Glad it's gone for you.

When engine is running, the sound of the engine drowns everything else (even if it's there) because the clicks are very faint.
Yes, dashboard is clean, no messages.

Strangely enough, when I turned ON the dashboard only just now, there is not a single sound --- dead silence. Absolutely mind-boggling. No idea what the cause is but the clicks are now not reproducible at will.

UPDATE : ~42 MPG
Now that I have more data points, I am getting around 42 MPG for the bike; so, that works out to around $0.07 per mile.

Incidentally, based on Fuelly's averaging, this MPG is close to a 2015 Prius.
Considering that this bike can challenge the Tesla Ludicrous Mode and has a Prius MPG, that's not bad ... at all.

Installed this bar-ends (which is more than twice the weight of the OEM) and handle vibrations dropped to 10-15% of the original level; hardly noticeable now.

artthury, have you done the first oil change yet? I'm happy to report that, at least on mine, it appears that the Honda employee who attached the oil filter to my 2013 CBR 600RR is still with the company and still has their 5 foot long oil wrench extender so that the oil filter is on extra tight, wow they get that thing on tight!! I was able to wrangle it off finally but there was a bit of panic when the OEM filter deal that fits on the filter had the nut break off. Strangely enough, the filter from the factory on my 2013 CBR 1000RR came off nice and easy...

I put it on hand tight then a smidge more after that, no leaks after 100 miles or so, should be good to go. I will add that I had a much easier time of removing the lower cowl on the 2019 than the 2013 1000RR, that 2013 lower cowl was an absolute nightmare for me and putting it back on was always the longest part of the oil change. Need four hands, seven eyes and X-ray vision to maneuver those tabs around.

I can report the same mileage you are seeing on the 2019 which was about the same mileage I got with my 2013 as long as I don't romp around on it too much.

Very true. They don't want that thing coming off!

For surety, they use the rear axle nut torque setting!!:D

It's probably a robot that installs the OEM oil filter. Excessively tight filters have been a common complaint among owners doing the first service themselves, that's why I let the dealership do the first one. I torque my oil filter and drain plug to spec when I do my oil changes.

No, I have not, my bike's odometer has not hit 400 miles but I have been riding it, at least, once every 2 days, sometimes more. And, I'm doing my heat-cycle thingy as well daily.

That is crazy off-factory specs. Have they not heard of weight-adjusted wrench? Did you look at the bolt threads? May be they put Loctite on it. :ROFLMAO:
I'm now thinking if I can find a 3rd-party bolt that is magnetic so it can attract metallic debris and keep the OEM one somewhere.
This was the response I got from this Forum when I asked for recommendations for the most trustworthy dealer shops in my area:

Good to know. I'll keep that in mind when I remove the lower cowl of my 2005.

Incidentally, I'm getting only 36 MPG for my 2005 CBR that has around 2,500 miles. What a gas-guzzler! :giggle:

Count yourself lucky. That's about twice as much as my 1999 FireStorm/SuperHawk returns.

I've owned V8s with better economy - but not as much fun I should add.

I've got another OEM filter remover on the way, when that gets here I'm going to make sure it's torqued to spec, I don't trust my hand tighten gauge.

Could you post a picture of it when you get it, please?

Oh .. this one.
Yes, I have one of these. It's std across most Honda vehicles (including their 4 wheelers, I think).

That's the one--I should have put a couple extra welds on it, the nut snapped off trying to remove the filter that shipped with the bike.

I bought an aftermarket one (from eBay) which seem to be thicker on the outside and heavier, too.
I also have one of these that serves as a backup if the cap-wrench does not work; but, this should only be used for removing only because it can crush the filter can.

The 'one of these' saved my bacon--got that filter right off! Well, it took some effort, but it had all the grip I needed.

This will be the last time I change the oil on a new bike at 11:35 PM on a Wednesday LOL.

I had to stab a screwdriver into my filter doing the first change. Was not fun especially because I was doing it at 7am before a ride with some buddies! I only install and remove filters by hand otherwise.
