    Jangly noise upon acceleration - 2013 GTS300 Super

    I'm betting it is most likely normal; but, I haven't noticed it before and it seems to have become more noticeable.

    When I accelerate and am cruising on-throttle, I can hear a slight "jangly" (not really a rattle) sound.

    All else works fine and it accelerates as good as it ever has. I would guess it has to do with the clutch and/or the variator rollers.

    This is separate form the slight pre-detonation I hear from running lean (fat-duc for a 2013 and up yet?).

    Anyway, I'm hoping someone else can assure me that it is normal.

    Regards,
    -Don

    I only have 2,600ish miles on mine; but, I am thinking it's normal. Probably the variator rollers and clutch. I have not had the cover off yet to inspect it, but I will soon.
    Thanks for the reply.
