Was out for a ride today and didn't have any music or book going in my helmet. I heard the tranny whining when pulling about 2700 to 3000 rpms in 4th only. The rest of the gears were sounded great. There was no disrupt in the power and the bike ran smooth. I remember a friend was riding behind me last year and he said that he could hear it. Anything to worry about?

Occasionally a member will complain about the same, and I'd like to hear one of these. I cannot say that I've ever heard a tranny whine on a 5th gen.

I have a whinning or singing on my 06. I've heard this on other wings. Starts about 2,000 rpm. Could this be the alternator? My riding buddy says I sound like the Jetson mobile.

Most of the whining I've heard about on here is from a few 1800 owners who make it their lives work to troll.

What makes you think I'm a troll. I have posted many times here and check in daily. I have better things to do with my time than to troll a motorcycle forum.

Apologies. I was referring to the many trolls who frequent the board and whine about the things they don’t have or can’t afford.
