I took a little cruise today, about 70 miles and found that the sound is still there even with the clutch pulled in, engine at idle. I'm sure it's a tire whine since it gets less as I coast to a stop.
Thanks for all the replys. I'm sure I'll come up with something else to worry about soon enough...just my nature I suppose.
