Question for you therman. Do you hear the whining noise while the bike is running but not moving & if so does the sound change when you rev it up?

When I bought my 1500, I complained about the tranny whine so much, my mechanic got tired of hearing it.

He said, that is just normal for a transmission with straight cut gears. Go ride it like you stole it.

funny thing, about 10,000 miles later, I never heard that whine anymore.

There is something you can do to quiet it down.

change the oil to chevron delo 400, 15w40. works a charm

Welcome to the forum Therman! All Wings have a whining noise when your cruising. it is due to the gears in the tranny meshing very closly together.Honda has a very tight tolerance in their machining which is actually a mark of high quality.

but if you dont like it, I will trade you for my Harley!!!!!:cheeky1:
