I may be crazy, but I'm starting to feel like I'm hearing alot of whining in all the gears above 4k. Almost like reverse in a manual transmission. Is this normal? Am I just now noticing what's always been there? I only have about 400 of the 1000 miles on this bike. Chain tension is ok and oil level is good. Hmmmm

I've never heard a Yammie transmission that didn't whine, given the straight-cut gears. It's a fine line between motorcycle and musical instrument.

Getting a second pair of ears on it will either confirm your fears or calm them. Probably the latter.

Also depends on the rpm vs speed... the more you are dogging it at low speed and in a high gear will amplify it !!
