I just got home with my new orange FZ-09!!! Its my first bike in 3 years. Last bike was a Buell XB12s. Totally different and loving it!

Got a quick question... Is the gearbox supposed to sound like straight cut gears sometimes? Mine seems like it whines really loud in a couple gears. Mainly 3rd and 6th i think.

Hope thats normal!

Cant wait to do a few mods.

The 09 has straight cut gears as is normal for motorcycle transmissions. Lots of 09 riders comment about hearing a whine, it tends to get better with several thousand miles.

Oh, congrats and welcome to the forum.

Noticed this on mine too, in 6th at around 60-70 mph mainly. I wondered if it was airbox hiss but could be gearbox too. Noticed it on my street triple too, but not on other bikes. Suspect it is a case of 'they all do that Sir', and nothing to worry about.
