Whiny Engine


Recommended Posts

As far as driveline noise goes, the only thing I've noticed is a bit of primary drive/primary driven gear whine at around 60 mph in higher gears. Of course this is heard on the right clutch side of the bike, not the chain and sprocket side. The whine was common on the Royal Star Ventures, although it never led to any failures, Yamaha would swap out the clutch baskets for a small number of customers to "move" the whine to a different RPM that the customer may not normally cruise at.

Hey all!  
Just picked up my FJ this week and it's incredible! One thing I noticed is the engine seems to "whine" at certain gears. I haven't noticed a pattern yet. Is this normal? 
Easy fix:  Ear Plugs.

plus a little less reticence with the right wrist, ought to solve the problem nicely.
 
Hope that helps, no charge!
