Thats the first time i've heard of this problem, must be rare or we would have heard this before now.

There are posts on this site about the problem from last summer. Some alternators whine pretty loud(telltale sign they are not shimmed properly) and then fail. biggest problem with that is they can take out the case if they let go in grenade fashion.

Hi.

Is it normal, that the alternator whines all the time?

It does loads the battery and otherwise seems to work.

I didn't have that kind of sound on R1 or any other
bike I have had.

And since there was pointed out, that changing
alternator gears would cure it, made me think if
that whineis normal?
