Hi all

Was out riding around today when I noticed a sort of high pitch whine coming from the left side of the bike. It's mostly noticeable around 100kmh or so (after that the exhaust and the wind probably drowns it out). Pulling the clutch makes no difference and it definitely seems to be speed dependant and not rev dependant.

It's probably nothing, but thought I'd ask anyway.

Thanks,
V

The clutch is on the right side. The stator and output shaft from the transmission is on the left.

Speed dependent, left side noise? Countershaft related: likely chain/sprocket or (at worst) output shaft bearing. If it were RPM dependent I'd look at the stator (provided it's not a gen 1)

Ah yes, apologies, couldn't set signature yet. Gen 3 (2008). Only has 11k kms at the moment. Any obvious checks I can do?

Another thing I have noticed, it does "struggle" a little changing gears sometimes (up or down). I did read somewhere on the forum that that is usually an indication that it needs an oil change, so will probably do an oil change over the week end.
