Ok, I just went driving tonight. The whine does increase as I accelerate and it seems to go away if I pull the clutch in, so I guess it is the final drive. I don't know if our bikes normally make a whine/whistle kind of sound like a sport bike when we accelerate.
Also, I noticed my bike makes a knocking sound that seems to come from the front right(as close as I can tell) of the bike when I'm driving. But if I put the bike up on the center stand and go through the gears and get the tach up the engine sounds great no knocking at all. Kind of confusing.
This bike has a little over 2600 miles on it. I replaced the fuse box to fix a not working cooling fan. I was having an idling problem late last week, the bike would jump up in rpms on its own. I put 3.5 ounces of sea foam in the gas tank, and that seems to have corrected the idle problem. There is some surface rust in my gas tank, the only thing that is not working on the bike at this point is the fuel gauge, the guage itself works when jumpered, I have a sending unit to replace the old one but have not done that yet. Just trying to give all the info I have about this bike so far. Thanks!
