I am experiencing a whine/howl noise in my 2011 650 Versys. My dealer says it is not a problem, but I see others have the same symptom. Only in 3rd gear and at approx. 3500rpms. Has anyone heard that this is in fact a problem, or just a normal characteristic of the bike.
I am a new member and was not able to respond to any existing threads.

Thanks!

I have an 09 V and a 10V. Both have had a "whine" since new. All the early symptoms of "clunky" shifts, whining, and vibrations were greatly reduced after a couple of thousand miles and switching to synthetic oil (I used Amsoil). Never a hint of a problem.

hay man, read my thread here. there's a sound bite, maybe you can confirm if this is the same noise? Mine is only in third gear, as well, and it may have calmed down a little bit(now at 3500mi) but it's still there
