    Sorry south1...done laughing now.

    Some more info needed. For help here.
    What Speed? RPMs? Maybe get one of those mechanics stethascopes and try to pin point it a little better.
    With some more info....someone here will chime in with more help for ya.

    Yes, more info please.

    Is it definitely engine related? In other words, do you hear the same whining noise when the bike isn't moving and the engine is simply idling?

    Does it stay pretty consistent or change with RPM?

    Do you remember doing any mods or maintenance right before the whining started?
