Has anybody else noticed that if coasting with the clutch pulled in that when you reach 1st gear on the click down the motorcycle makes a high pitched whine style of sound (very soft noise)? I wonder if its just my bike that does this?
Thats how I know I am finally in first gear while the clutch is pulled in. I clutch-in coast almost exclusively when approaching red lights
Motorcycles use straight cut gears in their transmissions so they will make a whining sound. It is most noticeable in first gear.
