I've noticed on my 06 YZ450 that there is sometimes some transmission "whine".
It's mainly on decel, not that loud, but if you listen for it, you can hear it.
The closest thing I can compare it to is the whining my manual Mustang makes...

Is a little bit of noise normal?

The clutch seems to be engaging fine, it still stalls out if i let it out in first without throttle, and downshifting I can still get a bump...

Any ideas?

10, if that....

I just changed the oil with Yamalube 4-R.....could that be a reason?

yeah it might be the oil.......... or maybe its just getting broke in.

Ive heard of this happening on crf's when they get a certain amount of time

on them.

Nothing to worry about:thumbsup:

Well that's good to know.
Grayracer said that Yamalube isnt such a good oil (but I had bottles of it from my old 250F, so I gotta use it up...)
I'll get some better oil next change and just "lose" the other oil...

The bike still runs like a raped ape.. It's a beast....LOL
