Re: 120 miles and whine in 2nd gear?

Get it checked mate, but....................

I was forced to leave work early yesterday and do a 100 mile run in the sunshine. Now you mention it, my Blade sounds like it is supercharged in second gear when winding on the power. Only in second though, just like yours.

I use that description to see if it matches your sound. Deffo a whine in second.

Mine has 450 miles on now.

Does yours do it to the extreme when you throttle off in 2nd mate? Its weird that its only 2nd gear and like you said its quite an extreme whine. My dealer checked it out yesterday and said he will listen again at my 1st service which is next tuesday, didn't say anything else about it so all very vague. At least its not just mine!

Re: 120 miles and whine in 2nd gear?

I would say that I notice it more when gassing on rather than off.

TBH, I quite like the sound. Hope that doesn't sound too wierd.

Off throttle I notice more transmission noise on mine than anything else but that isn't helped by the fact that the chain needs adjusting. I just hate doing it and with the first service so near, feel free to do it for me Mr. Honda tech

Re: 120 miles and whine in 2nd gear?

Mine does the same so i wouldn't overworry.Whats getting my goat is the very on/off throttle and that feeling on low throttle positions of the it suddenly dying and then picking up.When you cranked right over it can be a bit concerning.Apart from that this bike is well fat.

Mate, these are very minor niggles and just part of the process of learning to live with your new bike.

Make no mistake, the 08 Blade is an awesome piece of machinery.

I love mine.

It makes mince meat of my 07 R1 and no other blade before this 08 tempted me away from Yamaha so Honda must have done something right. I don't have the on off throttle thing mid corner! blades before this 1 did suffer with that but this 08 is fine The whine is weird and lets see what Honda say about it.

Stu does yours do it to the extreme when you throttle down only in 2nd or both on and off the gas in 2nd?

Re: 120 miles and whine in 2nd gear?

I said to my dealer that I thought that the throttle could be snatchy at low speed, and he said that it is a massive improvement over previous models ??

I put it down to being in say 2nd when I should be in 1st to get the engine revs spinning higher.

Like I say, I have 450 miles on mine and am only just learning how she likes to be treated. After a v-twin naked I am back in education mode

Normally just on and off the throttle however mine was dying big time and this was to do with a faulty cam position sensor which is a known fault according to Honda.I would suggest a trip to the doctor as their plug in and play diagnostic computer with find that fault straight away.bon chance.

This doesn't exactly relate but my 2002 954 has always had a whine in 2nd gear only. still whines now w/ 35k miles on it. gear box hasn't given me any problems other that a little whining.
