Default Rear whining at low speed

Not sure I this is normal as I am still adjusting to the subtleties of the bike still.

In first gear around 8 mph if I am decelerating there is a rear whine coming from I am not sure where. Wanted to know if this is normal. I'm gonna have em check it out Saturday when I get my pipes put on just in case.

Lol I was thinking that. Doing some reading sounds like its just being belt driven and the low speeds. So I'm not too worried.

Hey Dri, that whine wouldn't be coming from the passenger seat, would it? =)

Hilarious. I don't have a passenger seat. The wife doesn't wanna ride. I'm slowly breaking her down though.

I get the same thing on mine. I noticed in the parking lot right off the showroom floor a few weeks ago. I figured new belt breaking in...just ride. I asked them to check it out when I took it back to the dealer for the 500 mi inspection and they told me that it is belt noise and that it will get quieter after being fully broke in. When they said "quieter", I took that as it will always make some noise. Just like the motor and just like the tranny. These bikes are noisy but AWESOME!

Ya it does it but only at super low speeds so they said its normal with belt drive and no belt wear was present...I am not worried about it

If it does it especially after you've been riding for 5 to 10 minutes, the belt tension could be too tight. I would check that first.

What Gunslinger said, I too am getting used to the new sounds. I have never had a bike with a belt, so it is all new. The woo, woo, woo at slow speeds drives me batty, but a belt adjustment helped a whole lot. It is still there, and I usually find it in either brake, but at least the belt is right now.
New sounds and feel, kind of reminds me of a 197? Ford, but they all have their quirks and sounds. My Royal Star used to sound like a bag of rocks was loose in the front bake pads, so if I could get used to that I think this will be OK.
Try to enjoy the new ride.
