Really strange, but when I am in 4rth or 5th I am getting this really hi pitched ringing sound coming from my gear box (i think). Has anyone heard of anything like this?

i had purchased the bike used at 5800 miles this year (its an 04) and the previous owner said the last change was at about 3000. I plan on changing the oil in the next week for winterization........

Yeh mine rings there too....I've heard other R6 boxes here do it also.

It generally means I need a service :) Once I have changed the oil and filter it goes quiet again (remeber the gears and clutch are sitting in the same oil as the rest of your engine)

its defintely not the keys ringing (take everything off except for the bike key so it doesn't scratch the triple), its more like a weird high pitch hum.. so weird sounding, hoping that an oil change will do something. thanks either way.....

Yeh it's your gearbox dude...The 05 R1's do it too.

They are pretty whiney at the best of times....

As long as the gears still shift smoothly (or as smooth as the R6 gets) don't stress about it.

Try the oil change and see how it goes.
