The loud whining noise is just normal for vfr 400 because it is gear driven cam.. As you reach 5000rpm up, the bike's electrics try to misfire the plugs so it would act as a speed limiter (180kph).. You have to bypass the sensor at the speedo..

The loud noise is normal mate, even though it might sound like theres a vfr 400 makes the loud whining noise aswell, but nothing is wrong with it

I was riding along on my vfr 400 nc24 when i heard a bad clunk and started belching blue smoke,lots of smoke the bike has competly died now have i blown the engine?

Chances are there is a hole in a piston or a piston ring is broken. A timing chain could have broken or jumped so that a piston hit an open valve. Either way, it is time to visit your dealer.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
