    I need more information about your noise. Is it a constant noise whose pitch increases with the bike's speed? It is a noise whose pitch increases with the engine rpms? Has the bike been lowered? Have you checked to see if anything is hung up in the frame around the final drive belt? Does the noise change if you pull in the clutch?

Whining noise at speed 35/40 left front side wheel 2000 infinity qx4


Try driving at 35/40, so you can hear the noise, try swerving (just a little) to the left, if the noise goes away, when you swerve, you most likely have a bad wheel bearing on that side.

If your talking about a whining noise while driving over 20mph, it's probably a wheel bearing noise, I have written an article and created a video about wheel bearing noises, it will give you a better understanding of what it is and the noises it can make.

Hello.

Switch the monitors on your video card to see if the monitor or the video card port is the problem. If the same problem occurs on the left side with a different monitor, the video port is problematic. If the problem switches to the right side, the monitor is problematic.

Or, hook one monitor at a time to test on the right and left sides.

Hope this helps.

Whining sound from front passenger side.


Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.
