HI, The bike has lost power. RPM's increase as throttle is increased, but power not manifested in forward motion. I can hear the engine whine high, but the speedo and speed of bike is nothing but a slow gathering of momentum.

Engine making whining noise

There are a couple of things to check. If your power steering pump is low on fluid, or a bad bearing is in the Alternator, they will whine. The PCV valve or any hole in the Vacuum lines will whine as RPM is increased. Even having the Air filter box not fully seated will make a whining noise.

Now both automatic and manual transmissions can whine as RPM is increased. Check fluid for each.

Serpetine belt and pulleys-can make noise.

Sometimes you can shift into neutral at any speed and the engine rpm will drop almost instantly as the car rolls at speed. If the problem disappears as soon as the rpm drops, then an engine part probably is the reason.
