Problem: Bike makes turbo spool sound.. but i have no turbo!

I just bought the bike about 3 weeks ago from Mancuso SW. Rode fine up until about yesterday.. When I ride at about 50mphish between 3kish-4.5k it hear a sound that sounds kind of like a turbo spooling up.. but not quite as loud. Problem is I don't have a turbo!

I can't seem spot where the sound is coming from because at 50mph windblast kind of muffles out my ability to locate the source of the sound. Any idea what it might be?

Bike is a Kawi Ninja 650r btw. Year 2008 if it helps any.

That's good advice!

Some bikes have certain gears that are straight cut instead of helical. This can make the transmission whine in certain gears at certain rpm/loads. Try to identify if it is happening in any gear or just a couple.
If it is the trans, then it's not a problem just the way it is.

^^^^good point.

U have a warranty? Use it.

Try to diagnose conditions before listening to specific items.

As mentioned above, does it do it in every gear? is this speed or engine speed related?

When you hear the sound and pull in the clutch, drop the throttle, does it go away? or is in the engine?

Is the chain too tight?

Okay, while riding home from school I tried to find the problem more specifically. Like mentioned above, it makes the sound only at 3rd gear+ at 40-55mphish at 3kish-5kish. It sounds like a fast rattling/whining sound (turbo spool almost, just not as loud). I am taking it there tomorrow. Thanks a lot guys.

Make sure you have at least 1" - 1.25" play in your chain, it may be too tight.

That may be it also.. It's too late for me to check though. now I can't sleep. I'm just going to lay there and keep worrying/thinking about that noise. So many factors that may cause the noise...

It seems likely seeing as how it began shortly after you adjusted the chain.

Okay, so I cleaned up my chain to see if anything was wrong with the chain.. and this is what I found.

photo0077fz

Now this is my first bike.. So I'm no bike expert, but I'm sure my sprocket's teeth aren't supposed to look like that. Is it normal? If not, how would I go about repairing it?
