On a new (06)XB9SX (60 Miles) what might be the cause of a VERY loud, gear-type whine, when decelerating at slow speeds. I've ridden new XB's before and the gear whine is not nearly as bad. It only really occurs at slow speeds. Also, it's very hard to find neutral. Could an overfilled primary cause this? Primary chain adjustment? Anyone have any insights? Thanks!
