New Motor Trike & Differential Whine?

Post by Uralguy »



Hi,

Just got my 2017 Honda GL1800 Motor Trike, This is first time riding the trike and noticed the differential whine, I have nothing to compare it with. Also noticed under load of acceleration it whines.
Is this because I'm sitting closer(over it). In a car you have lots of sound dampening between you and the melon

Thanks
Bill

There shouldn't be a whine in it. Call motortrike about it(the factory).
Have you talked to the installer about it and had him test ride it? His answer was???
Now, the definition of a whine, actually your definition??? Subject to change person by person.

Never had the chance to ride it, bought the bike and MT shipped the kit directly, dealer did the complete installation,it has the Independant suspension.

As said have the dealer check it out. If you still are not satisfied call motortrike
