Strange Winding Noise

I've been starting to hear a strange winding noise when the bike starts to engine brake. I can hear it slightly under the engine rev'ing, so it might be happening when I'm accelerating too, but I just can't hear it. Anyone know what this is?

Everything sounds fine to me

Maybe you're hearing the front sprocket?

Clark, I believe that is called transmission whine. It is usually more apparent when you have racing gears(especially with cars). It is just the way the gears are spinning and how they are cut. By cut I mean how they are designed to connect and engage when the clutch/gearshift moves to the next gear position.

I'm probably just starting to hear things, but listening to everyone is very re-assuring heheh. This is the first time I've honestly heard it, and now that PowerGroove mentions it, it might indeed be the front sprocket. I'm running -1 front, +2 rear, but maybe I just never noticed the noise before.

I've been hypersensitive about anything that seems out of place on my bike since it's about 10 years old now, and just broke 25k miles. She still has all the pep in the world though, and I love her just as much as the day I first got her.

Thanks guys!

Good time to make sure the chain tension is correct; preferably on the loose side of correct.

Not sure if trolling or not...

I actually just installed an APE CCT which is another reason I'm probably on edge. My mechanic said it sounds good, but just from listening to the video, does it sound alright to you? The CCT definitely fixed the ticking I had before, and I pretty much followed the whole "tighten finger tight, check it, tighten until no tick, 1/4 turn more, lock it". This seemed to be pretty good, but not sure what the "tight whining" would sound like.

I remember hearing mine a lot more when I swapped out from the stock front sprocket too. Aftermarket are less material so they can be a little noisier.

Sounds like you take care of your bike very well.
