The whine you describe is normal it can clearly be heard on the rune web under ignition so I wouldn't worry.Skibum said:My RUNE has the very high-pitched whine also. It's not the tires or brakes the whine is there even when I'm stopped. I have only 2000 miles on it (only had it since Oct 1). Has anyone else have this noise and if so what causes it? Cure?
Does anyone know what the Vin#s where on the bikes that have had Alt. trouble? If Honda had some bad castings then the Runes from that run should be on the look out for the same problem.
