Post Gear Noise
Hi Folks!
I've been riding my scoot about 40miles a day 4-5 times a week for the last year and a half. Lately my gears in the back end sound more 'geary'?

When I hit around 31m/h it sounds like a small turbine is spooling up.

When I hand spin the tire slowly I can feel and hear the gears if that makes sense. I don't perceive any performance changes.

Rear end oil change = normal, no metal shavings same as usual color

Anyone know what might cause this? Thanks!

Have you changed the gear oil?
