Dude, its probably just your brain trying to figure out what bike you are riding now...... You must change bikes more than your underwear, oops, I forgot, you are from Saltspring. Either dont wear undies, or something made of hemp material.

It's happened on my SY's in the past - a likely cause is the clutch plates not fully disengaging - change the trannie fluid for your favoured type - 10/40 gear oil, ATF or Light gear all - all work ok, then spray a little degreaser on the clutch actuating arm (top of left side crank case) followed by some WD 40. The clutch arm can get a bit gritty and stick so the plates don

Had five new Scorpas SY 250s from when they were released till I changed to Gas Gas and all had the whine. The same can be heard in the 90s Yamaha TYZs that this motor was originally used in. Dont be to concerned, if you had been around to hear the whine of the Aprilla Trials bikes you wouldnt give yours a second thought. ;)

ell, I've heard the whine before and betas have similiar sound, but mine is especially LOUD...but no biggy....the motor makes up for it

I was watching the video of ryan young on scorpa page....test riding the 08......it made no whining sound ....this is what threw me off .......Thanks masso
