At about 150 miles, my Deluxe has developed a "whine" when I take off from a stop. I am guessing the belt or clutch. I try to get into the throttle quickly to engage the belt on the clutch quickly. A little more noticeable in high than in low range, but there in both. Once moving and RPMs are up, it goes away. Is this normal? Anyone else experience this? It is a "whine" not a "wine". I would be ok with a "wine":smile2:

Mine whistles at about 50mph. I think it is a combo of the light bar and windshield. About time to take out window for summer so I will find out.

Mine is not like that. It occurs when I am starting out from a stop. I assume the belt.

I took the advice of Alaskan47 and am using LOW range even 10-15mph. Above that, I am in HIGH.

I have the same issue on a 2017 general delux . Im running 28 inch outlaw 2s . I ended up putting a epi clutch kit in it but seems to be making more noise and the clutches running hotter. I had a 2016 general delux that i was running the same rubber witout the clutch kit and it would chatter on take off and whine .
