One of the gearbox whine benefits is that it is a good shift indicator, if the whine noise is too noticable it is an indication that the throttle speed is too high and needs to be reduced before shifting.

Max, how much weight are you going to be pulling with rider, bike, motor/gearbox, trailer, and contents?.........Don
