Will it quite down after break in? If they do make noise it always get better – less noise. You have the 16.07 to 1 gearbox... it should be very smooth and quiet. It should like you might need more grease or it’s just not broke in. Call me sometime when you are able to start it while on the phone.
Hi Max, here is a short video of my "trued" chain ring assembly while in motion and the whine sound that an 18 to 1 Staton gearbox makes while under load after 3 months and about 1,000 miles off road useage, how does my gearbox whine sound compare to yours?................Don
