    New 2021 XR with whining noise

    Hey everyone,

    Got a gorgeous white 2021 XR...   HOWEVER it has a relatively loud whining noise mainly on second gear low RPMs.

    Already 3 days at the BMW dealer who is sending pictures and video to BMW.. they took apart the clutch and say it is something which loads the engine.  Very concerned here.

    Did anyone have such a noise?  What can it be?

    Cheers
    Isaac

    Have a look on you tube for reviews of the 2020 S1000XR and 2019 S1000RR, you can clearly hear it.

    Exactly, mine could be louder. I work at a dealer, so I think I might be in a better position to give a constructive opinion.

    Or his could be substantially louder. You're the one who told him it is fine, but you have no clue what his sounds like.

    If it was abnormally loud tech support would have asked for recordings and already made a determination that the gearbox was faulty and directed the dealer to submit a claim for repair.
    The OP did ask if others have they noise, which they do, hence my response.
