I just bought a 1993 GL 1500 with 60,000 miles and I am wondering if what sounds like transmission wine is normal for these bikes. I notice it more in the 2-3 and 3-4 gear range.

hi mtc, could be the coupler the connects the rear wheel to the final drive, try leaning left or right when riding to see if the noise changes. the drive splines are known to wear. good luck.

Hi mtc
I ride a 95 A with 156,000 miles on it and it too has a slight whine. It depends on how loud it is. If it is fairly faint I consider it normal. I woulddnt expect a wear problem at 60,000 unless maintenance has been neglected. But, any thing is possible. The above posts are good advise.
