5th gear noise
So I've been considering keeping my 1999 650 vstar but the noise I get in 5th gear drives me a little batty. I've read where people believe it to be the cut of the gears and I think that this may be the case-sounds like it comes from the front of the engine and only in 5th gear when on the gas.

My question is has anyone replaced the gears and gotten the noise to go away? If so which gears did you use and what else would you do while you were in there? Thanks for any info.

I'm kind of wondering now if this is fifth gear or the AIS system. I've heard there is a reed inside of it and the sound I hear would be much like blowing air across a reed. Does anyone repair these or just bypass-remove?
