Noise

Took my boy for a ride yesterday and he said he likes the bike because it sounds like a spaceship. I asked what he meant and he said it makes a "wa wa wa" sound. Anyone have a similar sound or know what it is?

Could be the fan but its a continuous noise or when you drop down to first gear it makes a whine also, I would think kind of a spaceship sound.
Good luck!

Are you downshifting too soon into first? You can hear the high revs running down if you downshift into 1st too soon. That's the only thing I could think of...

I do notice it when decelerating but it's not specific to first gear.
