I've heard of people having it and just thought it was a wine. It's definitely not a wine. It sounds exactly like a high speed bearing that is about to go out and it's LOUD. It only happened once while trail riding but man that sucker was sounding off.
Sure glad I bought the extended warranty.
Now I'd like to get some info on the rest of the guys that either know someone who had a tranny failure or got the wine and had the tranny go out yourself.
If you would please post the dealership you took it to to get fixed and their phone number. If you have a mechanic name that would help. I always like to be prepared when I take mine in. If they say they have never heard of it I'll point them to several dealerships. Nothing like going hunting loaded for bear.
I can tell you this. Changing oil WILL NOT make this go away. It may mask it but it's definately a problem.
