"Whirring" in 5th at 4500 RPM?
Got 500 KM (300 miles) on my Wee and have found that when I'm riding at 80 KM (50 MPH) in 5th at 4500 RPM, there is a rhythmic hum or whirring sound.
Also, it sounded really rough today (hot and humid)-was the first time in 3 days that I took it out and it sounded as if there was no oil. The temperature gauge is consistently running with 4 bars and checked the oil level - the window was still full of that stock mineral stuff, though.
Not knowing much about small engines, are either of these something I should be concerned about?
