I have an xedge and when I am slowing down I have a whining it sounds like it might be in the breaks but I am not sure could the chain be to tight. I just had a new track instaled as well jus twounding what you guys might think It is a 600 e edge Marty

Learn to live with it. Unless you want to regear it to lessen the chain angle.

Pretty sure its a gear whine. My xcr whines like mad when slowing down. Its just something you have to put up with.

My XC's do it too. I always thought it was coming from the brakes.

Ive gotten used to it and use as a medium to gauge how hard I am running in the twistys. The harder the pull, the louder the whine. I would be handicapped without it.

My XLT does the same exact thing. I myself like the whine noise.

My Pro X2 and my Vector both do it. I have heard loosening the tension on the chain will lessen the noise.

Does it sound like that towards the end of the video? I think I was applying my brakes there too.

To stay with same drive ratio go to 22/37 gears with a 72 pitch chain. You have to grind a little off the back side of tensioner to make it fit. If you want to increase ratio try 23/40. No wine at all. Or enjoy the whine like some do.

Every Polaris I have been on has a more noticible whine than other brands I have ridden. My gf old wedge isnt bad at all, but my friends have both a xc 500 and xc 700 Gen II, they both have a really noticibly loud whine to them.
