The noise is from the straight cut gears used on the clutch basket and the primary gear. What you need to do it take it to the Dealer and have them swap out the clutch basket for the "I" clutch basket. This is a known issue with the Yamaha service guys. If the Dealer service doesn’t know about it have him call the regional service rep and they should replace it free of charge. I have an 06 had the problem also. Now it only shows up when slowing down.

Hey Ron, I to have the 2005 Royal Star Tourer Deluxe. I also hear the same. I don’t know.

What is the high pitch whisleing noise coming from the V4 engine. My new Royle Star makes a high pitch whisle that increases with the throttle increase. The Yamaha shop tells me it is just engine noise I have to live with. I don’t know what to belive. Where could this whisleing come from??
