My 2009 developed a gear whine after several thousand thousand km's.
I removed the rear wheel, cleaned up the gears, and applied Honda moly paste.
I also changed engine/trans/rear drive oil to full synthetic.
No more whine.

I've heard good things about Amsoil and Moly used in final drive in another forum back when I had a shaft driven cycle (speaking of which, why didn't Suzuki go with the more durable less maint. shaft drive vs the belt drive?). I haven't had any trouble just using a full synthetic final drive oil and have not messed with it yet and no problems, not even at 1k miles though. Good luck getting it resolved.

I have had gear whine in my 04 650 and the same noise in my 2012 since day one. In fact the 2012 is noisier than my 04 was. Can't really tell if its engine,transmission or rear drive. I am assuming they all do it.
