Third Gear Whine

Noticed it last time I was riding, '06 650r, about 2500 miles on bike. Only in third gear, not very loud (yet). I seem to recall that the 600's had a third gear problem of some sort, but haven't heard about anything like that on the 650's. Shifting is perfect, no other problems with the bike. Any ideas?

I noticed my 94' 650L also whining a bit in 3rd. gear only. I have 10k on the bike. I don't notice it much off road but on the street it's easy to hear. What's up? Anyone?
