Noise when in gear at idle

My 08 X2 has a squeaking noise noise when in gear and idle RPM. Almost a nails down chalk board sound. As soon you get on the throttle it goes away. If you put it back in neutral the noise goes away as the prop stops turning. I always assumed this was normal but a friend riding with me this weekend seems to think it is not. It is almost a harmonic sound resonating through the hull if that makes sense. It's not terribly loud but you can definitely hear it clearly in the boat. Any ideas?

Hey,

every Tranny i ever run in my MCs was a bit noisy. Dont worry too much..

Check Transmission Oil and Oil Level.

There was a Thread in wich was said, that another Oil in the Tranny (i believe 15W40 Engine Oil) could stop most noises in the Transmission.

Do you have the ZF Hurth?

I am 99% sure it is the ZF but I will double check. This noise sounds like metal on rubber perhaps? Tough to explain and my video did not turn out.
