Orion Sirius EQ-G mount swishing sound

I just bought an Orion Sirius EQ-G mount. It seems to work fine except when tracking (at normal speed, not slewing) there is a slight swishing sound (it sounds like something on the motor shaft rubbing on something). Anybody out there with a Sirius EQ-G, is this normal?
