I own a 2015 N1K. I went to put my bike cover on at work on a 97 degree day in Georgia, and noticed a noise that sounds like a light whistle or whirring coming from my gas tank. Is this from my tank getting hot and venting? Has anyone else heard this before? This is my first sport bike, and I've never noticed this before. The bike was in locked position, and key removed.

thanks,
Adam

Unusual Noises

I have a 2014...and when she is cooling down after a hard ride I also hear a whirling noise that changes in pitch for a minute of so. Not sure if its the tank venting or some other pressure release...

Yep, tank venting. Opening the fuel cap allows for a quick release of pressure as well. Mine always does it after a ride, and was a bit disconcerting until I worked out what it was.
