Strange noise
on: November 05, 2016, 08:46:31 PM
My 2014 makes an intermittent noise when switched off. Sounds a bit like the fuel pump when you first turn on the ignition only muted and quieter and only lasts about one second. I thought at first it could be the fuel system releasing pressure but it's still doing it 7 days after it's last run.

Very strange, any thoughts?

Thanks Skids, that's good to know it's not just me. I'll have to ask about it next service.

Please let us know what they say.

My main concern would be that it is somehow drawing power from the battery to do it which will drain the battery over extended periods when not in use.

I have it too, it is audible for ages after turning the bike off. I was going to ask at the first service
VFR800X (just a bit quicker than the 500X)

Mine too :) More noticeable in hot days. I just open the fuel tank lid and close it again to relieve the pressure :007: Noise gone.

Its just the pressure build up in the tank as far as I know. Perfectly normal. Some bikes make a really BIG noise  :021:

Only happens on hot days on my bike.
