High pitched whistle

Hi guys,

I bought a 2007 Versys last week ( my first big bike after passing my test) and there seems to be a high pitched whistle coming from the engine when riding. It seems fairly constant i.e. it doesent change with the revs, anyone have any ideas?

thanks:confused

One of my old bikes had a loud squeal which ended up being a compression leak, lose head. It was loud..... A quiet high pitch noise could be the fuel pump... does it run well?

Yeah, runs fine. It is more annoying than troublesome.

Normal Versys noise, no need for concern.

Also referred to as a sewing machine sound

Two fixes for it:
2$ earplugs
or
400$ aftermarket exhaust
