Gas tank sings or whistles
My Versys 650, 10.000 km old now, produces a sound that increasingly irritates me. It seems to come out of the gas tank, but probably the source is beneath the tank. The frequency is high (8000?) at idle speed and becomes a little higher when the engine runs faster. At speeds above 50 km/h or so it is masked by other noises, but at a red light it is clearly audible.
I cannot tell if the squeak has been there from the beginning and I noticed later (it's not a bug, it is a feature?) or if it came up a while ago.
Is that a known issue, does one of you have experience with it?
