Question Bleeding sound after shut down

Last night I was in the garage after riding home. The bike was still warm when it intermittently made a pitchy bleed-off noise. It sounded like air being let out of a balloon. It was coming from around the instrument panel area. My thought when I first heard it was that it could have been the fan but I'm sure it wasn't when I heard it the second and third time. I'm wondering if it's coming from the coolant tank? Anybody else ever hear this?

Shaka Brah!!

Yes it is fuel tank venting.
My sound like somebody whistle. Like in movie when people making tea with tea pot which whistle when water is boiling.

Try to open tank and you will see how much air will com out.
