I'm getting my V ready for a long trip come Friday and I've started hearing a specific noise when at idle and after throttling. The bike is running very smoothly after an oil change and air filter change but I'm not sure what the noise is. It seems to be coming from the ignition/radiator area near the front of the bike. It sounds "airy" like.

Here's a video:

Air Box Removed ??

I ask because the connector is one screw and on a angle, for the throttle bodies ,very easy to not have the all the hoses attached properly to the air box, also a connector that many forget to plug in on the right for air temp sensing.

The plug on the right is the small plastic piece with one screw correct? Would you have a picture of that??

Is it the part at 4:40 in this video?

What was the fix to this problem, as i have the same one.
He hasn't been on in a year, I sent a PM to him. I suspected his air temperature sensor wasn't plugged in correctly , my bike did the same thing when i did a valve shim check.
