Re: like a high pitched zinging sound!! as zan put it coming from my bike

draco, I forgot what the whole thing was about. If it's not the gas-tank vent, I'm with Felix, maybe an exhaust leak. High-pitched makes me think something to do with air, it's the only thing that could cause something like this. So either gas vapor escaping, air being sucked into the engine, maybe pressure from the crank/heads leaking out of their vents, or the exhaust.

How does the sound change, and when/where does it start/stop?

it sound like it coming from the front of the bike......can hear it coming up from where the handle bars come through.....and it happens when i get to about 4.500 rpms on the tach.....but a low speed it sounds normal but when i punch it that when the sound starts and seem to be reving high.....it doesnt seem to be miss idling tech

I feel like I may have the same problem, I hear a air hissing when I accelerate after riding for awhile. Not gas tank and not fan kicking on. Is it a hiss like mine where it sounds like air is rushing in or is it a mechanic whine?
