Bike has like 26 miles on it, which was just the first day I brought it home. When I first put it in the garage, it made some weird noises from the gas tank area. I thought it was just vapors escaping and thought nothing of it. It's like a whine noise, but not high pitch. Lasts about a second or two.

Soooo, I thought it went away. But this evening I was tearing the R6 down and about once every minute, I would hear a slight whine noise. Heard it about 8 times before I went over to the 300, and realized it was the culprit.

Making weird ass whining / half whine-half grunt noises.

WTF? :confused:

Keys out of the ignition, kill switch is on, and I'm at a loss. Never heard something like this from any bike. And now I find out it's still doing it a month later. Dafuq?!

Suppose that makes sense, as I was running a propane heater and it touched 85*F in my garage today, while it's been averaging around 15*F every other day.



This is where the R6 and the 300 are sitting for a few more months. It's supposed to be in the low teens for the rest of the week. Riding's not possible.

Yup, my lil' 250 does the same thing....actually does sound like it is a grunting whine, like uhawwww lets go back out there and ride!
Guess my 300 will do the same, going to dealer today to put down a little so he will not sell it, got a buyer for the 250.

It took me a while to figure it out. I was out in my garage at like 10pm by myself and kept hearing it. Thought a cat or something was watching me from the rafters in there and my dog kept looking at me funny from outside. Thought I was gunna die.

It's nothing to do with venting gas. Open the cap it's still gonna do it while the cap is open. I think their must be some type of pump or something on it.
