Strange Sound

Post by Rikter » Thu Dec 05, 2019 12:21 am


Howdy folks,

Hoping for some assistance here. I put away my 2019 H2SXSE+ for the winter. I topped the tank, added fuel stabilizer, ran the bike to get it nice n mixed, then took out the battery and put it on a tender & put the bike up on the centre stand.

There should be 0 power to the bike and neither terminal cable is touching anything however every 2 mins or so something from the front is making a rooster type noise for 2-3 seconds.

Bike has 167kms on it. It was previously parked on the centre stand with no noise before i took it back outside to stabilize the fuel and then put it right back inside.

Any thoughts? I can't see how it could be a pump or anything since the bike should technically be dead for power. I've tried rocking it back n forth and going from centre stand to side stand and after awhile back to centre stand. Anyone with any thoughts? Going to put the battery back in, take it up/down the street and park it again to see if that resets? it.

Apologies if this is in the wrong section. Figured "maintenance" was the closest topic section.

Is it a whistle sound? If so its the gas tank venting. Totally normal.

You may have correctly identified the issue. Took it out for a up down of the street, back indoors and set it up again for storage but i opened/closed the fuel cap this time. No more sounds.
Thanks!

Your welcome. It will do it more so if the tank is near full, its warm out, just after the motor was running and heated up or in direct sun light.

Every Kawasaki I own does that. Pressure release.
