    Mike FJR
    Sending out a northern Hello to everyone! I picked up my first FJR1300AE a couple of weeks ago and looking forward to learning about the FJR history and sharing my own experiences. Iím having a blast on this thing but Iím also finding some intricacies, like the flock of birds in the rpm range of 15K to 25K. I have browsed the forums about a similar high pitch noise many are experiencing coming from beneath the tank. My 2018 is also coming from the same area but it sounds more like I said, a mess of chirping birds. The dealer doesnít know what is causing the chirping but it is common to the model.

    My OCD though is tugging at me to take it further and find out what component is responsible and if itís possible upgrade that part. If it wasnít so loud I would just accept and ignore it. Iím inclined to dismiss to fuel pump as the chirping goes away at higher rpm when it would likely be accelerated. Has anyone aimed at the air intake or throttle bodies?

    Any feedback appreciated!
