Weird electrical noise when engine shutoff
« on: May 17, 2019, 11:50:28 PM »
Good evening gents,

So had a question, I've already noticed this several times:

once I shut off my z900, and pull out the key, the bike makes electric noises similar to the ones when you turn the key into ignition.

Today I rode the bike for a bit, turned her off and took key out... Then I come back hour and a half later and just as I'm approaching it, it's making that same noise again.

Duration usually lasts 10-15s.

Could be a normal thing, I have no idea. Anyone else experience this?

Thanks

It is either that or the tank venting...hard to diagnose over the internet

Next time you hear this, open the gas cap and watch it go away.

Most likly is just your tank venting...next time you hear it pop open your gas cap and it will stop.
 Then you will know for certain

Is it like a hissing sound when the bike is parked outside in the direct sunlight? I noticed on my bike that the noice originates from the fuel tank. According to the owners manual it's a venting of the fuel fumes from your tank.
