My 2004 Vulcan 1500 makes 2 chirps or whistle sounds just before the cooling fan comes on. At first I thought the ladies were whistling at me.
Is this normal and can I get this 'noise' to go away?? I will be taking it in for the 600 mile service soon and want some info on this before I look stupid asking the service techs about it. This sound has got to go.

My 800A does the same thing sometimes. I narrowed it down to it being the cooling fan itself. It chips a couple times when the fan first starts turning (before it reaches full speed where you can hear it running). It seems to only happen on the first rides during the warmer weather each year. After the first few times that it kicks on in the warmer weather, it won't do it again for the rest of the riding season.

Thanks to all who replied.... Kawi says it may just be an over-torque sometime during fan assembly. they say they will look at it when I bring it in for 600 mile service. It happens just as the fan starts turning.
