When it's hot and normally when I pull up to a stop, I can
hear the fan kick in, and it whines fairly loudly.

Does everyone else have this issue as well?

No issue...just the fan doing its thing. And that nice hot air feels great at a stoplight when it's 90+...NOT! Wish I could save that up for the wintertime...

You could try squirting a little penetrating lube where the shaft comes out of the motor. If it quiets down then the bearing is worn and it may need to be replaced.

Just my 0.02.

Put a set of cobras or something on. Then you wont even notice it. LOL Yea pretty common. Your discriprion of loud VS someone elses though. I can hear mine but I dont think its all that loud or whiney. Besides its better than spark knock eh?

It's when you don't hear it that you need to worry and watch for the idiot light on the dash.

Now that I've baffled my Cobra's I hear the fan more often but its very quiet and you really have to strain to hear it run ( even at an idle )

I can hear mine also, even with debaffled oem pipes. But, it's not loud at all. Kind of a whirrrrring. In fact, when it first kicked in this spring, Kinda freaked because I hadn't heard it before. My ears are getting tuned to the different sounds the bike makes. Now, I look forward to hearing it since it has gotten hotter out. I think I would be more concerned if I didn't here it.
