    Faint Buzzing from tank when parked

    I’ve just been for a quick 30 mile ride and put my bike bike in my garage. For the first time ever I could hear a constant faint buzzing noise every 10 seconds or so for about 2 seconds each time coming from my tank.
    The bike has been parked for about an hour now and it’s still doing it.
    Any ideas?

    Open the filler cap when outdoors after a run and see if any air rushes out - if it does it may then be a venting problem.

    The noise finally stopped before I got a chance to open the fuel filler. It was an electric sounding buzzing but I’ll update this post if it happens again when I get out for another ride.

    It’s an air control valve on top of the air box I think

    That does sound like it although my ignition was off & key out.

    Its answered my curiosity though ( I wasn't too worried about it ).
    thanks everyone.
