    Well it just started, but when I shut my bike off it make a very short whistle sound just as the engine stops. What could be doing it?

    I'm not sure if your hearing the same thing I am. Does it sound like pressure being being relieved or stabilizing. I've never heard this in my Ultra until after the 1000 mile insp was complete.
    I'm not HD savy but we could be hearing same animal.

    My Street Glide does the same never associated it with any problems.

    Nothing to be concerned about. It's the rush of air being drawn in by the piston movement as it stops.

    I have the same thing. I always thought it was my wife whistling at the sight of her "bad boy" husband pulling into the garage... she informed me that it was not :15:

    If you have a high flow AC such as screamin eagle ect. then I'd say it is indeed air whistling through the air cleaner. Mine does it all the time now after installing the AC never noticed it before I did this
