Thought I would say "hello".

Well hello! I just upgraded my 03 Z1000, to a brand new 06 ZX-10. I must say it is a big jump. I love the bike though. I only have one complaint so far, and that is that my gas tank makes a sqwealing noise when the bike warms up...not to sure what it could be. I know that gas expands when it gets hot, and i know that the bike has a vent to compensate for this.(let the air or fuems out.) However, I am around a lot of bikes all the know, its a lifestyle, and i haven't ever noticed anyone else's doing this?? any ideas??

Thanks in advance and hello once again!

Welcome! That squeal happens to most of us I 04 included.

I've got something to say...It's better to burn up, than to fade away!

Please, call me Burner.
