I own a 2002 ZX6R. I noticed that when the engine is hot, I get a whistling noise from my gas tank. When I release the pressure from the tank, the noise goes away. The noise continues when the pressure builds back up or until the engine cools down. I took it back to the dealership where I bought it. Basically, they told me that every Ninja has done this, since the beginning of time. Is this normal? Is this true? Does anybody else have this problem?
Thanks!

well it should happen whenever the pressure builds up... easier for pressure to build up on a hot day + riding... but it can build up from just sittin out in the sun on a hot day...

My EX250 did it when I'd been out ridin' or left it sitting out in the hot sun. I kept hearing it and thinking something was wrong till I figured out what it was... after that I never gave it another thought.
