    I have a trouble on my BMW R 18 which has a little more than 1000 miles.
    Around 750 miles appeared a whining noise.
    This permanent noise is around 1000 hertz, and seems to come from under the tank.
    Could come from the fuel pump, according to it's independence from the RPM and the location.
    In live it much more present, and unpleasant (!) than on the video.
    Can be heard up to 45 mph, even with a full face helmet !
    This trouble makes riding at low speed a pain the a...!
    So far the dealership states the trouble but has no solution.
    They asked to BMW France, but no answer so far.
    Any idea ?

    I can definitely hear it in the video & with that & the other posts on that forum would suspect fuel pump as well.

    The bike runs fine.
    But the pleasure is highly reduced with this noise.
    The loudest zone in fact is just above the tank.
    Just where my head is...
    I'll put the pressure on the dealer to change the fuel pump.
    But if it does it again in 1000 miles, no benefit.

    open pipes would solve the problem

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I am no BMW expert, but this sounds like an air intake noise. Is it a whistling type of sound?

    No. Constant noise, with no relation with RPM.

    I don't know iff the system on the R18 is the same as other fuel injected Beemers - but there are many threads discussing similar problems on the BMW owners association board

    Example - https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...uel-Pump-Whine

    Causes - Bad pump, partially blocked filter or vent line... There may be others.

    We took a 30 mile ride to pick up Mary’s new sunglasses after work yesterday. Even though the store was just 2 miles away.
