Whistling noise on acceleration

Just as the title states. The bike makes a slight whistle when accelerating, think of a loud mouse and you would be right on the mark. Noise is fairly close to me so I know it's something towards the top of the bike.

You could have shook your airbox loose and its whistling. Lift the tank up and reposition it on the intake.
