ahh thats the word i'm looking for trying to describe the noise..."electronic". well i cleaned around the cap, and wiped everything down but mother nature has decided to keep me inside tonight so couldn't do a ride. maybe tomorrow i'll see how everything turned out if the rain clears out.

It's normal to hear an electronic whirring as you turn on the ignition which is the fuel pump priming. Not on turn off though.
It's the cap me thinks

I would check the vent line as well; not sure if the Kawi caps are vented but that would explain it.

The wifes Hyosung actually has a charcoal can and vacuum valve for emissions; it would squeal like when it is hot out.
A wise man once told me: "No matter how fine she is, just remember. Somewhere, someone is tired of her !"

My kawi does it also, i learned to ignore it as it would only do it after i got off the track or my tank was in the sun. not a big deal IMO
