    Hello everyone,
    I am a new rider, I have an 05 1100 vstar, Silverado - has the windshield, bags etc.
    I hear a whistle type noise at cruising speeds, 40 mph to about 60.
    I have stock pipes on it. looking to put some aftermarkets on, but I want to make sure I take care of noise firt as I may not be able to hear it after pipes install.
    Anyone heard of this ?

    Thank you,

    I have same guessing that your noise is same as mine....I think you could call it a whining noise. If it's like mine, it's transmission gear whine..perfectly normal.
