Hi guys just bought a 2009 model couple of days ago love it after owning tdm 900 etc. Love the motor and so comfortable. Small niggle mostly at low revs or in traffic I am hearing a strange noise it's like a whirring noise or pressure releasing its hard to explain but bike rides so nice. Any ideas guys whilst in warranty period ?

Regards Gazza.

Welcome gazza, I'm sure someone will be able to help you, although it doesn't sound serious. If it had heavy mileage I would suggest alternator bushes but unusual.

Welcome Gazza 58, and fi woes are normal regarding the fuel pump/injection system/mixture settings....noisy fuel pump is common on these and is a sign the filter is blocked or the pump worn and not producing the correct pressure., take it out and check/clean the filter...if still the same change the pump.

You can check the mixture via the buttons on the dash, but other knowledgeable Fi members should be able to help you out.

I have a 2013 model and the fuel pump is noisy as it primes, is it difficult to get at the filter to clean it? I wasn't aware you can alter the fuel injection using the buttons, can anyone tell me the process? This is my 1st XJR so not clued up yet!
