Noisy high pitched radiator fan on s1000F 2019 model

Recently bought the S1000F 2019 model.


Been quite hot here in London recently and engine fan coming on a lot (obviously). But when it does, it gives off a very high pitched noise which I can hear through my helmet and earplugs! Took it for 600m service and told them. They just said that this noise was normal but I wasn't convinced by their response. It's kind of really annoying (in a nagging way) after a while, especially as the fan is coming on a lot.


I know fans can make this noise (happened with laptop I bought and as it happens I had to send it back as it was driving me nuts) but this doesn't sound 'normal'.


Is this common? Anyone else experienced this very high pitched fan noise?? Thanks

Mines set to come on at 195-205 degrees and yep I can hear it pretty good and it does not take long for it to come on at that temp.

ok so I'm not alone then! I was wondering whether there is anything you can do about it but I guess not.


Thanks

I can hear mine when it comes on, just barely with my helmet on, and I don't wear plugs. I sometimes listen to FM radio (through my Sena) and then I don't even notice it. So I would have to say mine is noticeable but not significantly louder than any other bike I've owned.

Mike you don't wear ear plugs ? You know once you damage your ear drums there is no going back. You could hear a throbbing or whishing sound for the rest of your life so be careful with that.
Rusty, mike d and oldjackbob like this.

I know... I know... I really should. I'm already mostly deaf in one ear from a motorcycle accident and skull fracture in my foolish youth. I do have a quiet helmet (GT Air) and I have Sena speakers in them which further blocks outside noise, but I've never been able to get over the inconvenience and discomfort.

Thanks for caring. That could explain why the fan noise doesn't bother me.

Throbbing and whooshing is preferable to the incessant babbling of the incompetent stooges I work with.
