Found this on the US Site. No one here seems to have had the same issue.
When i stop the bike after a run i get a "groaning" noise come from the fule cap. If i release is a bunch of air whooshes out and then after a while it all starts up again as the tank must pressurise again.

Yep, nothing to worry about. Just the bike saying it wants to keep playing..

Yep mine does that to, though not to that extent. Must be part of the tank venting system?   :wht11 :wht11

Mine does it too. Nothing to worry about, just bike sighing after a good ride.

The only groaning I hear is me lifting my ancient leg over the seat to get off  :grin

The only groaning i here is the wife saying "youre not going out on the bike again" but air whooshing out of the fuel cap, all the time even more so when it gets warmer, its called character......

Mine has always done it, particularly in hot weather. The whale noises start up not long after stopping. Cleaning out the vent every so often (give it a good spray with cleaner) just to make sure vacuum does not build up.  Noises means it is working.

ST1100s tend to do it more obviously.

Mine has been doing this for years but never knew the reason. At least now I know it is not a problem.

I fixed it for Pezzz, gave him the cap from my spare tank, now his 11 no longer does it but the spare tank in the shed does.

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
I believe in the "hereafter", every time I go to the shed I have to think "what am I here after"

Just replace the filter and make sure the hoses are ok.
