    96 1100 Sport that makes a squeaking noise that seems to be coming from the engine but does not increase with rpms.I currently have the fairing and headlight removed so those two are out.Would appreciate any input.
    Thanks

    how about a link to youtube.
    hard to think but i wonder if it is the engine as all parts are increasing with revs. when you say squeak. can you hear roughly where it is coming from. mechanics some times use a wooden handle screwdriver and hold this to the engine. the noise is amplified. this might help.
    is the bike working ok. charging. starting ok.

    Thanks for the reply.Everything is working fine,just this very irritating squeaking noise.No luck with the screwdriver stethoscope.When you increase rpm you can no longer hear it. Stock pipes so they aren't all that loud.
    I may try to find a blood pressure monitor of the old style and see if I can find it that way.
