Probably the tank vent. Mine make a low pitch whistle type sound every so often.

Check to make sure that's not the sound of mice chewing on the wiring.

Ya, I heard when mice are chewing on wire, they pass gas and make that noise.

Yep, I've noticed this noise too and figured that's what it was.  It seems most noticeable after riding on warmer days when the tank is fairly empty.
