What do you hear? It sounds pretty healthy to me - idle RPM may be a bit high, but that's it.

Sounds a lot like my Concours idling.

Is it like a faint whine sound?

Honestly it sounds like some gear whine. It may disappear or change with temperature as things heat up, and/or the oil viscosity changes but it really sounds pretty normal. My Concours engine is very similar to your bike's and it sounds the same.

It really sounds normal to me. Why are you convinced this is a problem?

Hey, maybe you hear something I don't when there in person..

I don't hear anything to be concerned about. Not to take anything away from this forum (it's a great forum), but if you're looking for a definite answer there is a z1000 forum you can ask on

I think I know what your talking about, it sounds like if it was a loose belt or something right? But motorcycles don't have belts. Lol, My bike makes the same noise when I start it but I always thought it was normal, sorry don't know what it could be.
