growling noise when starting
hi all, new to your forum. new 2001 vstar 650 owner(custom)about 6 months. have owned other bikes in pass have tools can wrench some. Im in the middle of valve adjustment now but problem I have is:

when I turn ignition key on and then click on the on(orange)button before hitting start there is a sudden growling noise from under gas tank.(I checked for kittens none crawled up there. It lasts 1/2 second to sometimes 1-3 seconds. I wait for it to finish growling and then hit the start button. This I take as normal but lately it has started growling while I am riding and does not stop. I pull over shut bike down and restart and the growling noise returns. Any ideas whats going on. thanks serengetiotdog.
