Carb Whistle

    Hey All
    So just fitted uni pods and removed the PITA old airbox but now I seem to have a whistle sound when on the throttle. Any ideas what it could be from the carbs?
    Currenlty in Bali away from the bike but need some ideas to look for when I get home.
    Tried a search and got nothing yet.

    I forgot to add. Starts runs and idles perfect plus pulls hard thru all gears so I doubt any air leak.

    Does it whistle a happy tune?

    What carbs? On BS38's a favorite whistle cause is the gasket on the choke housing. Often just snugging the three mount bolts will "cure" it.

    Ha ha ha it is a nice tune but kinda annoying after a long ride. BS34 on the bike so different choke.
