Does your K1300 engine sound like a jet turbine?

When I'm running above 4K RPM my engine sounds like a jet engine.
Not the roar but the high pitched whine. Also similar to the sound of a turbo on a diesel engine.

Not the exhaust note, but from the engine block area.

Is this normal?

Could be the air intake that you're hearing . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Dunno but the combination of the induction roar and the Remus Hexacone talking out the back makes my heart happy
